On Wednesday, Aragua shortstop Luis Hernandez continued his hot-hitting ways by going 1-for-3 with a walk from the bottom of the lineup. In his two postseason games thus far, Hernandez is 6-for-8 with a base on balls. Second baseman Yangervis Solarte, who batted seventh, was hitless with a walk in four trips.
