Mark Wagner Injury, Manuel Mayorson 4-5; Jacob Cruz and Wilson Betemitt debut

10/30/09 Game
The Gigantes lost another road game, and fell to 0-7 on the road.

Mark Wagner got hurt on a play at the plate, and left the game. He was 1-1 at the plate and is near the top of the league with a .346 average, along with 6 walks and 2 HRs.

Manuel Mayorson went 4-5 in the win for Toros de La Romana. He is batting .395 and has been starting daily for the Toros at SS and 3B. He is in the Marlins organization and saw action in 97 games with the New Orleans Zephers of the Pacific Coast League.

10/31/09 Game
The Gigantes won a thrilling game at home, coming back with 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th to win 4-3.

Jacob Cruz debuted for the Gigantes. Another imported American, he is a very interesting player. He played parts of 9 seasons in the big leagues, and has played in Korea and Mexico. He had huge numbers last summer in the AAA Mexican League (which has unaffiliated players). He went 2-4 in this game and seemed to be a crowd favorite.

The Gigantes also traded for Wilson Betemit (earlier in the week) and he debuted last night. He had a pinch hit RBI that helped the Gigantes come back in the 9th. He has spent time in the big leagues the last 8 seasons, and played 20 games with the White Sox last year.
