Havana, October 2 – The Cuban baseball team under the age of 23 meets Colombia today in a rematch and a bronze medal, at the third world championship at Sonora Stadium, in Mexico.
In this phase of the Super Round, the students of the spiritual leader Eriel Sánchez lost 1-6 against the South American team, but today the motivation is much greater since she decides the third place in the competition where a Cuban team makes its debut. .
For the important duel, Eriel will give the ball to Matanza’s left-hander Naykel Cruz, who has signed two of Cuba’s five victories through the tournament, both in the qualifying phase against Chinese Taipei and Panama.
Naykel can be effective against the excellent left-handed battle available to coffee growers, led by right-winger and guard leader Gustavo Campero, battle leader (520), home race and seven RBI owners.
Cuba, reduced by the abandonment of the eight-player delegation, will not be able to make any changes in the composition. But yesterday, with a clear claw and remembering the wrestling teams from the 90s, they got a big victory that left Panama 9-8 below, in the eighth round with Schiller’s board. (ACN) (Photo: File)
