In Venezuela: Alcides Escobar went 0-for-4 with a walk and scored a run for Lara.

The hitless performance dropped Escobar's batting average to .385, still good enough to win the VWL batting title by four points over Mets prospect Josh Thole. He also finished sixth in the league with a .430 OBP, 11th with a .915 OPS, tied for seventh in hits (65), and tied for fifth in stolen bases (13).

In Mexico: Luis Cruz went 1-for-4 and scored a run.

In Puerto Rico: Efrain Nieves had his longest outing in the PWL, pitching 3.1 innings in relief and allowing no runs on two hits and no walks, striking out two. He now has a 3.27 ERA in 11 innings, and has more strikeouts (11) than hits allowed (10).
