COLOMBIAN LEAGUE (LPB_ PLAYOFFS – SERIE FINAL GAME 6 (BEST-OF-7)
Dayan Frias (backup SS, Vaqueros de Monteria): no plate appearances – Frias made his Serie Final debut playing two innings in the field.
Sandy Leon (C, Caimanes de Barranquilla): 0-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K – Leon was the definition of feast-or-famine in Game 6, striking out swinging thrice and scoring as a result of his other plate appearance.
VENEZUELAN LEAGUE (LVBP) PLAYOFFS – SERIE FINAL GAME 2 (BEST-OF-7)
Niuman Romero (3B, Caribes de Anzoategui): 1-5, 1 2B, 2 K – Romero hit a leadoff double on the fourth pitch of the game. No further extra-base hits were added to the scorecard in the nearly eleven innings of baseball that followed.
Henry Martinez (RP, Caribes de Anzoategui): 1 IP, perfect – Martinez was one of two pitchers (both for the Caribes) to throw a perfect inning as the entirety of their outing. The other was Liarvis Breto, who preceded Henry on the mound with a perfect sixth frame.
Cesar Hernandez (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 1-3, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 E – Hernandez was the only man to reach base three times in last evening’s pitchers’ duel, thanks in large part to drawing one-third of all the walks issued in the game.
Carlos Rivero (3B, Cardenales de Lara): 0-4 – This game was more like Games 4-6 of the semifinals series than his last two games for Rivero.
Yonathan Mendoza (PH, Cardenales de Lara); 0-1, 1 K – Mendoza struck out swinging on a full count to end the tenth in his first plate appearance in four days.
Ezequiel Carrera (RF, Cardenales de Lara): 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K – An eleven-inning 1-0 game is going to be filled with missed opportunities, and this one was no exception. Carrera was one of seven players to leave a runner on base with two outs yesterday. The only other Cardenal to do so was also a former Indians prospect (Mendoza).
Yapson Gomez (RP, Cardenales de Lara): 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB – Gomez allowed the eventual winning run to score as an inherited runner.
PUERTO RICAN LEAGUE (LBPRC) PLAYOFFS – SERIE FINAL GAME 3 (BEST-OF-7)
Saul Rivera (RP, Indios de Mayaguez): 0.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (both earned), 1 BB – Rivera was one of many Mayaguez pitchers who struggled on Saturday to bring the Indios to the brink of elimination.
MEXICAN PACIFIC LEAGUE (LMP) PLAYOFFS – SERIE FINAL GAME 2 (BEST-OF-7)
Jose Guadalupe Chavez (SS, Tomateros de Culiacan): 1-5, 3 K, 1 E – Chavez is hitting .136 (3-for-22) in his last six games with no extra-base hits and a 4:2 K:BB ratio.
AUSTRALIAN LEAGUE (ABL)
Samad Taylor (CF, Canberra Cavalry); 0-3, 1 R. 1 BB, 2 K – Taylor extended hos scroing streak to three games for the second time this season thanks to a seventh-inning walk.
Shawn Morimando (SP, Canberra Cavalry): CG, W (2-1), 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R (unearned), 11 K – Morimando needed only 99 pitches (69 of them strikes!) to dominate the Blue Sox lineup on Saturday. I know it’s only a seven-inning game, but in 2021, any complete game is a legitimately impressive accomplishment.
Samad Taylor (CF, Canberra Cavalry): 0-1, 3 BB – While he couldn’t extend the run streak to four games, Taylor had no trouble getting on base in the nightcap thanks to his first multi-walk game of the season.
Andrew Campbell (DH, Brisbane Bandits): 0-5, 2 K – Campbell failed to reach base for only the fourth time in twelve games this season.
