2/7 Caribbean series update
Lou Montanez went 2-for-4, scored two runs and hit a RBI single in the first in Puerto Rico’s 7-6 victory Sunday over Mexico in the Caribbean Series, being played in Puerto Rico. Montanez will be in the Cubs’ Spring Training camp as a non-roster invitee. Cubs prospect Marco Carillo gave up one hit, a RBI single in the fifth, in one-third of an inning in relief for Mexico. In Sunday’s other game, Venezuela blanked the Dominican Republic, 3-0. On Monday, Venezuela (2-3) plays Mexico (3-2) and Puerto Rico (3-2) has a rematch against the Dominican Republic (2-3).
