Gigantes Recap: Game Seven

GIGANTES 1, ESCOGIDO 0 AT ESCOGIDO (12 INNINGS)

Batting stars:  Ronald Guzman was 3-for-5.  Luis Marte was 2-for-4 with a double.

Pitching stars:  Chris Ellis struck out seven in six shutout innings, giving up two hits and no walks.  Six relievers each pitched a perfect inning:  Miguel Del Pozo, Reymin Guduan, Wily Peralta, Juan Minaya, Randy Rosario, and Ramon Ramirez.

Opposition stars:  Denyi Reyes pitched five shutout innings, giving up two hits and no walks and striking out two.  Escogido had only two hits in twelve innings.

The game:  While I still don't like the "start with a man on second" rule, this game is an argument for it, because no one might have ever scored otherwise.  They start that rule in the twelfth in this league.  Abiatal Avelino started at second, was bunted to third, and scored on an error for the game's only run.

WP:  Rosario (1-0).  LP:  Adonis Uceta (0-1).  S:  Ramirez.

Notes:  Guzman is batting .333.  Steven Souza was 1-for-5 and is batting .333.  Jose Siri was 0-for-5 and is batting .320.

All the pitchers the Gigantes used have ERAs of zero other than Guduan and Ramirez.

I don't know how big the rosters are in the Dominican League, but Escogido used 17 position players and 7 pitchers.  Not all at once, of course, but still.  The Gigantes used 12 position players and 7 pitchers.

Winning pitcher Randy Rosario is an ex-Twin, playing in their minor league system for several years.

Record:  The Gigantes are 3-4, in fifth place, two games out of first.

Next game:  The Gigantes host Escogido on Friday.
