Dave Sappelt continued his hot stretch for the Bravos de Margarita of the Venezuelan league, leading his side to a 9-0 win Wednesday. The Cubs outfielder went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, a walk, an RBI and three runs scored.

After striking out in his first at-bat, he singled in the fourth inning and scored on a double one batter later. He forced a walk the sixth and would eventually score from second.

Sappelt then led off the eighth with a home run to left and doubled in the ninth, finishing a triple away from the cycle for the second time in the last week. On the winter, Sappelt is batting .314/.364/.514 with 3 home runs, 14 runs scored and 9 RBI.

Other highlights from around the Caribbean:

Jeffry Antigua pitched 1.1 innings, allowing no hits and no runs in a Toros win in the Dominican league.

Esmailin Caridad pitched a scoreless eighth inning for the Yaquis de Obregon of the Mexican league.
