Cuba Vs Puerto Rico

on

By Ismael Nuñez

The two countries that are said to be, “The two wings from the same bird” battled yesterday for a must needed win.

Both teams were winless! Both were determined to stay alive in the 2015 Caribbean World Series. Both Cuba and Puerto Rico stood toe to toe throughout the game.

Both teams played good defense and they both had good relief work from the bullpen that’s why the game remained 2-2 to the bottom of the tenth inning.

Cuba took full advantage of Puerto Rico’s mistakes and team PR stranded 14 batters to blow several good scoring opportunities.

Cuba reached base on an error by the third baseman allowing the runner to get into scoring position at second base. Then came the decisive blow, the winning hit a single driving in the winning run! The sold out crowd at Hiram Bithorn stadium did not leave until this fat lady sang and the music was not to Puerto Rico’s liking.

Final Score Cuba 3 Puerto Rico 2! Cuba has one win two losses. Puerto Rico now has three losses, does that mean it’s over for the host country?
