Mother’s Day has left even more tension in ordering the Cuban baseball championship as a gift, to the point that the eleventh-place finisher is only three games away from the top.
Santiago de Cuba retained the half line lead despite losing 4-8 to Las Tunas. Hudier Rondon was the deadliest lumberjack with a pair of triples and three RBIs.
Those who have benefited the most from this sub-series are Mayabeque and Holguin, located next to Matanzas, a polyunite behind the Indomitable.
The Huracanes have already secured their match against Artemisa by beating them for the third time in a row. The 12–9 list included Dennis Laza (6–3, HR, 5CI), Raudelyn Legra (6–4, HR, 4CI) and Rangel Ramos (5–4, double and 2CI) and Marlon Vega, despite a poor opening (6.0INN, 8CL, 10H, 4K and 5BB) marked success with the seventh save of Adrian Sosa.
The Cubs split with Camaguey and maintained one of the best records in the last ten games, winning seven games. First they won 9-1 with a four-decision undefeated Michel Cabrera (3.1INN, 1CL, 3H, 1K) and three trailers Annie Fonseca, in the clash Edilse Silva hit a home run and has 198 points for life.
The Bulls then hit back with a tight 1-0 score, driven by Alexander Ayala.
Along the same route as the whiteout, Leopardos de Villa Clara beat Leones de Industriales 8-0 and three games were decided by grout. Javier Mirabal worked completely (9.0 INN, 6H and K) and did not deliver a single ticket. Leandro Turinho (2CI) and Mailon Thomas Alonso, with the troika that pushed the troika, led the attack on the sugar producers.
With a ten-round package in the fifth inning, La Isla managed to defeat Pinar del Río 11–9. The highlights were Franky Quintana’s eighth save and Yasmani Viera’s five RBIs.
Los Gallos scored Matanzas and missed the third bite in a row, now 7-2. It was the sixth win for José Grandales, co-leader with Yunieschi Garcia (ART), after performing in seven chapters (1CL, 7H, 5K and 3BB).
In the other matches on Sunday, all played in the morning, Cienfuegos beat Ciego de Ávila 4–3, while Granma beat Guantanamo 7–4.
