Venezuela goes for its Caribbean Series title since 1989 if they the Dominican Republic team from Licey tonight. If the Dominican Republic wins, then there is a another game tomorrow night. Juan Cruz pitches for the Dominican Republic and Jerermi (or Geremi) Gonzalez for Venezuela.
In the early game today, Puerto Rico edged Mexico 3-2 in 11 innings. The defending champions from Mazatlan went 0-6 in Venezuela. Puerto Rico was 2-4.
Update - And it's over. Venezuela, down 4-3 going to the bottom of the ninth rallies to win 5-4 on RBI singles from Alex Gonzalez (Boston variety) and Henry Blanco off of Jorge Sosa.
Update - And Blanco's single was actually a pop fly that shortstop Erick Aybar misplayed and it hit him in the head and rolled to the wall to allow Gonzalez to score the winning run.
