The Tigres del Licey carried off the regular season championship for the 17th time. Likewise, the Aguilas Cibaenas have assured their participation in the round robin play offs. At press time the Estrellas, who had lost the first game of a rare twilight double-header by a score of 8 to 1, were leading 4 – 0 in the fifth inning. The trouble is that the Estrellas cannot lose another game if they are to have even the slightest hope of making the Round Robin phase of the championship. And even with this happening, they need for the Leones de Escogido and the Azucareros of La Romana to keep on losing. Last night, the Leones won 5 – 4 over the Azucareros and Licey won 2 – 0 over the hapless Gigantes de San Francisco de Macoris.
