Former KC Royal Gorkys Hernandez moved into the leadoff spot for Venezuela and went 2-for-5 with a triple, a run scored, and an RBI.

In the nightcap, the Dominican Republic beat Mexico, 3-2. The Dominicans (2-1) handed Mexico its first loss (2-1).

The DR was down 2-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth and scored one run. They walked off in victory with two runs in the bottom of the ninth against former big leaguer Oscar Villarreal. Elian Herrera’s walk off single came with two outs (Herrera plays for Milwaukee).

Jandel Gustave made his Caribbean Series debut for the Dominican Republic and allowed an unearned run on two walks over one inning of relief. Gustave induced three ground outs in the sixth before leaving the 7th inning after walking the leadoff batter (which came around to score on an error by the centerfielder).

About Jen Nevius

I first became a KC Royals fan way back in 1995 when I attended my first Wilmington Blue Rocks game. I fell in love with minor league baseball then and began following the Royals as former Blue Rocks clawed their way to the big leagues. 3+ years ago I started covering the Royals for Aerys Sports, but since the site has been shut down, I am going out on my own.
