Happy Thanksgiving! Checking in with the Pirates' players and friends in Wednesday's winter league action:
PUERTO RICAN LEAGUE
Indios de Mayaguez 1, Criollos de Caguas 0
Los Indios posted 10 hits but left 8 runners on base, scoring only one run. A double and two singles brought in the lone run, but left the bases loaded and one out. Unfortunately, 3B Jeremy Farrell bounced into a double play to end the rally. Farrell went 0-for-4 in the game.
Gigantes de Carolina 4, Leones de Ponce 2
Los Gigantes scored a pair of runs in each of the first two innings, leaving Los Leones to try to catch up. SS Benji Gonzalez went 0-for-2 at the plate, and made a throwing error, though the error did not lead to a run.
Nancy grew up in Rochester, NY, where her father indoctrinated her to the love of baseball as a small child. He taught her to keep score at the age of 5, and she hasn't stopped since. She now lives in the Indianapolis area with her husband and two sons. Nancy has followed the Indians on both the Most Valuable Network and the Bloguin group, before joining Pirates Prospects in 2011. She provides daily game recaps from Indianapolis, plus player analysis from the guys she sees live at the games.
