12/23 Winter league update
Bryan LaHair keeps on hitting. LaHair hit a pair of solo homers, including a tie-breaking blast in the eighth inning, to help Magallanes beat La Guaira, 5-4, in Venezuelan Winter League play on Thursday. LaHair, who led all Minor Leaguers in 2011 with 38 homers, now has 14 in Venezuela. Cubs prospect Rebel Ridling went 2-for-3 in the game.
