Aguilas haven’t played yet!
Big league pitching by Juan Cruz and powerful hitting by Manny Martinez, Jose Offerman, Jose Guillen and Ronnie Belliard toppled the Estrellas Orientales 8-1 in last night’s only game. The Aguilas Cibaenas were rained out again, and for the third time in the playoffs. The first game against Licey was a washout, the second one in San Pedro de Macoris suffered a series of blackouts, nasty fans and, at the end, a downpour that forced the suspension in the fourth inning. Last night the game started but was halted at the top of the first inning. While the ground crew worked feverishly to keep the field in playing condition, by ten o’clock the umpires had to call it a day.
