In the key fifth game of the finals playoffs of the XLVI Cuban Baseball Series, the Avispas of Santiago de Cuba won by the score of 6-4. They now lead the best-of-seven finals, three games to one, and with one more victory they will be crowned as the new Cuban champs.
In yesterday’s game, a triple with the bases loaded by third baseman Maikel Castellanos effectively put the game away. Today is a travel day, and the series resumes tomorrow at the Guillermón Moncada stadium in Santiago de Cuba. Both Granma and Juventud Rebelde will carry the play-by-play live on the Internet.
