Fall/Winter League Roundup: Castillo and Aguilas eliminated in a marathon game


We continue our weekly roundups of the Fall and Winter Leagues, highlighting performances from players in the Red Sox organization. Coverage will continue every Monday into January. For the full list of Red Sox prospects participating in these leagues, check out our Fall & Winter Leagues page, which will be updated continuously through January. This week's roundup covers January 13 through 19.

Dominican Winter League
Rusney Castillo (pictured) continued to play for Aguilas, but his team fell short in a classic tiebreak game against Licey. The game lasted over 6 hours and ended with Licey celebrating a walkoff win in the bottom of the 13th. It was a solid week for Castillo as he went 6 for 22 with three runs, four RBI, and a walk. 

Licey will play Este in the championship series, but no Red Sox prospects are expected to play. Marco Hernandez was on the Licey roster earlier this winter but he has not played in a month, while Jhon Nunez will play for Este but he was just traded last week to Detroit for Matt Hall. 

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League (Puerto Rico)
The week began with Josh Tobias and Carolina getting eliminated by Mayaguez, as Tobias went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in the loss. Mayaguez and Santurce are in the middle of the final series, with Santurce holding a 3-1 lead. 

Australian Baseball League
Colin Willis continues to fill up the stat sheet in Australia, going 7 for 13 with two doubles, four walks, four RBI, five runs, and he even stole his seventh base for good measure. The 27-year-old outfielder is now leading the league in batting average (.425) and on-base percentage (.527) as he tries to lead Melbourne to a top seed in the playoffs.

Mexican Pacific League
Konner Wade has not appeared in a game in the postseason but his Mazatlan team is one win away from advancing to the finals. Mazatlan is playing Obregon in a Game Seven on Monday night.
