Escogido Breaks Skid; One Victory from Series del Caribe

Escogido (4-3) 5 Aguilas (3-4) 2

The day did not start well for Escogido as an error by Andy Dirks and a balk allowed Aguilas to score two quick unearned runs.  The Leones took advantage of a couple fielding errors by Aguilas to score single runs in the second and third to tie it.  Julio Lugo got the RBI single that drove in the go ahead run in the fifth, and Fernando Tatis got his second RBI ground out of the day to give Escogido a 2-run lead.  Tatis also tripled in the eighth to later score on a Pedro Florimon sacrifice fly.  Four different pitchers came out of the Leones pen to hold Aguilas in check the rest of the game.  Fernando Rodney pitched the last inning, striking out three to pick up the save, his fifth of the playoffs.
