Heroes of the game.
Cuba came alive in the bottom of the sixth inning, after being held hitless for five innings. The criollos connected four hits and scored three runs on the six inning, chasing the Dominicans starting pitcher, Willy Lebron, who up to that point had done an excellent job of blanking out the Cubans.
The spark was a key hit by Yuliesky Gourriel, which send Frederich Cepeda home with the winning run.
Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez performed very well for seven complete innings.
Yadier Pedroso came as a reliever in the eighth inning, and he did an excellent job.
