Puerto Rico punched its ticket into the championship game by defeating a very tough Venezuelan side at home by a final score of 2-0. The defining moment of the game came in the eighth inning of, what was up until that point, a scoreless game.
An error by Minnesota Twins infielder Eduardo Escobar loaded the bases with two outs, and a struggling Eddie Rosario coming to bat for the islanders. In less than impressive fashion, the Guayama native redeemed himself with a two-RBI blooper that sailed over Escobar’s head and into shallow left field.
"To win a game against such a great Venezuelan team in their home park is not easy," said Puerto Rico skipper Carlos Baerga after the game. "It was a tremendous game. If we play defense and pitch the way we are capable, we can win the Series."
Don’t miss the conclusion of what has been a very exciting two weeks at the Caribbean Series 2014 (Serie del Caribe) finals. Which flag will stand when the smoke clears: Puerto Rico, who has a long and proud tradition of baseball, or Mexico who has put itself on the baseball map as of late?
