Fuentes Again Leads Santurce to Win

Reymond Fuentes blooped a single into right field to drive in the tying run in the fifth then doubled in the go ahead run in the seventh to give the Santurce Crabbers a 3-2 win over the Mayaguez Indios. Santurce is now one win away from making an appearance in the Series del Caribe, leading the series three games to two.

Mayaguez put two runners on in the ninth after two were out but Johnny Monell lifted a fly to left not deep enough to go over the fence and it was snagged for the third out. Ricardo Gomez picked up his seventh save of the playoffs despite walking the tying run to second. Adalberto Flores got the start and went five innings, giving up two unearned runs. Luis Santos was credited with the win pitching two shutout innings in relief.

Fuentes and Jorge Padilla finished the game with three hits each for Santurce.
