Triple For Gonzalez and Homers For House, Gimenez, and Chavez


Bravos de Margarita  4,  Leones de Caracas  3  —
 C JR House’s solo homer in the 3rd inning turned out to be the winning run for Los Bravos.  It was a good night for House, who also singled twice and walked once.  LF Mike Ryan and C Carlos Maldonado both singled for Los Leones and Ryan scored once.  Jhonathan Ramos and Jean Machi each were credited with a “hold” — Ramos finished the 7th inning for Los Bravos, retiring the only batter he faced.  Machi pitched a scoreless 8th inning, allowing only a walk.  Jose Ascanio also walked one batter as he pitched a scoreless top of the 9th for Caracas.  

Tigres de Aragua  6,  Caribes de Anzoategui  1  —  Homers by 1B Hector Gimenez and C Raul Chavez boosted Los Tigres over Los Caribes.  Two singles and a fielder’s choice gave Los Tigres a run in the top of the 1st, and both Gimenez and LF Lastings Milledge walked in that inning, as Aragua left the bases loaded.  Los Caribes tied the score at 1-1 in the 3rd on two singles, a bunt, and a sacrifice fly.  That chased the Aragua starter, and brought in Wil Ledezma from the bullpen.  Ledezma finished the inning and went on to pitch two more innings, retiring all 7 batters he faced, including 3 strikeouts.  Los Tigres took the lead again in the 7th, with a solo homer by Gimenez, a run on a double and a single, and then Chavez’s 2-run homer.  They added one more solo homer in the top of the 9th.  


Algodoneros de Guasave  2,  Tomateros de Culiacan  1  —  Guasave took a 3-2 game lead in this semi-final series with this win.  Three singles and a fielding error gave Guasave their 2 runs in the 3rd inning.  Los Tomateros scored their only run in the top of the 7th on a solo home run.  1B Yurendell de Caster walked once but did not score for Guasave.  SS Luis Cruz went 0-for-4 for Culiacan.
