CARIBBEAN SERIES – ROUND ROBIN DAY 1
*The PROBEIS season was canceled and the league accordingly sent an All-Star team to the Serie. However, they had to enter under the name of one of the league’s teams, so they are listed as the Federales de Chiriqui.
Niuman Romero (PH-backup 3B, Venezuela): 0-1 – Romero grounded out in his only plate appearance of the game, stranding a pair of runners on base to end the eighth inning.
Yapson Gomez (RP, Venezuela): 1 IP, perfect, 2 K – While his side started the Serie 0-1, Gomez got his week in Mazatlan off to a strong start with this perfect seventh frame.
Melky Cabrera (starting RF, Dominican Republic): 1-3, 2 R – All of the Aguilas’ runs came on two hits by CF Juan Lagares (a third-inning homer and a single in the next frame). Cabrera scored on both of them.
Jose Guadalupe Chavez (SS, Mexico): 1-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP, 1 CS – Chavez started his Serie on a high note, getting on base three times and scoring once in the host nation’s Opening Night blowout.
Derrick Loop (RP, Mexico): 1 IP, 2 H, 1 K – Loop pitched a shutout ninth, albeit an eventful one, in his return to the Tomateros to seal the victory for Culiacan.

AUSTRALIAN BASEBALL LEAGUE (ABL)
Samad Taylor (2B, Canberra Cavalry): 0-3, 1 K – Taylor cooled off significantly from his seemingly unstoppable form on Saturday.
Samad Taylor (CF, Canberra Cavalry): 0-4, 1 SB – The stolen base came during the final at-bat of the game after reaching on a fielder’s choice in the contest’s penultimate plate appearance.
Andrew Campbell (DH, Brisbane Bandits): 0-4 – A rare hitless game for Campbell (only his second in his last six).
Ryan Battaglia (C, Brisbane Bandits): 1-4, 1 RBI, 1 K – A rare game for Battaglia. Ryan played multiple games in a weekend for the first time since playing four games in three days during the seemingly round-the-clock festival of baseball that was the Adelaide Hub.
