In Australian Baseball League action from today, Zac Fuesser struck out seven batters over five innings of work. He gave up four runs, two were earned, getting no decision in the 10-4 Adelaide victory. Fuesser threw 100 pitches, 61 for strikes. He gave up five hits, two walks and two homers. Fuesser was named to the ABL World All-Star team last week. He has a 2-1, 3.91 record, with 22 strikeouts in 25.1 innings. Rinku Singh followed Fuesser, throwing a scoreless inning. In seven outings this season, Singh has throw seven shutout innings. He needed just six pitches(all strikes) to retire the side on three groundouts. Two Pirates farmhands were in the starting lineup for Adelaide, and both had a good day at the plate. Stefan Welch, who was named to the Australian All-Star team, went 3-for-5, with a double, home run and three runs scored. Justin Howard went 2-for-3, with a double, two walks, two runs scored and an RBI. In Puerto Rico, Benji Gonzalez went 2-for-4, with two singles and a run scored. He also committed his first two errors of the season. Gonzalez raised his batting average to .333 through 11 games played. In Mexico, Ali Solis went 0-for-2 before being replaced on defense in the fifth inning. In Venezuela, Ryan Reid had a tough outing. He was able to record just one out, but not before allowing three hits and two runs. Reid did not allow a single run during the month of November. Luis Sanz pitched 2.2 scoreless innings, allowing two hits while striking out three batters. In his four Winter League appearances this year, he has thrown a total of 6.1 scoreless innings. In case you missed it yesterday, Elevys Gonzalez was lost in the minor league portion of the Rule V Draft. After a pinch-hit single last night, he is 2-for-5 during his eight games played. A day earlier, the Pirates traded Ramon Cabrera to the Tigers.
