2/5 Caribbean series update
Cubs prospect Lou Montanez went 2-for-4, including an RBI single in the seventh, in Puerto Rico’s 4-3 loss Friday to the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Series. The Dominican rallied to score three runs in the ninth for the win. Welington Castillo struck out to start the ninth, but the next two batters walked and both scored on Esteban German’s triple. German then scored on a ground out. In the other game, Mexico beat Venezuela, 7-3.
On Saturday, Mexico (2-1) plays the Dominican Republic (2-1) and Puerto Rico (1-2) will play Venezuela (1-2).
