The 64th Annual Caribbean Series started yesterday Friday with the following six teams: Columbia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
If you missed any of the games, here is a quick recap;
Panama 3, Puerto Rico 2
Panama used a pair of late-game rallies to walk-off with a 3-2 win in the tournament opener. Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the eighth, Olmo Rosario hit a game-tying homer and Christian Bethancourt later added a go-ahead RBI single. Panama, however, let that lead slip away when it booted a potential game-ending double play in the top of the ninth, allowing the tying run to score from third. That set the stage for Edgar Munoz, who roped a walk-off RBI single to end it.
Colombia 6, Venezuela 1
Colombia scored four times in the top of the third inning, courtesy of three run-scoring singles, including a two-run single to right field by Reynaldo Rodriguez. Colombia added solo runs in the fourth and eighth innings to provide more than enough run support for the club’s pitching staff — Eduar Lopez (1 2/3 innings), Luis Moreno (1 1/3), Sugar Ray Marimon (one), Francisco Jimenez (two), Rodrigo Benoit (2/3), Ronald Ramirez (1 1/3) and Donald Goodson (one) combined to shut down Venezuela’s bats, yielding just one run on four hits.
Dominican Republic 3, Mexico 2
A two-run seventh inning and an outstanding performance from the bullpen lifted the Dominican Republic past Mexico. Left-hander Tyler Alexander started and gave up two runs on five hits over three innings, but the D.R. relief corps rose to the occasion, with Frank Garces (two innings), Jenrry Mejia (2/3), Luis Castillo (1/3), Jhan Mariñez (2/3), Reymin Guduan (1/3), Fernando Abad (one) and Juan Minaya (one) combined to shut out Mexico on four hits the rest of the way.
These are the standings as of today Saturday:
Dominican Republic: 1-0
Puerto Rico: 0-1
