In a baseball game that was extremely important to Junior Team Cuba, they defeated the United States in a Quarter Final game at the 2010 World Junior Baseball Championship, in Thunder Bay Canada.
Cuba won the game because of the stellar performance by Cuban pitcher Omar Luis Rodriguez, who went the full nine innings and struck out five, while allowing two bases on balls. The Americans hit well, collecting ten hits.
Cuba only had six hits. Aviles, Jimenez and Hernandez each had a run batted in.
