The Peninsula Pilots needed a hit in this June 1991 game and Roberto Del Pozo delivered it.

In the top of the 10th inning, Del Pozo knocked a single to center that scored the go-ahead run in an eventual 5-3 Peninsula win.

Del Pozo got that RBI in his fourth season as a pro. It was also his last season. He never made AA.

Del Pozo's career began in 1988, signed by the Mariners as a free agent out of his native Dominican Republic. His name has also been constructed Roberto DelPozo.

He played his first season between short-season Bellingham and the rookie Gulf Coast League. In 29 total games, he hit .167.

Del Pozo returned to the Gulf Coast League for 1989. In 51 games there, he hit .298. He hit two home runs, with 27 RBI.

For 1990, Del Pozo moved to high-A San Bernardino. In 76 games there, the infielder hit .252. He then stayed at high-A in 1991, playing at Peninsula.

Del Pozo helped manufacture a run early in a June game with a single. He picked up two hits in a game earlier that month. Overall, Del Pozo hit .237 in 61 games for the Pilots. It was his final season as a pro.
