In Australian Baseball League action from today, Stefan Welch belted two home runs, leading Adelaide to a 4-3 victory during the last week of the ABL regular season. Welch homered to lead off the bottom of the second inning, giving Adelaide an early 1-0 lead. In the bottom of the eighth inning, he came up with the score tied 2-2 and Quincy Latimore on first base. Welch hit the second pitch for a two-run homer, giving his team a lead the would hold on to in the ninth for the win. For Welch, he is now third in the league in both homers with seven and in RBI’s with thirty. Adelaide has three games left in their season. Welch leads Adelaide in homers and RBI’s Zac Fuesser isn’t on the weekend roster this week, ending his ABL season. It was a successful campaign for the lefty, who spent the 2012 season with the West Virginia Power. Fuesser made 11 starts, going 4-4, 3.61 in 57.1 innings, with 57 strikeouts. Along with Welch, he represented the Pirates in the ABL all-star game played last month. Sam Kennelly rejoined the active roster of the Perth Heat for this weekend’s series after hitting .538 in the U18 National Youth Championship. Besides Welch, he is the only Pirates farmhand on the active ABL roster this weekend. Kennelly did not play today in his team’s victory. If you missed it from yesterday, Starling Marte was named MVP of the Dominican finals. It was also announced that he won’t participate in the Caribbean World Series next month. The Colombian League Championship series is tied up at one win apiece after the Tigres 9-2 victory last night. Boxscores for the first two games haven’t been posted yet. If they are posted today and either Harold Ramirez or Tito Polo played, I will update this post later. The series continues with game three on Friday night.
