11/7 Winter ball roundup

Thomas Diamond made his first start in the Mexican League on Friday night, and struck out three over three-plus innings in Mexicali’s 5-4 win over Obegron. Diamond did not walk a batter and did not give up a hit until the first two batters in the fourth connected off the right-hander. He was then pulled. Brad Snyder went 2-for-4 with two RBIs for Mexicali, and was batting .348. Brian Schlitter, who totaled 22 saves at Double-A Tennessee, picked up the save, pitching one inning.

In Venezuela, J.R. Mathes gave up two runs on 11 hits over five innings, striking out two, but did not get a decision in Caracas’ 4-3 win over Lara.

Catcher Robinson Chirinos hit his fourth homer, a solo shot, to help Magallanes beat Caribes 3-1. Chirinos was batting .405 and has 12 RBIs. Andres Blanco also had a hit.
