Caribbean Series, Game 4, Venezuela vs Puerto Rico

Live from Valencia!

Orlando Trias pitches for Venezuela and Jim Magrane for Puerto Rico.
(Remember that these are clubs representing the teams, not national teams with strict rules on nationality like ... um ... never mind.)

And thanks to a Marco Scutaro grand slam (or as it's called in Spanish grand slam) in the second, Venezuela cruised to a 6-1 victory over Puerto Rico.

Venezuela and Dominican Republic, both 2-0, face off Saturday with Mexico taking on Puerto Rico. Then on Sunday, the teams start over again. The team with the best record after six games is the champ. If two teams tie with the same record at the top then there is a one-game playoff. And it's not unlikely that Venezuela and Dominican Republic could end up 5-1.

I was working fast and left out some pronouns.

Ponga is about as close as you can get to "put out" or "set out" as I know.

But try
Abuelita, ponga el pan, esta es un salami!

Dave Niehaus is probably somewhere wondering what he has wrought. He has not had much opportunity to use his grand slam call the past few years with the Mariners.

I think the Japanese use a variation of "grand slam" too that sounds like English.

Sort of.
