With a 6-3 victory over Sancti Spíritus, the Pinar del Río team maintained its unbeaten pace in the seven sub-series held and the leadership in the Cuban baseball tournament.

Vegueros was one of the five teams that decided the weekly matchup on Sunday, for which they counted on the pitching duo integrated by the winner Branlis Rodríguez (7.2IP, 7H, 7K, 4BB) and Orisbel Borges, who saved his sixth game.

At bat, Yaser Julio González drove in a pair of runs with his thirteenth home run of the season, which also helped him to tie Alfredo Despaigne at the top of the list of the highest producers of round-trippers.

The victory left the Pinareños two and a half games ahead of Las Tunas, which beat Villa Clara 18-2, a game concluded by super KO in five innings covered by the pitcher Alejandro Meneses (2CL, 6H).

Leñadores produced 16 hits and its attack was led by Roberto Baldoquín (3-3, a triple and four RBIs) and Denis Peña (2-2, double and three RBIs), while the only home run of the game was in a lost cause to the account of Leandro Turiño.

In a game decided by a controversial play at home plate that caused the emptying of both benches, Camagüey left Cienfuegos in the field by 7-6 to move up to third place shared with Granma, victim of Artemisa (7-5).

Industriales said goodbye to Guantanamo with an 8-4 victory, while La Isla and Holguin, who had lost their respective series, signed Sunday successes by 10-9 and 12-3 against Matanzas and Mayabeque, respectively.

In a rain-delayed game, Santiago de Cuba and Ciego de Avila sealed a no-decision when the Tigres (5-3) were ahead, but the Wasps were looking to complete the only possible sweep this week.

Tomorrow is a transfer day and on Tuesday the tournament resumes, which will begin to cover the second half of the regular schedule with the incentive that there are still no teams that have been left behind in the standings.

Pinar del Río holds the lead with a 26-11 record, followed by Las Tunas (21-11), Granma and Camagüey (21-16), Ciego de Avila and Santiago de Cuba (20-16), Industriales (20-17).

Then come Artemisa (19-18), Sancti Spíritus and Matanzas (17-20), Villa Clara (16-21), La Isla (13-19), Mayabeque and Guantánamo and Holguín (15-22) and Cienfuegos (14-22).
