For both Leones del Caracas and Cardenales de Lara, this Sunday’s duel may be decisive in their aspirations to reach the Grand Final, which is why it was crucial for both of them to go out through the big door.

In this context, the right-hander Williams Pérez displays a great job for a space of 5 complete innings, a journey in which he yields only 2 hits, a pair of walks to which he includes 4 fans.

For his part, the Caracas starter, Ronald Herrera, does not badly also in 5 innings, only that he blinks in the second section. There Lara makes a 3-score rally that begins with Ramón Flores receiving a base on balls, steps on the plate after a double by Juniel Querecuto, he and Ildemaro Vargas also arrive at the plate after a hit by Gorkys Hernández.

In the seventh they add 1 more, arrival in the legs of Hernández after a deflected pitch by reliever Eduardo Paredes, an action in which Flores also receives a ticket.

Lions tries to return but …

With the intention of giving shape and substance to the eventual victory, the home team produced another in the low of that section number 8, there Jecksson Flores scores after a ground ball to Alberto Callaspo’s initial.

By the ninth, the bolt Vicente Campos gets up to the nose and withdraws the episode by fast track to secure the award and to credit his second rescue, he maintains his immaculate effectiveness. The victory goes to Pérez’s account (2-0, 0.00).
