Box Score

Game Notes: The win by the Pirates puts them up 2-1 in the best of five series, with a chance to win the DSL Championship tomorrow. Oderman Rocha pitched five shutout innings his last start, which advanced the Pirates to the second round of the DSL playoffs. Tonight he threw six innings without an earned run, striking out eight and walking none. That gives him a 12:1 K/BB ratio in 11 innings during the playoffs. He had a 1.81 ERA in 49.2 innings during the regular season, with a 53:17 K/BB ratio. Rocha is 19 years old and could be a candidate to move to the US next year.
