Mexico Defeats Cuba In First game Of Caribbean Series


Cuba and Mexico played the first game of the 2015 Caribbean Series under the afternoon sun at Hiram Bithorn stadium in San Juan and both played a hot pitching game. Tied 1 – 1, but in baseball there has to be a winner and a loser. They both played a tight game. It was a pitchers duel and in the 7th inning, Mexico broke the tie and thus winning by a score of 2-1.

Cuba, took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning off Tomateros starter, Anthony Vazquez. Yulieski Gourriel, with one out, was hit by a pitch, stole second and, scored on a hit by, Frederich Cepeda.

Mexico copied that recipe and scored their run to tie the game 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth. The game moved on with solid pitching. Until the seventh when Mexico scored the winning run off Cuban reliever, Martinez.
