10/20 Winter ball update – UPDATE
Bryan LaHair is en fuego. He belted his sixth home run for Magallanes in Venezuelan Winter League play Wednesday. LaHair, who hit 38 homers for Triple-A Iowa this year, was batting .357. Meanwhile, Cubs prospect Marwin Gonzalez went 1-for-5 with three RBIs in Caracas’ 12-3 win over Caribes.
In Mexico, Hung-Wen Chen picked up his second save with a perfect ninth as Mazatlan beat Mexicali, 9-6.
* Also, outfielder Brett Jackson will play for Team USA in the Pan Am games in Mexico. The U.S. squad faces the Dominican Republic team Thursday. Jackson had to come out of his last game during the World Cup because of a minor foot injury.
