Cuba, US Unstoppable in Baseball Olympic Qualifier

Havana, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) The national baseball teams of Cuba and the US will try to continue with their winning streak in the Olympic Qualification Tournament for the Americas taking place in Havana on Tuesday.

Pool A leader Cuba, which has defeated Colombia, Panama and Dominican Republic, plays against Nicaragua in the Latin American Stadium.

Nicaraguans are in the second position with 2 wins and a loss, tied with Panama, which faces off with underdog Ecuador.

The Dominican Republic will play against Colombia.

The US, commanding the Pool B, after straight victories over Canada, Brazil and Mexico, collides with Puerto Rico.

The four teams with most wins in each pool advance to the next round.

Cubans and the US seem to be with greatest possibilities and tools to grab the two berths for the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.

This tournament also offers positions for Rio de Janeiro 2007 Pan American Games and four slots for the World Cup in Chinese Taipei next year.
