Vegueros of Pinar del Río managed a 3-2 victory over the Santurce Crabbers of Puerto Rico, in the third day's journey from the Caribbean Series 2015, at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan.
"It was a game that meant a lot, which was practically deciding qualifying," said Cuban manager Alfonso Urquiola. "Our team did all well today. We left the hit at the right time. We went and played flawlessly effective defense and pitching very well behaved."
Pinar del Río part in the tournament with 16 reinforcements from other provinces. However, until now had only accumulated losses.
The Golden homer Santos came off reliever Fernando Cabrera after Frank Morejon hit a line for third.
Santos was replaced after running for Yosvani Alarcón, who scored the decisive run and kept alive Cubans. Puerto Ricans life will be played on Thursday against the Gigantes del Cibao in the Dominican Republic.
In the ninth local had a great opportunity to break ties when Yadiel Rivera, batting with the bases loaded, struck at the launches of Hector Mendoza, removing opportunities for Puerto Ricans.
