A long day will be lived this Sunday within the 59th Cuban National Baseball Championship, after the suspensions of several meetings this Friday at the beginning of the last particular series.
The rain suspended and sealed most of the duels and the date only saw the end of the matches between Cienfuegos and Villa Clara, in the Augusto César Sandino stadium, and Holguin against Guantanamo, in the NGuyen Van Troi.
The ‘Elephants’ (27-16) follow the wind and all sail in search of its direct classification to the next phase and beat 4-1 the already eliminated submonarch of the lid, Villa Clara (16-25), which as local could do little to the push of their opponents.
Likewise, in a minor game, Noelvis Gonzalez’s ‘Cubs’ (18-24) continued their positive streak after sweeping Santiago de Cuba (26-15), and defeated the ‘Indios’ guantanameros (9-34) 5-3, bottom of the standings.
The rest of the calendar was postponed and this Sunday will be a day of double matches, if the weather conditions allow it.
Thus, leader Camagüey (27-14) will host Sancti Spíritus (24-17), sixth in the ranking, at the Candido Gonzalez stadium, home of the competition’s Game of the Stars, to be held from 18 to 20 of the current month.
Matanzas (26-15), second place, will visit the aforementioned Santiago de Cuba, fourth seat, while Granma (23-18, seventh), a serious aspirant for wild tickets, will host the eliminated Ciego de Ávila in his home Martyrs of Barbados.
Industriales (22-18, eighth) and Isla de la Juventud (21-21, tenth) will define their fate versus Artemisa (14-27, fifteenth) and Pinar del Rio (21-21, ninth), respectively, always at home of the seconds, and the current champion of the lid, Las Tunas (23-16, fifth), will fight in front of his audience to sweep Mayabeque (15-27, penultimate), one of the most unstable payrolls of the campaign.
