Fall/Winter League Update for 10/23/2008

In Arizona: Lou Palmisano went 1-for-4 with a double, walked twice and drove in two runs, Alexandre Periard threw a scoreless 1.1 innings, and Brae Wright struck out two in a perfect inning of work as the Javelinas defeated Phoenix 16-5. The Javelinas have now scored 34 runs in their last two games.

The Javelinas host Phoenix today at 2:35. You wouldn't think homefield advantage in the AFL would be a big deal, but apparently it is: every AFL home team has a winning record at home, going a combined 26-16.

Perhaps today is the day for Angel Salome to break his vow of silence, as well. Angel hasn't played since making his debut on October 8.

In Hawai'i: Logan Schafer went 0-for-5 with a K as the CaneFires lost to Waikiki 9-8.

The CaneFires are off today, and return to action tomorrow.

In Venezuela:
  • Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with 2 doubles, walked, drove in a run and got caught stealing for Lara.
  • Jay Gibbons finally picked up a hit for Magallanes, going 1-for-2 and walking twice.
  • Tony Gwynn went 1-for-3, walked, scored a run and was caught stealing for Magallanes.
  • Hernan Iribarren went 1-for-5, stole a base and scored a run for Lara.
In the Dominican Republic: Brad Nelson, apparently relegated to pinch-hitting duties after getting 3 extra base hits in his first 3 games, got a hit in his only plate appearance last night and drove in a run.
