In Australian Baseball League action from today, Zac Fuesser had an impressive five shutout inning performance, as Adelaide rolled to a 5-2 victory. Fuesser allowed four hits, walked two and struck out a season-high eight batters. He threw a high number of pitches over his five innings, 65 out of 103 for strikes, keeping him from going further. Fuesser is now 4-3, 3.51 in ten starts, with 51 strikeouts in 51.1 innings. Stefan Welch went 0-for-3, with two walks and a run scored. Quincy Latimore went 0-for-4, with two strikeouts, just hours after being traded(see details below). In playoff action out of the Dominican from last night, Felix Pie went 1-for-2, with a run scored and an RBI. He was pinch-hit for in the seventh inning, as his team was blown out by an 11-3 score. Pie is hitting .172 in the playoffs and his team has dropped to 2-9 in the 16 game round-robin tournament, eliminating them from the finals. Starling Marte has left his team to return to the States. According to this article(link is in Spanish), Marte is attending a course for Pittsburgh Pirates rookies and he is due to rejoin his Dominican team afterwards. In Venezuela, Darren Ford went 0-for-2, before being pinch-hit for in the sixth inning. He has yet to collect a hit through six playoff games. Pirates Acquire Gomez Yesterday, the Pirates traded Quincy Latimore to the Cleveland Indians for RHP Jeanmar Gomez, who participated in Winter ball in Venezuela this off-season. Gomez made five starts, starting off good in his first two games, before melting down in his last two starts. He finished with a 5.65 ERA in 14.1 innings, allowing 22 hits, three walks and he struck out nine. While the control was good, his .344 BAA was not. In his last three starts combined(the last coming on Dec. 27th), Gomez allowed 16 hits over 7.2 innings.
