The Guantanamo Van Troi Stadium was the scene of the good work of left-handed Lander Moreira who tied Granma and could only score one run through Yordanis Samon´s homer.
The hits of Yoilán Serce, Giorbis Duvergel and Yoennis Southeran were the engine for Guantánamo to score two runs and lead the game until the end. Indians hit 10 times and Granma 8.
The defeat came for starter Alberto Soto, who left the mound and yielded to the Guantanamo’s third win of the seven games scheduled for quarter finals.
Tomorrow, both teams will meet again, this time at the Granma Mártires de Barbados stadium.
