The Cardenales de Lara defeated the Tigres de Aragua 7-2 to eliminate them from the competition, and managed to stay in the fight for a place in the Final Series of the Venezuelan Baseball League.
One of the finalists will be defined between three contestants, in the last day of the semifinal round of all against all.
Williams Pérez pitched six innings of just one run and five hits to earn the victory. The loss went to David Ramos after allowing three runs and six hits in five and two-thirds innings.
Major League Baseball player Odúbel Herrera went 3-for-5 with a run scored and one produced, Hernán Pérez went 2-for-4 with an RBI and Kennys Vargas went 2-for-3 with an RBI to stand out in the Cardinals’ offense , who have now won four straight games.
In Caracas, Harold Castro hit a solo shot in the bottom of the 10th inning to put the Navegantes del Magallanes on the field, and the Leones del Caracas posted a 3-2 victory, securing a first-place finish round robin to be in the final.
With these results, the Tiburones de La Guiara, who rested this Friday, the Cardenales and Navegantes will fight to be the second finalist of the tournament during the last day of the semifinals.
A victory over the Tigres de Aragua is enough for the Tiburones de la Guaira to confirm their place in the Final Series. If they lose, the winner of the Cardinals-Navigators game would force a tiebreaker against the Sharks on Sunday.
The Leones have secured their spot and lead the round robin with a 10-6 record, followed by the Sharks (8-7), Cardinals (7-8), Navigators (7-8), and the already eliminated Tigers (6-9).
