Cuba Rallies to Down Tigers

Cuba defeated the Hanshin Tigers 3-2, rallying for three runs in the fifth.  Frederich Cepeda laced a 2-run bases loaded single and Jose Abreu a sacrifice fly to drive in the three runs.  Odrisamer Despaigne got the start for Cuba but didn’t get past the first inning, giving up two hits and two walks.  Matt Murton drove in both runs with a single in the first for the Tigers.

Yander Guevara and Norberto Gonzalez threw six plus innings of shutout ball to allow Cuba to make the comeback.  The Tigers had two runners thrown out at home, one in the fifth on a ground out to third and in the sixth after a two out single to left.
