In Colombia, Francisco Acuna’s team lost 2-1, but he had a double and drove in their lone run. Through seven playoff games, he is 7-for-28 with two doubles and four walks.
Edgar Barrios continued to struggle at the plate in the playoffs, but his defense has helped keep him in the lineup. He went 0-for-3 yesterday and he’s now 0-for-20 with a walk in six games.
In the Dominican, Socrates Brito went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the sixth, which was a majestic shot, though most believe it was a foul ball. He is 7-for-21 with a double, homer and five RBIs in the first five playoff games.
Here’s the controversial homer, which appeared to be foul judging from still-frame photos on Twitter
