Industriales, the new Cuban baseball champion
Arleys Sanchez pitched seven innings and allowed seven hits.
The Blues did what many thought it would be impossible: win two games in a row at the Sandino Stadium in Villa Clara.
Brian Ruiz came in on relief on the top of eigth inning for the Blues, and Yandrys Canto connected a home run with Ariel Pestano and Ramon Lunar on base for the Naranjas. The game was now tied 5-5. Alexei Chorot relieved Brian Ruiz and Joan Socarr├ís relieved him.
Two more Industriales runs came home on the top of the tenth inning, and the Naranjas did not score in the bottom.
Joan Socarr├ís was the winner. He did an excellent job as a reliever. He went two and a third innings ans struck out five. Misael Siverio was the loser.
The Industriales proved, without a doubt, that they were the better team.
Congratulations to the Blue Lions of German Mesa.
