HR: None.

Some days, I feel like I'm back to writing Miracle game reports.

Los Cardenales de Lara clobbered los Tigres de Aragua 7-1 Thursday, with the Cats only managing 6 hits in the contest.

Seattle's Sean White worked through 7 innings, walking one and striking out three. Aragua's lone run came in the 4th inning when Hector Gimenez (Houston) doubled, moved to 3rd on a Mike Rivera (Milwaukee) single and came home on a sac-fly by Willie Romero (F/A).

It was a day of rest for the Twins as not of their current prospects participated in the game, although several former Miracle players were in uniform for both teams.

Lara was quick to get on the board, taking three runs in the first inning off Tigre's starter Rosman Garcia (Baltimore). Hernan Iribarren (Milwaukee) walked to start the inning. Luis Ugueto (F/A) then tripled him in. Ugueto was plated by Robert Perez's (F/A) ground out. Following a fly out by Jose Lopez (Seattle), Adam Jones (Seattle) singled, then stole 2nd. Selwyn Langaigne (F/A) walked before Wladimir Balentien's (Seattle) single brought in Jones.

Former Miracle Josmir Romero (F/A) replaced Garcia for the top of the 5th. He'd allow a single to Iribarren to start out. Following a pop out by Ugueto, Perez and Lopez hit back-to-back singles to bring in Iribarren, giving them a 4-1 lead.

In the bottom of the 7th, Ugueto singled. Following a fly out by Perez, Lopez moved Ugueto over to 2nd on a gorund ball. Jesus Delgado (Florida) replaced J. Romero on the mound and issued a walk to Jones to load the bases. Langaigne's single to right brought in two, and a wild pitch served to plate Jones before Delgado could find the final two outs to retire the side.

Ugueto was 3-for-5 with 2 runs and 1 RBI for the Cardenales. Luis Rodriguez (San Diego) was 0-for-4 for the Cats, Luis Maza (LA Dodgers) was 0-for-3 and Alex Romero (Arizona) was 1-for-3. Josmir Romero worked 2.1 innings for Aragua, giving up 3 runs on six hits while striking out 2.

Los Tigres play a home-and-home pair against los Navegantes del Magallenes Friday and Saturday. Friday's contest beings at 7:30 PM AST. They are scheduled to take on the Red Birds again on Sunday but all of Sunday's games are showing as postponed by the league. This has something to do with a referendum on Constitutional Reform by the National Electoral Council. Make up dates are yet to be announced.
