Winter Leagues: Robbie Glendinning Homers on Saturday; Collects Four Hits on Sunday

In Australia on Friday, Robbie Glendinning started at shortstop and went 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored.

On Saturday, Glendinning was back at shortstop and he went 2-for-4 with a single, walk, three runs scored and his seventh home run.

On Sunday afternoon (feels strange to write on early Sunday morning), Glendinning played second base and went 4-for-5 with two doubles and two RBIs. He has 12 doubles on the season. He has made 16 starts at shortstop, 17 at second base and three at third base. Glendinning is hitting .338/.406/.576 in 36 games. He leads the league with 47 hits and ranks second with 31 RBIs.

In the Dominican on Friday night, the game was suspended in the 13th inning due to rain with a 5-5 score. Socrates Brito was 1-for-4 with a single, two hit-by-pitches, a run scored, an RBI and an outfield assist. One of the hit-by-pitches was by Jonathan Niese, who failed to retire a batter. The must-win game resumed on Saturday and didn’t last long. Brito drew an intentional walk in the 13th and the next batter ended the game when a potential double play grounder was thrown away.

In Mexico on Friday night, Randy Romero got his fourth playoff appearance, but just like the first three, this one was a pinch-running appearance. Unlike the first three games however, Romero didn’t score a run. He has not batted in the playoffs. His team won 4-3 in 14 innings to avoid elimination from the playoffs.

In Puerto Rico on Saturday, Yacksel Rios recorded two outs, one by strikeout, but not before he walked two batters. One of those runners would score after he was pulled from the game. He only other outing in the league finals was a one batter/one out appearance.
