Ratings of the Dominican players in the final of the playoffs against Venezuela

Thanks to an explosive fourth episode led by Goris, Valerio and Núñez, the Dominicans were able to overcome an exit under Radhamés Liz

RepúDominican Republic defeated the Venezuelan team 8 laps by 5, to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, after recovering from a three-run deficit thanks to the Venezuelan offense attacking Dominican starter Radhamés Liz early.

The big inning for the Dominicans was the fourth, where they could score six runs where they attacked relievers Eduardo Paredes, Harold Chirinos and Danny Rondón. ESPN Digital qualifies the performance of the Dominican players.

Charlie Valerio (C) 9/10

The national team catcher did his best to keep starter Radhamés Liz calm and led the relievers to dominate opposing bats. In addition, he was in charge of producing runs in the fourth, and was an important part of that offensive explosion, and in that same episode he saved the Dominican Republic from greater problems by taking one out after a bunt. The mask was one of the team’s most pleasant surprises since the pre-Olympic.

Juan Francisco (1B) 8.5 / 10

The “Caballo de la Patria” did not hit a home run but held up the defense well in the first game and had two hits including a double.

Gustavo Nunez (2B) 8.5 / 10

Another big man in the fourth inning with two RBIs, finishing 3-1 with one scored.

Ramon Torres (SS) 7.5 / 10

Going 4-1 with a run scored and an RBI, he also had a good game on defense.

Diego Goris (3B) 8.5 / 10

Goris was one of the best players of the pre-Olympic past and did the same in the final against Venezuela finishing 4-2 with a double, a run scored and an RBI.

Julio Rodríguez (RF) 7/10

Along with Bonifacio, they were the only ones who did not connect as unstoppable, but the Seattle Mariners prospect stood out with great defense in right field including one of the best plays of the tournament. Passed despite going 3-0 with a ticket.

Emilio Bonifacio (CF) 7.5 / 10

“El Boni” managed to get on base with a walk, he was able to score and drive a lap with a sacrifice fly, he seems to have recovered from his annoyances.

Johan Mieses (LF) 7/10

One of the great surprise bats of the Dominican Republic, although it was not his best game, he could finish 4-1 with one scored.

Melky Cabrera (DH) 8/10

The veteran responded in the best moment with his first homer of the phase, driving in two laps with his only hit, which started the response for the Dominicans.

Radhames Liz (SP) 5/10

Unfortunately it was not a good start for the veteran allowing a three-run homer in the second inning where the Venezuelans took the lead. From the start of the game, he did not look very in control of his shooting and although he struck out three, he allowed the same number of walks in just 2 2/3 innings.

Jhan Mariñez (RP) 7.5 / 10

The Dominican entered to put order in the house and did so with two thirds of blank entries where he only allowed one ticket.

Darío Alvarez (RP) 8/10

Following the same plan of the previous game against Venezuela, he entered the right to keep the Dominican team in the fight and he achieved it with a blank entry.

Luis Felipe Castillo (RP) 7.5 / 10

With the same script, it was Luis Felipe Castillo’s turn, who was able to pitch for two innings and two-thirds of two hits, an earned run and two strikeouts.

Marcos Diplán (RP) 8/10

He entered as a coach for Jairo Asencio and more than met with a blank entry.

Jairo Asencio (RP) 7/10

Although the veteran was able to finish the job, he couldn’t appear dominant as a closer, allowing two hits and one run. Fortunately, the Dominican offense gained a considerable advantage and did not cause major damage.
