Águilas debuts with victory against Cardinals

In the other match of the day, Leones del Caracas beat Tiburones de La Guaira 7-4.


The Eagles of Zulia started their 2020-2021 season with the right foot by defeating the Cardenales de Lara, two-time champion of the local tournament, on the night of this Friday, November 27, by 6 to 4 at the Antonio Herrera Gutiérrez stadium, in Barquisimeto, without public as part of biosecurity measures.

Zulia scored a run in the first and ninth innings, and a rally of four in the fifth, while Lara discounted in the seventh and nearly tied in the eighth and ninth.

Third baseman Ali Castillo closed with two RBIs and one scored, while left fielder Grenny Cumaná drove in another pair for the Zulianos. Pablo Olivares and Daniel Brito, first and second batters in the line-up, left with two runs each.

One of Lara’s most important hires, Jose Tábata, with experience as a ‘bigleaguer’, had to leave the game after receiving a ball to the head.

In the other match of the day, Leones del Caracas beat Tiburones de La Guaira 7-4.

This season it was reduced to 40 games per team in the regular season, which will be played in five authorized “bubble” venues that can only be entered after passing tests for coronavirus. The parks in principle do not receive public, although the plan is to open the doors later after the government authorized the entry of fans to stadiums with a maximum of 30% capacity.

The season also allowed the hiring of players from the majors after the lifting of the veto of Major League Baseball (MLB) last year due to the sanctions of the United States against Venezuela, the second largest exporter of talent to the Major Leagues after the Republic. Dominican.
