Things were pretty quiet in the Winter Leagues on Monday. IBI’s Daniel Sherriff takes you Around the Farm.
DOMINICAN LEAGUE (LIDOM)
Abraham Almonte (RF, Toros del Este) – 0-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 SO – Almonte’s game highlight came when he led off the seventh inning with a walk and came around to score on a RBI-groundout by Jeimer Candelario.
Paolo Espino (SP, Toros del Este) – 4.1 IP, 7 H, 5 R/ER, 2 BB, 6 SO – Despite a rough second inning Espino limited the damage to just two runs to stay in the game. He couldn’t recover when he got into trouble in the fifth inning by allowing back-to-back hits to lead off the frame and paid for it by giving up a three-run home run to Moises Sierra.
Sandy León (C, Tigres del Licey) – 1-3, 1 BB, 1 SO – León picked up a base hit in the seventh frame with a lead-off single but was stranded at second base.
COLOMBIAN LEAGUE (LPB)
Vaqueros de Monteria 9, Gigantes de Barranquilla 13
Daniel Aguilar (CF, Gigantes de Barranquilla) – 1-4, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 SO – Aguilar did a little bit of everything in Monday’s contest.
