Nicaragua Downs Panama to Win Central American Championship

Elmer Reyes slugged a two run homer and Wilton Lopez quieted the Panamanian bats to give Nicaragua a 3-1 win in the Central American championships. The games were played at the newly built Dennis Martinez stadium.

El Salvador and Guatemala shared the bronze medal since rain prevented the bronze medal game from being played. Honduras finished fifth and Costa Rica was sixth.

The win by Nicaragua earns them a trip to Barranquilla, Colombia where they will play in the Central American and Caribbean championships in 2018. Teams competing in that event are Cuba, Dominican Republic, Panama, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Mexico and the host Colombians.
