Cuba to Challenge for Bronze in Pan-Am U-15 Baseball Championship

Cartagena, Aug 19 (Prensa Latina) After an flawless winning streak, Cuban baseball team has been unexpectedly defeated (7-4) by the Dominican Republic in the so-called super-round and will challenge Panama for bronze medal in the 3rd Pan American U-15 Baseball Championship.

The Dominican Republic and USA will challenge for the championship, a team that defeated Brazil 4-3 at Once de Noviembre Ballpark in Cartagena de Indias.

The game between Cuba and Dominican Republic was extended to extra-innings. In this much-expected game, Cuba, unlike as it did in the rest of the tournament, had a very poor offensive (4 hits).

Yadiel Guerra was one of the most outstanding Cuban batters (2 for 5, 2 RBIs) during the game.

However, Cuban baseball team qualified for coming 2018 World U-15 Championship in Santo Domingo, as well as the United States, Panama, Brazil and Dominican Republic already included as host country.
