Luis Durango 4-5, Tobi Stoner Gets Win

10/24/09 Game-
The Gigantes lost 6-2 to Escogido. Luis Durango, a highly touted Panamanian prospect went 4-5, with 2 RBI and a stolen base. He is a burner, as he had 44 stolen bases with the AA San Antonio Missions (Padres) in the Texas League last year. Durango is an import, being from Panama. Mark Hamilton, another import, also had a good game going 3-4.

For Escogido, Tobi Stoner got the win, pitching 6 innings and allowing 1 earned run. He improved to 2-0 on the year, with his second strong start. He is in the Mets organization. Brennan Boesch (1-3, 2 runs) and Conor Jackson (2-4, 3 RBI) again had good nights for Escogido. Jackson is one of a handful of players with extended big league experience in the Dominican Winter League. He seems to be returning to his form of two years ago with the Diamondbacks, after missing last year with illness.
