Luis Durango .483 average, Conner Jackson 2-4

11/3/09 Game
Panamanian Luis Durango continued his hot hitting for the Gigantes and is hitting .483 with 6 walks, and 4 stolen bases. He has been hitting lead off daily and playing center field.

Conor Jackson continued to hit as well, after being named player of the week for the first week. He went 2-4 with 2 RBI to push his RBI total to 10 in 13 games.

The Gigantes lost 4-3, and fell to 0-8 on the road, while they are 5-1 at home. San Fransisco de Macoris does have the best fans that I have seen (I have attended games in Santiaogo and Santo Domingo). The atmosphere is better than a lot of MLB miseason games that I have attended. They are really in to the game and cheer loudly, even at times that do not seem to be big moments. But does a home field crowd really make that much of difference (0-8 vs. 5-1)? They need to improve on the road.
