Los Tigres de Aragua scratched out 3-1 win Sunday over los Bravos de Margarita. Kyle Middleton (Houston) took the start, pitching 4 innings, allowing 4 hits and 1 walk while striking out 1, but would come away with a no decision.

Jose Mijares (Minneosta) picked up his second win of the season, tossing a scoreless 5th inning.

The Tigres got onto the board in the second inning when former Miracle Alex Romero (Arizona) singled, then moved to 3rd on a Luis Maza (LA Dodgers) double. A fielder's choice took Maza out at 3rd, while Romero scored the Tigres first run.

The score would stay that way until the 7th. With 2 outs, Jose Martinez (St Louis) singled his way onto base then came home when Alex Delgado (F/A) knocked a ball over the left field wall for a 2-run home run.

Margarita would answer back when Victor Rodriguez (F/A) took a walk off Oswaldo Sosa (Minnesota) and then Alberto Gonzalez (NY Yankees) walked off Yohan Pino (Minnesota). Darryl Brinkley (F/A) would single to bring in Rodriguez, but Pino got the next 2 outs to end the scoring threat.

Sosa worked 1.1 inning allowing 1 run on 2 walks, while Pino threw 1 inning allowing 1 hit and striking out 1.

Romero ended up 1-for-4 in the game with a run, Maza was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles.

Aragua starts out Tuesday against los Caribes de Anzoategui for a 7:30 PM AST game.
