Day 3 Dominican Round Robin - Three Way tie

The Toros sent Escogido Leones to their first defeat with a 5-1 victory, resulting in a three way tie in the round robin play.  Alberto Cabrera threw five plus innings of shutout ball and Ricardo Nanita drove in three runs with a triple and double.  Jairo Asencio threw a perfect ninth to close out the game.

The Leones had cut the lead to one courtesy of an error by Donell Linares.  A ground out allowed the run to score.  The Toros then answered with three big runs in the bottom frame to pull away, Ricardo Nanita clearing the bases with a two out, three run double.

The Cibaenas Aguilas were able to keep pace with a 5-2 win over the winless Estrellas Oriente.  Samuel Deduno gave up two early runs in the second inning to give Estrellas an early 2-0 lead.  Aguilas battled back, tying the game in the fourth on a double by Francisco Pena, scoring both Manny Ramirez and Miguel Tejeda.  They took the lead in the fifth on a ground out by Hector Luna and pulled away in the eighth on a Manny Ramirez sacrifice fly and a Miguel Tejeda double.

Johan Yan got the last out of the eighth and then finished the ninth to pick up the save.  Samuel Deduno went five plus innings to pick up the win.  After finishing second in the regular season with one of only two winning records Estrellas has started the round robin play 0-3.
