DOMINICAN WINTER LEAGUE (LIDOM)

AGUILAS CIBAENAS 2, TOROS DEL ESTE 1

FORMER INDIANS

Melky Cabrera (RF, Aguilas Cibaenas): 1-4, 1 R, 2 K – Cabrera’s run in the top of the fourth would prove to be the game-winner. Not a bad rebound from his lone hitless game of the season on Wednesday.

Ronny Rodriguez (3B, Aguilas Cibaenas): 2-3 – While Ronny-Rod didn’t score, he did play a crucial role in Cabrera’s run, running into an obvious out at third to draw the throw away from the plate and allow Melky to score.

Robel Garcia (2B, Aguilas Cibaenas): 1-3, 2 RBI, 1 K – As you probably guessed from the statline, Garcia played the most important role in the eventual game-winning hit: driving in the runs.

Abraham Almonte (CF, Toros del Este): 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K – Almonte is hitless in five official at-bats, but has walked in his other thre plate appearances for a .375 OBP through his first two games of the LIDOM campaign.

Alexi Ogando (RP, Toros del Este): 1 IP, perfect, 1 K – Ogando was stellar in his 2020-21 season debut.

LEONES DEL ESCOGIDO 4, ESTRELLAS ORIENTALES 2

FORMER INDIANS

Francisco Mejia (DH, Estrellas Orientales): 2-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – Mejia, who started the season 1-for-7, tripled his season hit total on Friday night while picking up his first extra-base hit of the Dominican campaign in grand fashion with a ninth-inning homer that extended the game for another at-bat.

MEXICAN PACIFIC LEAGUE (LMP)

VENADOS DE MAZATLAN 7, CANEROS DE LOS MOCHIS 4

FORMER INDIAN

Roman Pena (RP, Venados de Mazatlan): 0 IP, 1 HBP – Pena hit the only batter he faced (Caneros starting 1B Darick Hall) to continue a rough season which has seen him post a 22.50 ERA and 2.50 WHIP.
