The 2 Wings Of The Same Bird, Puerto Rico & Cuba Lose Again

on

Puerto Rico’s chances of reaching the finals in the Caribbean Series is at risk after losing yesterday for the second time, this time against Mexico.

The Puerto Rican team again had poor offence and lost to Mexico by a score of 3-2 before 8,000 fans at the Hiram Bithorn stadium.

Apparently the presence of the great figures of the ‘Dream Team’ of 1995 that were all there for an enthusuastic pregame ceremony could inject the offensive energy that team Puerto Rico needed. The team missed several chances to produce more runs and are now with their backs against the wall in this competition.

Cuba also lost their second straight game this time against the strong offense of the Dominican Republic by a score of 6-1.

Puerto Rico and Cuba are now 0-2. They are the only winless teams in this tournament. They both face each other tonight before a sold out crowd. The loser of tonight’s game can surely say say goodbye to the tournament as they would have any little chance of going to the next playoff round.

If Puerto Rico, the host of this years Caribbean Series were to lose tonight against Cuba there only chance to advance to Saturday’s semifinal would be for the Dominican Republic to lose their next two games and Puerto Rico would have to beat them to tie them in the standings at 1-3.

Mexico, with the victory, improved to 2-0 and clinched a semifinal.
