In today's Winter Ball Roundup: Crawford goes hitless again, but shows patience. Panik slugs a three bagger for the Scorps. Rosin and Bradley earn holds out of the 'pen. Sanchez starts a new streak in Venezuela.

Games played Monday, November 14.

ARIZONA FALL LEAGUE - Scottsdale 6, Salt River 5

Brandon Crawford went hitless for the second straight day Monday, going 0-for-2 with two walks and a run. Brandon's average crept back under the .300 mark, down to .292 (24-for-81). It was good to see Crawford show some patience at the plate, however. He had only drawn three walks while whiffing 18 times coming into the game.

Joe Panik plated two runs when he slugged his first triple of the AFL season. The three-bagger was Panik's only hit in three trips to the plate, but it was enough to hold his average steady at .321 (27-for-84).

Seth Rosin earned his third hold, although he did get knocked around for two runs on three hits and a walk while retiring only five batters. The 23-year-old's ERA climbed a bit, but is still a pretty solid at 2.13.

Ryan Bradley also earned a hold, his first for the Scorps. Bradley pitched one innning of shutout ball, allowing just one hit.
