Winter Leagues 11/3 — Another Slow Night; Aussies Get Started

Winter Leagues 11/3 — Another Slow Night; Aussies Get Started

Not too much going on in the Winter Leagues tonight...  the Australians play tonight (for them) or early morning (for us)

 

VENEZUELAN LEAGUE

Tigres de Aragua  1,  Leones del Caracas  0

In the battle of the big cats, Los Leones were held to just 3 hits, plus one walk, and two double plays eliminated two of those base runners.  Pirates' DH Ramon Cabrera had one of the hits, a single in the 3rd.  Los Tigres scored their only run in the bottom of the 3rd.  With one out, former Pirate farmhand CF Jorge Cortes doubled down the right field line, then moved on to third base when the right fielder made a poor throw.  Cortes scored on an RBI single.  1B Hector Gimenez singled twice in the game.  LF Lastings Milledge and C Raul Chavez both doubled.
