Brayan Rocchio (La Guaira, 2B): 2-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – Rocchio was impressive, to say the absolute least, in his 2022-23 LVBP season debut.  He started his sophomore season in the Venezuelan circuit with a pair of doubles, including a bases-clearing line drive to left in the seventh inning that gave the Tiburones the lead for good.

Alexfri Planez (Caracas, CF): 0-5, 1 R, 2 K – Planez was the only Leon to play the entire game and not get a hit but did score the first run in the bottom of the tenth to re-tie the game after starting the inning as the extra runner.

Jaison Chourio (Zulia, backup RF): 0-0, 1 R, 1 BB – The younger Chourio brother, who remains hitless in three official LVBP at-bats, scored his second run of the season and first from a plate appearance following an eventful trip around the basepaths in the eighth.  He led off the bottom half of the frame with a walk, swiped second for his first Venezuelan League steal, advanced to third on a single, and then finally scored on a sac fly.

Trenton Brooks (Licey, 1B): 1-4, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB – Brooks reached base twice for only the third time in ten games played this Dominican season, with all five of his RBI coming in two of those games (yesterday and October 17).

Jose Tena (Estrellas, starting SS): 0-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K, 1 SF – While his eleven-game hitting streak came to an end on Sunday, Tena scored his fourth run of the Dominican campaign after reaching on a fielder’s choice in the third.  He also drove in his seventh run of the season on a fifth-inning sac fly.
