Six teams are tied for first place in the Cuban baseball season at the end of today’s second sub-series, whose most emotional game came in the Hispanics, where Gallos threatened to end the score 5-0.
In the colossus, Cerro Industriales got rid of the cleanliness, leaving the pitch to a revitalized Spirituans 2-1 with a hit shot from Yamil Rivalta with one out left for extra innings against the pitches of underdog Yunelkis Duardo.
Starter Michael Taylor (7.1INN, 1CL, 8H, 5K and 1BB) left the decision in the hands of Andy Vargas when the visitors threatened two on-base and one strikeout in the eighth round (holy sacrifice), but Matador de los Azules was in control and deserved a success that allowed his team to break a five-game losing streak.
In this Friday game, Frederick Zepeda hit his 436 tubi and was one step away from a draw with Michel Henriquez, becoming the best two-base hit maker in national series history.
Miguel A. Neira (7.0 INN, 1CL, 4H, 8K and 3BB) also signed a quality start for the team from Sancti Spiritus.
In Camagüey, the Bulls took advantage of the good work of three pitchers and beat Cienfuegos 7-2.

Leonardo Casado (3-2) and Rafael Alvarez (3-1) drove two runs each.
With the same marker, Matanzas beat Holguin. At bat, Moises Esquerres (5-2) and Ariel Sanchez (5-3) scored two doubles and went two rounds each to lead the Crocodiles’ offense.
It is amazing that Andris Pérez, called up to the U-23 team for the match against Russia and the Games in Alba, continues to play in the National Series and is the only one who did not join the team. In this encounter, Denis Quesada covered the entire route (9.0 INN, 1CL, 8H, 2K and 3BB).

In the premises of Guillermont Moncada, the hosts beat Pinar del Río 15-3. It was Yoandri Montero’s third win (3.2I NN, 2CL, 3H), and Osdey Silva continues to fire wood, driving nine runs and hitting a couple of home runs, leading both departments with 20 and 7 respectively. .
In terms of RBIs, it’s a good crop to play, but they are a far cry from the 12 that Fernando Hernandez de Vegueros chartered against Forestales on 25 December 1988 and Alexei Bell, also from Santiago, against Camaguey on 3 November 2009. .
With an eight-round package in the ninth round, Tigres de Ciego de Avila dominated a particular match against Villa Clara. In Game 5 they went 13-2. There were home runs by Oswaldo Vasquez and Jonathan Breedon, each of whom drove two runs.
