VENEZUELAN WINTER LEAGUE
Lara over Caracas 5-4 in 11 innings
RHP Rhiner Cruz pitched a perfect ninth inning (with one strikeout) to send Caracas to extra innings. Caracas lost the game in the 11th, but they are still tied for the lead in the round robin playoffs with a 4-3 record.
No Astros players played in the Dominican playoffs last night, the Puerto Rican League had the night off and the Astros players in the Mexican Pacific League didn't advance so they're done. One stinking inning from Rhiner Cruz is all the action I have to tell you about. The season cannot get here fast enough!
