The Arizona Fall League was quiet on Sunday.
One day after being hit on the head with a pitch, Tigres del Licey slugger Mike Olt sat out of the lineup. But centerfielder Leonys Martin and left fielder Engel Beltre both got the start.
Martin, batting leadoff, went 0-for-4 with a base on balls while the nine-hole hitting Beltre was 1-for-2 with a walk, an RBI, and his first stolen base.
Cardenales de Lara base running and defensive specialist Guilder Rodriguez appeared as a pinch runner in the ninth inning. He played a part in his club's come-from-behind walkoff victory by stealing third base before scoring the tying run on a single. The steal was his second of the winterball season.
There were no Liga Paralela games on Sunday.
Catcher Jose Felix saw action as a late-inning defensive replacement for Guasave but didn't have a plate appearance.
Slumping outfielder Joey Butler saw his batting average fall to .196 after he went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk. After starting strong, the 26-year-old Butler is now just 5-for-33 (.152) in his last 10 contests.
Begins November 8.
