Panama for remaining undefeated in the Caribbean baseball Series

The duel between the Canaleros (3-0) and Puerto Ricans (3-1) will close the penultimate date of the winter competition, which for the first time is hosted in a Major League stadium.

Before that, Curacao (1-2) will face Nicaragua (0-3) and Venezuela (2-1) against Mexico (1-3), while Dominicans Tigres de Licey (2-2) will rest.

The Federales collected victories against Curacao (7-3), Mexico (4-3) and Nicaragua (6-3), a trio that sits at the bottom of the order.

The Puerto Rican club ended their matches with success against the Pinoleros (5-2), Mexicans (2-0) and Morochos (6-2), while losing against the Dominicans (2-5).

Sunday’s match brought victories for Criollos de Caguas against Tiburones de la Guaira by 6-2, the aforementioned victory for Chiriquí against Nicaragua and concluded with the first victory for Naranjeros de Hermosillo in the tournament.

The Mexicans defeated Licey 9-1, a victory that saved the winners from the final elimination, although they remained outside the qualifying zone.

Naranjeros got the win in the third inning when Aaron Altherr drove in three runs with a double that found the bases loaded and then scored on an RBI single on Bobby Bradley’s infield hit.

That package determined the departure of starter and loser Andy Otero without completing the third part of the game, a situation that forced the Dominican bullpen to work more than expected.

The exact opposite happened with the Mexicans’ pitching, whose starter Jeff Kinley (6.0 IP, 1CL, 6H, 1K) recorded a quality start that was rewarded with a win.

The Mexicans expanded on a home run by third baseman Agustín Murillo in the sixth section and finished the final two innings with two runs in each of them.

Panama (3-0) leads the ranking followed by Puerto Rico (3-1), Dominican Republic (2-2), Venezuela (2-1), Curacao (1-2), Mexico (1-3) and Nicaragua (0-3).
