Here is a recap of the day’s events.

Franchy is hitting .286 in the D.R. and batting in the middle of the Leones lineup on a daily basis.
Fernando Tatis Jr.– (1-3) 2B, K, CS

Torrens entered the game late at first base in Venezuela. He is hitting .350 on the year for the Navegantes del Magallanes.
