Gregory Polanco played center field on Friday night

Winter Leagues: Polanco Loses Hitting Streak In Loss

In the Dominican, Gregory Polanco had his 13 game hitting streak snapped, but he was still able to reach base once via walk. He finished the game 0-for-3, flying out to deep RF in the eighth to end his streak. In 14 games this season, he has reached base 30 times.

Matt Hague came on in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter for Toros del Este. He stayed in the game at first base and ended up going 0-for-1 with a walk.

In Venezuela, Elias Diaz went 1-for-2 with a walk and run scored. He also threw out the only runner attempting to steal against him. It was just the fourth start for Diaz, who hasn’t played since October 23rd.

In Puerto Rico, rain postponed the day for both Ivan De Jesus Jr. and Jerry Sands. Weather also caused a game in the Dominican to be postponed and one in Mexico, limiting the number of Pirates players seeing action on Sunday.

The Colombian Winter League starts this Friday.

The Australian Baseball League is off until Thursday.
