Following the euphoria of the recent victory in the Caribbean series, Cuban baseball fans are now turning their attention to the national championship, which resumes today in preparation for the final tournament.
Among the new sub-series this weekend, we must highlight the duel between Industriales, the capital team, third in the general classification with a record of 35 wins and 25 defeats, and Granma 2nd with 38 wins and 22 losses.
Hardly a match separates Granma from the defending vice-champion and first in the table for this season, Matanzas who have 39 wins and 21 losses. The latter receives Artemisa.
Defending champion Pinar del Río (33-27) meets Ciego de Avila (32-28), Holguin (27-33) who is in the tail and faces Youth of Youth (33-27),
There are only 27 days left in the second phase of the national championship to define the four teams that will compete in the final.
