Milledge and Gimenez Spark Los Tigres; Julio Returns To Pirates


The Mexican Pacific and Puerto Rican leagues had the night off, and none of our Pirates’ players and friends got into the Dominican League games.  In the Venezuelan League:
Tigres de Aragua  10,  Bravos de Margarita  4  —  Los Tigres got the ball rolling with 5 runs in the 3rd inning, and just kept going.  Aragua sent 10 batters to the plate in the 3rd, including a double and six singles.  LF Lastings Milledge had an RBI single in the inning, and came around to score on two more singles.  Another run scored in the 4th, and C Raul Chavez singled in the rally that produced a run in the 5th.  1B Hector Gimenez had the second of two singles in the 6th, and Milledge drove in both runners (one RBI and one in on an error) with a double.  Gimenez provided the final run in the 8th with a solo home run.
