Now that it's officially winter here.... a few Pirates' players and friends in the Caribbean Leagues
Toros del Este 4, Aguilas Cibaenas 2
SS Pedro Ciriaco singled twice for Los Toros, while his brother 3B Audy doubled for Los Aguilas. Pedro singled and stole second base in the 1st inning, but did not score. He was caught stealing after his single in the 7th inning. Los Toros scored 2 runs in the 2nd inning on three singles, a walk, and a sacrifice fly. Audy hit the first of two doubles and scored along with another base runner on the second double in the 4th to tie the score. Los Toros broke the tie with an unearned run on an error, a wild pitch, and an RBI single in the 5th, then added an insurance run on a triple and an error in the 6th.
