Winter Leagues: Socrates Brito Homers

In Australia on Sunday, Robbie Glendinning went 2-for-4 with a run scored. He reached base in all five plate appearances in his previous game. Glendinning is hitting .337/.418/.593 in 23 games.

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

In Puerto Rico, Chris Sharpe got credit for the home run he hit on December 21st. That game was suspended before it went official. Sharpe went home a week ago, but the suspended game was finished on Sunday. He hit .261/.391/.406 in 25 games this winter.

In Mexico, Randy Romero came on as a pinch-runner in the eighth inning and scored a run. He remained in the game in center field. Romero is hitting .161/.188/.194 in 31 games this winter, though he only has 31 at-bats.
