LVBP: Summary October 28: Eagles sweep, Caribbean whites and the rains do not stop

The rain continues to be the main protagonist in recent days in the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League, and the day of Friday, October 28 was no exception. Despite the fact that we had three results yesterday, only one of the matches could be played normally, and it ended in the stipulated nine innings.

In said match, the Caribes de Anzoátegui whitewashed the Navegantes del Magallanes in Valencia, by a score of 5-0, led by an excellent performance by pitcher Omar Bencomo Jr, who had a great job of 5.0 innings without runs, allowing only two unstoppable, and generating up to three double plays.

Bencomo received the support of a great relief from Caribes. Elvin Liriano, Loiger Padrón, Jesús Balaguer and José Torres pitched one inning each, and combined to receive only two hits, and to prescribe seven strikeouts, supporting the great work of the starter.

With the wood, the spark plugs for Caribes were Andruw Monasterio and Asdrúbal Cabrera, who went 3-4. Willians Astudillo also had a good night, going 3-2. Balbino Fuenmayor went 4-1, but his unstoppable brought two lines to the rubber, so he ended up being important in the development of the match.

Eagles are imposed twice:

The Eagles of Zulia and the Tigers of Aragua they were able to complete two games despite the intense rain that fell on the city of Maracaibo, and both left a favorable result for the local team, which little by little is beginning to recover from the two initial defeats.

The first meeting was the resumption of the previous day’s game, which had been stopped by rain in the bottom of the seventh inning with the score tied at two runs. The Eagles attacked with everything as soon as the match resumed, scoring five runs in the seventh, thus securing victory in a match that ended 7-3 in favor of the Raptors.

Ismael Guillón, who threw only two thirds, took the victory of the match, while Silvino Bracho made his debut in the season saving his first game of the year. On offense, Héctor Sánchez had the hit that started the rally in the seventh inning, driving in two runs.

The second match lasted only the five regulation innings, as the rain reappeared heavily on the field of play at the Luis Aparicio “El Grande” Stadium. Despite the rain, the local bats responded again, and gave the second victory of the night to the Águilas del Zulia.

José Herrera and Wilin Rosario stood out for the locals, driving two lines each. The victory went to Nomar Rojas, who had an inning of work, while Osmer Morales, starter for the Tigres, took the loss.

The rains do not stop

The action continues to be paralyzed in Caracas and Barquisimeto, since the rain again prevented the matches between Leones vs. Tiburones, and Bravos vs. Cardenales from being played. Both games were supposed to be the second of a mini series between these teams, however, not a single match of both series could be played.

The game in Barquisimeto had only one inning of action, with Williams Pérez on the mound for the crepusculars, and Henry Centeno doing the same for the insulares. However, the rain quickly set in, and the game had to be postponed.

This is how they go:
