Gigantes leave runners on corners in loss, Mark Wagner 2-4

10/23/09 Game-
It was a really good game tonight at the Julian Javier Stadium in San Fransisco de Macoris. The Gigantes lost 3-2, but had runners on the corners with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Zack Segovia struck out the final batter for Escogido to get the save.

Mark Wagner had another good game for Gigantes, going 2-4, after hitting home runs in two strait games. Check the Labels to see all my posts about Wagner (or any players). He is leading the Dominican Winter League in home runs with 2. He is in the Red Sox organization. Luis Villareal pitched 5 innings and allowed 1 run for the Gigantes, but got the loss. He has an ERA of 3.38 after two games, but has two tough losses. Estarlin de los Santos had his hit streak end at 5 games.

As I mentioned a few posts back, Brennan Boesch (Escogido) could be a player to watch going forward. The ball really pops off his bat. He went 2-4 last night, with 1 RBI, 1 run scored, and 1 stolen base. He was with the Tigers AA team last year and had a great year playing right field. Boesch is tied for the league lead in RBI with 6 after 6 games. Again, check the labels to see previous posts on Boesch. Arizona Diamondback fans will be interested to know that Conor Jackson is also playing with Escogido. He did not have any hits last night, but is near the top of the league with a .421 average after 6 games played.
