Because several games had been rained out, archrival fans from Santo Domingo and Santiago are in for a baseball treat ? a mini-playoff between the Licey and the Aguilas over the weekend. The two teams have three games scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as reported in El Caribe. The Aguilas yesterday won their first game since the round robin had begun on 2 January. On Thursday, they defeated the Estrellas 5-4 in Santiago. The Licey leads the series with 4 wins followed by the Gigantes with 2 wins and 2 losses, the Aguilas with one win and one loss and the Estrellas with four losses.
