Castellanos features in Tiburones victory
Venezuelan Winter League

La Guaira 4, Aragua 3
Dodgers' No. 10 prospect Alex Castellanos went 3-for-4, drove in two and missed the cycle by a triple to lead the Tiburones to victory. Despite the outfielder's big night, it still took an RBI single by Oscar Salazar in the top of the ninth to break a 3-3 deadlock. Twins' No. 5 prospect Oswaldo Arcia tied the game with a two-run homer in the seventh inning for the Tigres. Box score

Anzoategui 3, Magallanes 1
Niuman Romero (Tigers) hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the sixth inning, and Gustavo Molina (Yankees) added insurance with a solo shot in the eighth to give the Caribes the 3-1 win. Starter Yadel Marti allowed a run on four hits in five innings but took the no-decision while Navegantes starter Eric Junge (Rockies) suffered the loss, despite giving up just one earned run on three hits in his five frames. Box score

Caracas 2, Lara 1
Red Sox farmhand Ronald Bermudez entered the game as a pinch-runner in the seventh inning and went on to hit the game-winning RBI double in the top of the ninth for the Leones. Carlos Rivero (Nationals) went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored, while Jesus Sucre (Mariners) was also 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Cardenales starter Ryan Feierabend took a no-decision after surrendering one run on five hits over six innings. Gameday box score

Zulia 8, Margarita 3
Reds outfield prospect Felix Perez went 4-for-4 with two doubles but no RBIs for Zulia as three errors by Margarita accounted for four unearned runs by the Aguilas. Major League veteran Sean Burroughs delivered a solo homer and a two-run shot to account for all three Bravos' runs. Box score

Mexican Pacific League

Los Mochis 7, Guasave 5
Saul Soto drilled a tie-breaking three-run homer in the top of the ninth to give the Caneros the suspenseful win. Mendy Lopez and Carlos Orrantia also went deep -- both with solo shots -- in the victory. Algodoneros slugger Jose Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a three-run blast of his own. Gameday box score

Hermosillo 1, Navojoa 0
Garrett Mock (Astros) tossed five two-hit innings and four Hermosillo hurlers combined on a three-hit shutout as the Naranjeros defeated Navojoa, 1-0. The game's only scoring came in the form of a Karim Garcia solo homer in the sixth inning off Mayos reliever Angel Araiza. Gameday box score

Mexicali 7, Culiacan 5
Chris Roberson led off the game with a homer and Roman Pena broke a 4-4 tie with an RBI triple in the sixth inning as the Aguilas racked up 17 hits in a 7-5 win over Culiacan. The Tomateros, who came in at a league-best 10-1, mounted a ninth-inning comeback -- Mario Valdez scoring pinch runner Ramiro Pena on a line-drive base hit -- but could not push the tying run across as Cory Aldridge (Angels) popped out to end the game. Gameday box score

Mazatlan 8, Obregon 5
An two-run single by Ivan Terrazas proved to be the difference for the Venados, who plated two runs in the top of the seventh and three more in the ninth to defeat Obregon, 8-5. Heber Gomez went 3-for-4 with an RBI in the leadoff spot for Mazatlan, and third baseman Jaime Trejo drove in a pair of runs. Barbaro Canizares paced the Yaquis with a two-run homer in the third, driving in former Major Leaguer Alfredo Amezaga. Gameday box score
