Joaquin Arias had a rough night as leadoff hitter of Escogido. Arias’ club dropped a 4-3 decision in 12 innings, and he went hitless in six at-bats, striking out twice.

Esteban German played right field for the Toros in their 3-1 victory over Licey. German singled three times, drove home two runs, and stole his second base in as many games.

Defensive replacement Engel Beltre played centerfield and grounded out to first base in his only plate appearance.

Toros reliever Jumbo Diaz picked up his first hold of the postseason, retiring all three hitters he faced in the eighth inning.
