Mazatlan. The Águilas Cibaeñas, representatives of the Dominican Republic, claimed their first victory in the protection of the title in the Caribbean Series, beating the Puerto Rican Criollos de Caguas 5-1, whereas the Federales de Chiriquí from Panama defeated the Caribs of Anzoátegui of Venezuela.
The Dominicans had the bat lit by Juan Lagares, who hit a homer in the third inning with two males on the bases to show the scoreboard (3-1).
On the following roll, Lagares once more, with a single to middle area, produced two runs (5-1) to provide the Quisqueyanos extra benefit, who celebrated loudly earlier than the small viewers on the Teodoro Mariscal stadium in Mazatlán.
Pitcher Carlos Tunami Martínez took the victory and Luis Medina took the backhand.
Within the first recreation, the Chiriquí Federales de Panamá, a group made to play the event when their house season was canceled as a result of pandemic, fabricated a four-score assault in the highest of the sixth inning, en path to a victory by 6-Three over the Caribs of Anzoátegui.
Reliever Austin Warner (1-0) accomplished 2 2/Three innings of three hits with out permitting a landing to say the win. Mayckol Guaipe (0-1), shaken with three runs and three hits in his reduction, took the loss.
In the course of the recreation, three coaches from Panama suffered a theft of $ 560 in the group’s locker room, stated David Salayandía, president of the Skilled Baseball League of that nation. The organizing committee reported that it put the case in the arms of the native police.
