Margarita 1 at Aragua 4

W: B. Bass (2-0, 0.46); L: M. Connolly (1-2, 3.94); SV: Y. Pino (1)
HR: MAR: R. Reyes (2). ARA: M. Aviles (4), J. Martinez (2).

Brian Bass (Minnesota) silence the Margarita offensive to reach his second victory of the Venezuelan Winter League season. Bass work 6.1 innings, allowing 3 hits and striking out 3.

Yohan Pino (Minnesota) picked up the game save, coming in to face one batter and get the final out.

Michael Connolly (Kansas City) suffered the defeat with a performance of 6 innings, allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits while striking out 3.

The only Braves run came off a Rene Reyes (F/A) home run in the ninth off Francisco Butto (F/A).

Bobby Koreckey (Minnesota) pitched 1 inning in relief for the Tigres, striking out 2 during his outing.

Brian Buscher (Minnesota) sat out his second straight game. Former Miracle Luis Maza (LA Dodgers) was 2-for-4 at the plate. Alex Romero (Arizona) was inserted into the game late and did not bat.

Kansas City's Mike Aviles had 2 for the Tigres runs, including a home run in the sixth inning.

Note: MLB has decided we don't need the game logs anymore, and neither the Tigres or the Bravos site was not particularly forthcoming, so this was the best I could do.

The Tigres rest up on Monday and return to action on Tuesday against the La Guaira.
