Looking in on Pirates' players and friends in Tuesday's winter league action:

 

VENEZUELAN LEAGUE

Cardenales de Lara  5,  Tigres de Aragua  4

Los Tigres posted 10 hits, out-hitting Los Cardenales (6 hits), but late-inning runs could not get them caught up to Lara.  LF Jonel Pacheco, hitting lead-off, homered and singled for Los Tigres.  SS Ronny Cedeno went 1-for-5 and 1B Hector Gimenez walked twice, and scored in the 8th inning after a double and an RBI ground out.  Wil Ledezma pitched in relief for Los Tigres, entering the game in the top of the 4th with two runners on and one out.  Ledezma induced a double play to end the inning.  He gave up a walk in the 5th, but did not let the run score.

 

Leones del Caracas  5,  Caribes de Anzoategui  3
