Winter Leagues: Matt Hague Hits Second Homer in Loss

Winter Leagues: Matt Hague Hits Second Homer in Loss

In the Dominican on Tuesday night, Matt Hague went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and a walk in his team's 7-3 loss in 12 innings. He hit the home run off of Jose Contreras. It was the second homer of the season for Hague, who is hitting .293 with four RBI's.

In that same game, Atahualpa Severino came in with the bases loaded, one out and his team down 3-1 in the sixth inning. He struck out the first batter, then got Eugenio Velez to line out to left field to end the inning with no damage. That was the end of the night for Severino, who has allowed two runs over 5.1 innings while picking up eight strikeouts.

Catcher Carlos Paulino got his first start in almost a week and went 1-for-2 with a single, sacrifice bunt and he stole his first base of the season. He is 5-for-20 in seven games.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
