Caribbean Series, Day 4

After losing a tough 11-9 game Saturday to Venezuela, the Dominican Republic champions, Licey, used a six run seventh to rout Puerto Rican champs Carolina 9-2. The D.R. team is 3-1 and Puerto Rico is 1-3.

In the late game, the home country champions of Venezuela, los Leones de Caracas, edged Mexico's champs, Mazatlan, 4-3 in 10 innings.

Venezuela led 3-1 in the top of the 9th and Francisco Rodriguez came in to try to get the save, but surrendered a leadoff single and a stolen base to Trenidad Hubbard. Oscar Robles then struck out. Then Hubbard stole third. Which wasn't necessary since Juan Canizalez hit a 2-run homer to tie the game.

In the bottom of the 10th, Marty McLeary retired the first two batters then gave up a single to Luis Rodriguez and issued consecutive walks to Marco Scutaro and Rafael Alvarez. Out went McLeary and in came Ignacio Flores, who gave up a single to Alex Cabrera to score the game-winner. Venezuela is a perfect 4-0 and could clinch the series tomorrow if they beat Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic loses to Mexico.
