The Mexican Pacific and Puerto Rican Leagues have Friday night off, but the Dominicans and Venezuelans continue to play, with a few Pirates' players and friends:
Aguilas Cibaenas 8, Leones del Escogido 4
Los Aguilas broke a 4-4 tie with 3-runs in the 6th, for an unusual loss for Los Leones. Escogido scored 2 runs in the top of the 1st. Los Aguilas got one run back in the bottom of the frame, with a single, a stolen base, and an RBI double by RF Brandon Moss. Two fielding errors and an RBI single tied the game in the bottom of the 3rd, then Moss gave Los Aguilas the lead with a 2-run homer. Los Leones tied the score again with 2 runs in the top of the 5th. The 6th began with three singles for Los Aguilas, driving in one run. After a wild pitch and a walk, another single added 2 more runs. A solo homer in the 7th gave Los Aguilas their final run.
