Winter Leagues: Polanco’s Hustle Not Enough in Escogido Loss

From the Dominican League finals on Monday night, Gregory Polanco went 1-for-4 in his team’s 2-1 loss. It was the opening game of the best-of-nine series. Polanco’s only hit was a single and he didn’t hit it hard, but it impressed Baseball America’s Ben Badler, who was in attendance. Badler tweeted shortly after the play that Polanco showed off his impressive speed by beating out a routine grounder to second base for an infield hit. He is hitting .185 in seven playoffs games.

If you missed it from yesterday, Starling Marte is done with Winter ball this season.

From the Colombian League finals on Sunday, Harold Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a single, hit-by-pitch and two runs scored. His team lost 11-9 to Leones, tying the best-of-seven series at one game apiece. Ramirez was the only Pittsburgh Pirates player to get into Sunday’s game.

From Panama on Sunday, Edgardo Munoz went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his team’s 6-4 loss. Munoz has a .227 average and .570 OPS in 11 games. Ulises Montilla did not play on Sunday. He missed two of the last four games and left the other two games early.
