In the Dominican, Gregory Polanco extended his hitting streak to eight games on Sunday with a double in five AB’s. Despite the hitting streak, he has gone 3-for-13 in his last three games with five strikeouts. He is hitting .394 in 33 AB’s, just two less AB’s than he had all of last Winter in the Dominican. Mel Rojas made his Winter debut last night Carlos Paulino went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts on Sunday. He was making his fourth start and he is currently 3-for-15 at the plate. Opponents were successful on all four stolen base attempts against Paulino last night. Mel Rojas Jr. was activated by Estrellas de Oriente and lined out in a pinch hit AB in the ninth inning. In 120 games with Altoona this year, he hit .271 with a .742 OPS In Venezuela, Jhonathan Ramos retired the only batter he faced on Sunday. He came into the game with two outs in the bottom of the eighth and his team was up by two runs. With a man on first, the southpaw faced Dodgers prospect Joc Pederson, who homered earlier in the game. Ramos struck out the lefty and his team would go on to win 5-4.
