Due to rain. As this was the final meeting between the River Bandits and the newly-minted Cubs, this game will not be made up. The River Bandits have an off day today as they head home. On Wednesday, they'll welcome the Lansing Lugnuts to Modern Woodmen Park.

DSL Astros Blue 10, DSL Rays 9

W- Jose Rosario (1-1)
L- Miguel De La Cruz (0-1)
S- Dariel Aquino (1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team was outhit 16-8 and were down 6-3 after the 3rd inning, but they still managed to emerge with the victory. Such is life in the Dominican Summer League. It got a little hairy late as the Rays scored 3 in the 8th to make it a 1-run game.

Both teams traded 2 runs in the 1st inning. Andy Piñeda led off the game with a walk, and a passed ball and 2 wild pitches later, he scored the first run of the morning. Orlando Marquez added an RBI groundout. Another wild pitch in the 2nd allowed Cristopher Luciano to score. The Rays got 4 in the 3rd to take the lead, but the Blue tied it with 3 in the 4th. Their 3 runs scored on zero hits. They drew 3 walks to open up the frame. Andy Piñeda hit an RBI groundout, and two more wild pitches allowed Carlos Canelon and Juan Piñeda to score. In the 5th, they got an RBI double from Jose Benjamin, a 2-run double from Canelon, and a sac fly from Andy Piñeda. Angel De Leon finished 3-5 with a double and a run scored. He has a 5-game hitting streak and has a hit in 7 of the 8 games he's played so far.

Felipe Tejada went 3+ innings and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits while striking out 4. Jose Rosario allowed 3 runs on 7 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5 in 4.1 innings. Saul Martinez got the 2nd out of the 8th inning with a strikeout. Dariel Aquino allowed a hit as he got the final 4 outs of the game.

The Blue team played the Phillies today.

DSL Cardinals 13, DSL Astros Orange 1

W- David Oca (2-0)
L- Juan Cuevas (0-1)

Orange home runs: None.

They commited 9 errors???

The Orange team still can't seem to get off the schneid. They committed 9 errors in this game. This is not a fabrication... it's what the MILB.com box score says.

They did hold a lead for a bit as Brandon Benavente hit an RBI single in the 2nd. He and Ronny Rafael had 2 hits apiece.

Juan Robles has emerged as a bit of a bright spot in a tough start for the Orange team so far. He walked 2 and struck out 7 over 4 innings. Juan Cuevas allowed 9 runs, but amazingly, only 1 of them was counted as an earned run. He went 2 innings and allowed 4 hits (3-run homer) and struck out 1. Michael Richez also pitched 2 innings; he allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits and walked 2. Ezequiel Madera allowed 2 runs, a double (1 run scored on that double), and walked 3 in the 9th.

The Orange team played the Mariners 2 today.
