After Monday off, the Winter Leagues are back in action, including some Pirates' players and friends

 

PUERTO RICAN LEAGUE

Leones de Ponce  9,  Criollos de Caguas  6

SS Benji Gonzalez had one hit for Los Leones, a single which loaded the bases in the 2nd inning (none of them scored).  Los Leones scored 4 runs on a pair of 2-run homers in the 3rd inning, then hung on for the win.  Former Pirate farmhand RJ Rodriguez earned his 7th save of the winter league season with a scoreless 9th inning -- he gave up one single, and struck out the other three batters he faced.  Former Indy Indian SS Luis Figueroa had an RBI single for Los Criollos in their 3-run 6th inning.  Ponce made two errors in that inning, including a throwing error by Gonzalez.

 

Gigantes de Carolina  5,  Indios de Mayaguez  0

3B Jeremy Farrell went 0-for-3 with 2 strikeouts, dropping his batting average to .208, as Los Indios were held to just 5 hits in the game.
