Caribes Last Team to Qualify for Series del Caribe

Caribes 8 Magallanes 3

Caribes will represent Venezuela for the second time in their franchise history after beating Magallanes in five games. They scraped together 16 hits and punched across four runs in the top of the ninth to ice the game. Jose Gil hit a two run homer in the ninth to sustain that rally. Niuman Romero and Ehire Adrianza continued to smoke from the leadoff spot for Caribes, each collecting three hits. Jose Castillo one upped them with his four hits from the clean up spot. Caribes used seven different pitchers, including starter Amicar Gaxiola who pitched in the Mexican League round robin playoffs but got his third start for Caribes, going only two innings.
