Cuba travels to Tokyo with a VIP ticket to the Baseball Classic

Taichung, Chinese Taipei, Mar 12 (Prensa Latina) When numerous experts and followers were preparing its funeral, Cuba was reborn like a Phoenix bird and will travel to Tokyo, Japan, as the new leader of group A of the World Baseball Classic, which also keeps Italy alive today.

With a pinch of dust from the concurrent chance, the team from the largest of the Antilles did its job and absolutely all the outcomes worked in their favor to advance to the quarterfinals and, incidentally, evade the Japanese “Dream Team” , king of a key B who is still looking for its second survivor.

After losing to the Netherlands (2-4) and Italy (4-6), the Caribbean team looked immense in their successes over Panama (13-4) and Chinese Taipei (7-1) on Sunday, whose ticket and segment dominance fell with the last out of an extremely close playoff.

Finally, the Italians passed over the Dutch (7-1), the five-fold draw took place with 2-2, and the troop of manager Armando Johnson took the biggest piece of the cake, after establishing the system to break equalities and define the seats.

Cuba closed with a quotient of 0.139 (15 touchdowns allowed and 108 outs), above its companion Italy (17-108/157), the Netherlands (19-102/0.186), Panama (21-105/0.200) and the local Chinese Taipei (31-105/0.295), who will have to fight for his ticket to the next edition of the contest.

Exclusively to Prensa Latina, the pitcher from the island Miguel Romero, of the Oakland Athletics, expressed that “the team looks good to face the remainder of the tournament, with the boys focused and ready to win.”

“We are very happy. We are going to go well, because there is a desire to win and get to Miami”, stated the same pitcher Onelkis García about the possibility of continuing to the venue of the semifinals scheduled in the United States.

With a message of “good luck in Tokyo”, the Intercontinental Stadium and the inhabitants of Taichung bid farewell to the Caribbean and Europeans on their way to the next instance, which will define in “sudden death” duels the names of the two winners of the organized zones in Asia.
