Santo Domingo Dominican Republic. January 29, 2022 (www.CBPC.com).- An inspired day for Venezuelan pitching, Yohander Manuel Méndez led from the mound the five-run shutout against the Mexican team. Méndez and four relievers combined to weave the shutout on this second day of activities of the Caribbean Series.
This triumph allows Venezuela to put its record at one won and one lost, while this was the second defeat for Mexico.
Venezuela attacked quickly, a two-run double by Danry Vázquez, a board through the middle at the end of the third episode, made it 2-0 in favor of the Venezuelan squad. Immediately Balbino Fuenmayor with a single to center brought the third run, which marked the departure of Mexican starter Manny Barreda who could not shine on the pitching mound.
Venezuela pressed in the fifth inning, Pablo Sandoval received reliever Irwin Delgado with a single to center and then scored four-nil thanks to unstoppable producer to center Gabriel Noriega. In the sixth, ‘Kung Fu Panda’ Pablo Sandoval bounced it through the right field for the final five to nil.
Mexico on offense could not do much, only four hits could connect throughout the game. Venezuela’s pitching suffocated the Aztec offensive and did not allow them freedom to take the victory.
