Jose Pirela Back in Action in Venezuela

New York Yankees utility infielder Jose Pirela is back in action in the Venezuelan Winter League playing for Aguilas del Zulia.  After going hitless in his first game on October 21 he bounced back with a 2-for-3 game last night to give him a .333 batting average for the young season.

Pirela was joined by fellow Yankee Francisco Arcia in the starting lineup for Zulia last night, but Arcia went 0-for-4 to lower his season average to .280. They faced off against Leones del Caracas which featured outfielder Ben Gamel in their starting lineup.  Gamel went 0-for-4, lowering his season average to .268.

Elsewhere in Venezuela, Yankees minor league outfielder Teodoro Martinez had another good game with a 2-for-4 performance for Tigres de Aragua as their left fielder and batting second.  He faced off with fellow Baby Bomber Ericson Leonora who went 1-for-4 with Cardenales de Lara.
