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.

In Mexico, Ali Solis went 2-for-3 with a double, walk and run scored. He is now hitting .340 in 50 AB’s.

John, That’s no fair, getting our hopes up that Hague might be doing pretty well and then later telling us the HR came off Contreras. Severino’s scoreless 2/3 of an inning should have been the headline, it’s more impressive than any HR off Jose ๐Ÿ™‚


John, is there a reason Greg polanco hasn’t played for escogido in last 2 games? Thanks


I’ll trust your expertise John, but if it’s catchy headlines you want, can I suggest using “Hitman” instead of “Hague”


Seriously, “The Hit Collector”? That’s way too cumbersome. No wonder nobody’s given him a real chance yet. Make it “The Hitman” and he’ll have a job in the majors next year. Seriously, if he adds any power this offseason, I hope it’s the Bucs that give him that chance.


Damn those trademark laws and Easler’s lawyers!
