Right from the start of the sixth game of the finals of the XLIX National Baseball Series, the Naranjas showed that they were going to be on top, and that they would not be denied the title of National Baseball Champions.
The game opened with a bases on balls to Leonys Martin. Yuniet Flores hit to right field sent Leonys to third base. Next, a double play ensued, which allowed Leonys to score easily the Naranjas initial run. “We are in charge here, the Oranges seemed to be saying.”
On their first two innings, the Industriales were totally dominated by Naranjas starting pitcher Robelio Carrillo; no hits, no runs.
Everything fell apart for the Blues on the top of the second inning. Naranjas: hit by Yulexis La Rosa, bases on balls to Yandrys Canto, hit by Aledmis Díaz, and the bases were loaded. That was all for the Industriales starting pitcher, Arley Sanchez, who had nothing tonight. He was quickly replaced by Armando Rivero. Two more runs followed, compounded by an Industriales error, and it was 3-0 in favor of the Oranges. Curtains for the Blues?
