VENEZUELAN LEAGUE

Cardenales de Lara  4,  Caribes de Anzoategui  3

Los Caribes had a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th.  That's when Los Cardenales took the lead and the win with a 2-run homer.  CF Gorkys Hernandez went 1-for-3, with a single in the 5th inning.

 

Navegantes del Magallanes  6,  Leones del Caracas  1

Four consecutive singles got Los Navegantes off to a 2 run lead in the top of the 1st.  Los Leones got one run back with a double and a single in the bottom of the 1st.  But that was all Los Leones would do, and Los Navegantes kept going, scoring one in each of the 3rd and 4th, and 2 more in the 7th.  DH Ramon Cabrera went 0-for-4 for Los Leones.
