The Australian Baseball League is off until Friday, when Adelaide will start a four games series against Melbourne. Also in the ABL, Sam Kennelly went 0-for-4, with a walk and a strikeout. The sixteen-year-old third baseman also committed his first error of the season. He is 3-for-19 this season, with three singles and an RBI. In Dominican League action, Starling Marte went 1-for-4, with a single. He now has a .315/.396/.472 line after 23 games. Felix Pie went 1-for-3, with his third home run of the DWL season. The homer led off the game. Pie also added a sacrifice bunt. Anderson Hernandez went 0-for-4, breaking his eight game hitting streak. In Puerto Rico, Benji Gonzalez got his first start in a week. He went 1-for-4, driving in two runs with a ninth inning single. At the time, his team was down 3-0, but they were unable to complete the comeback. In Mexico, Ali Solis went 0-for-4, with a strikeout. He has caught five games in a row after missing two weeks with a hand injury. Jovany Lopez did something yesterday that he didn’t do the entire month of November, he faced more than one batter in a game. Lopez had nine November appearances, facing a total of nine batters. Last night, he retired all three batters he faced. He threw 11 pitches, seven for strikes, getting two groundouts before retiring the side with a pop out to shortstop from former Pirates infielder Luis Cruz. In Venezuela, Ryan Reid pitched a scoreless inning of relief. He was a bit wild, throwing just six strikes out of 13 pitches. Reid allowed just a single, while striking out one batter. He has six straight scoreless appearances, totaling 7.2 innings.
