Dominican Winter League playoffs

The two teams everyone expected are in the Playoffs, Licey got his ticket the last day of action when they won 4-0 over aguilas in Santo Domingo, by winning Licey eliminated Estrellas from the finals.

So the finals started on Monday, the first 6 innings were a pitching duel, it was a close game until Aguilas had a 12 run 7th inning, so Aguilas won 14-4.

Licey took the lead when Miguel Tejada error led to 2 runs, but then Aguilas tied it when Carlos Perez who was un-hittable in the regular season and round-robin gave a Hr with a man on base to tied the game, then it was batting practice for Aguilas.

On Tuesday Juan Cruz pitched 7 innings, Felix Rodriguez the 8th and Jorge Sosa closing to give Licey a 3-0 win over Aguilas and to even the series.

Ronnie Belliard hit a bases loaded single that clear the bases, Jose Offerman running at first base score when he ran like he was in the mid 20's again.

Jose Guillen was in the line up as a DH after missing the last couple of games with a sore wrist, he was hitless with a SO and grounded twice into double play.

So tonight will be Lima time in Santiago against Ramon Oritz who is 0-3 so far.
