Baseball updates

It’s been an exciting week of baseball action during the Winter League round robin playoff series. The Estrellas have surprised everyone by becoming the team to beat as of today. Last night the Estrellas beat the Gigantes 4-3 after a single by Fernando Tatis scored Elvis Alcantara, who was on second. The win leaves the Estrellas in sole possession of first place with a record of 4-2. In the night’s second game, the Aguilas beat the Tigres del Licey 7-4 behind a three-run homerun by Victor Diaz and five solid innings for Robinson Tejada. The win tied the Aguilas with Licey for second place in the post-season standings. Both have a record of 3-3. The shift in the standings has now left the once heavily favored Gigantes del Cibao in last place.
