The ORKAS offense managed just one run on two hits in a 1-6 loss against the HOUSTON ASTROS in game two of the season. After their successful start into their debut year in the Liga Paralela the BBC scored their lone run in the ninth, with the Major League affiliate already leading 6-0.
The Venezuelan Alexis Fumero, who pitched for CD PAMPLONA this summer, went five innings, allowing just three hits, one run and a base on balls, while striking out three. The relievers Josehin Suarez and Marcanos then allowed five more runs and the ORKAS had no chance to come back.
On Friday former Dutch Hoofdklasse pitcher Nelson Santander is stepping on the mound to face ARAGUA in the home opener for the ORKAS.
