In the Dominican on Saturday night, Eric Wood went 2-for-4 with two singles, two walks, a run scored and an RBI in his team’s 7-4 win in 12 innings. His average dropped down to .204 prior to this game, so this could help get him on track this winter. Wood played first base and committed his fifth error this winter, giving him miscues at all three positions he has played (LF/1B/3B).
Pablo Reyes pinch-ran in the eighth inning and scored the tying run in his team’s 5-3 win. He didn’t get to bat in this game. Reyes was running for former Pirate catcher Ronny Paulino.
Willy Garcia struck out as a pinch-hitter while facing former Pirate prospect Joely Rodriguez. Garcia now has a .209 average through 19 games.
In Venezuela, Julio Vivas gave up a lead-off single, which was followed by two outs and two errors. That allowed two unearned runs to score. Vivas has a 4.35 ERA over 10.1 innings in 12 appearances.
In Mexico, Carlos Munoz went 0-for-4. He had a nice four-game stretch going before Saturday, in which he hit his first triple and his first homer of the season, while also scoring runs in all four games. That came after not crossing the plate in his first 33 games.
In Australia, Sam Kennelly went 0-for-2 in the first game of a doubleheader. He played second base for the second time this season. All of his other starts have come at third base. He is hitting .140/.260/.140 through 15 games.
In Colombia, Henrry Rosario played in the All-Star game on Saturday night. A boxscore wasn’t posted, but I had to mention it because of league size, and not to take anything away from Rosario making the team. Colombia plays in a league with four teams and the All-Star game had a total of 52 players on the roster. That means that an average of 13 players per team participated in the game. Both Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco were in attendance during the HR Derby and softball game on Saturday night. I’m not sure about Marte, but I know that Polanco stepped into the batter’s box and took some swings.
