Leones and Gallos still alive in baseball play-offs

LEONES de Industriales and Gallos de Sancti Spíritus came out on top on Wednesday as hosts in the fifth game of their respective ties, and held on to reach the quarter-finals of the 63rd National Baseball Series.

At the Estadio Latinoamericano, the team led by Guillermo Carmona overcame a three-run deficit from the first inning to finally beat Santiago de Cuba 6×4 and send the duel back to Guillermón Moncada Park, where they will meet again next Friday.

The Blue Jays scored four runs in the second inning, combining four hits with one error, to make the score 5×3 in their favour. The sixth run came on a home run by Yasmani Tomás.

Fourth win for Carlos Manuel Cuesta, who held off the Avispas indomitas attack and pitched a solid three innings of relief with just two hits allowed. Third save for Leodán Reyes.

Santiago exhibited remarkable unproductiveness with wood at the ready, leaving 13 runners in circulation. The score is now 3-2 in favour of the Wasps.

Meanwhile, at the José Antonio Huelga Park, the Gallos espirituanos relied on two excellent relief pitchers to defeat Pinar del Río 3×1.

The usual middle reliever Yankiel Mauri opened, who for 7.0 innings limited the Vegueros’ offensive spending to three hits. And to his rescue came the closer Yanielkis Duardo to take charge of the last two chapters, in which he tolerated just a single, to earn his tenth save of the season.

Outfielder Dunieski Barroso, 4-3 with a tow, was the standout hitter for the home side.

The game will return to Pinar del Río’s Capitán San Luis stadium on Friday. The Vegueros lead 3-2.

And the monarch exponent Las Tunas got rid of Ciego de Ávila 8×3, supported by the swing of their third bat and starter Yosvani Alarcón, author of four hits in five innings, with a double and two foul balls to the plate.

This battle will also resume on Friday at the Julio Antonio Mella stadium in Tuna, with the locals ahead 3-2.

Finally, host Matanzas beat Granma 4×1 at its Victoria de Girón stadium, with the second win for reinstated left-hander Yoanni Yera, who pitched six innings of three-hit ball. Noelvis Entenza’s third save.

On the offensive side, the Matanzas Crocodile team’s top hitter was Adrián Pérez, who hit 4-2, with a triple and a tow.

Both teams will play their fifth game on Thursday. The match shows an advantage for the Yumurinos (3-1).
