Given that Leones del Caracas and Caribes de Anzoátegui have so far had the most home run offenses in the 2022/2023 season, Duel of hits is planned this Sunday and in fact this is what will happen at the Alfonso “Chico” Carrasquel Stadium in Puerto La Cruz.
Both teams scored in the 1st inningthe long-haired through Oswaldo Arcia in his fourth home run, while the aborigines did it when Willians Astudillo hit for a double play, a situation that Niuman Romero took advantage of to step into the pentagon. But in the next section comes the chance for the locals to hold a rally that determines the fate of the battle.
There were 5 starts with a single by Balbino Fuenmayor, home run for Luis Sardiñas, hit by José Fernández (his first in the League), walk by Romero and home run by Herlis Rodríguez; With all the damage, 4 points go to the records of the bad visitor starter, Wilkel Hernández (0-1, 12-27).
This harvest was not fully exploited by the Caribbean initiatorRyan Zimmerman, who in 3.1 innings allowed 3 hits, 2 runs, gave up 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. On the contrary, his immediate replacement, Manuel Cachutt (1-0, 0.00) took advantage to the offensive support and works perfectly in 1.2 stretches of 2 pass fueros.
Likewise, although some of the arms used by Ramón Borrego were weak, others also responded to secure the award. Liarvis Breto (1) Loiger Padrón (0.2) who was penalized with 3 hits and 3 scores, José Marco Torres (1.1) and Andrés Sotillet (1) who allowed another consecutive streak but saved the first time, improved to a final score of 8×6.
