Mayaguez Wins Pitcher’s Duel

Runs were scarce in the Indios 1-0 win over Santurce. Andrew Barbosa worked the first six innings allowing just four hits. Giovanni Soto completed two innings of one hit ball before turning it over to Fernando Cabrera in the ninth to complete the victory. Roy Merritt started for Santurce and allowed the lone run.

Mayaguez could only find three hits in their bats. They got one of those hits in the sixth inning that led to the lone run. A leadoff hit batsman started the inning and with the bases loaded another hit by pitch forced the lone run home.

The best opportunity Santurce had to score was in the sixth when they loaded the bases with two outs after a hit by pitch. Jorge Padilla could not drive in the run, flying out to center field.
