Dominican Republic with no room to make mistakes against Israel

The Dominican Baseball Team is obliged to present its best version against a rival that it has never faced or otherwise faces a possible and unexpected elimination.

To Dominican Republic there is no tomorrow. After two painful losses in which his baseball team was beaten in the ninth inning, first in the opening game against Japan and then in the meeting in front of South KoreaDespite dominating two of the tournament’s most productive offenses, he has placed himself in a dangerous situation that could cost him his tenure at Tokyo 2020.

Worry increases when you remember that Israel, located in the post number 24 of the ranking of the World Baseball and Softball Confederation (WBSC), defeated and eliminated Mexico, country that is located in the fifth place of said ranking, while Dominican Republic occupies the seventh position.

The Dominican team has the best performance in Olympic baseball in this edition of the tournament, in general terms, but one of its main problems has been the moment in which they have tolerated races. A ERA as a set of 2.77 It shows this, but when we see the numbers of the two players who have closed matches (Jairo Asencio and Luis Felipe Castillo), the story is completely different.

The second big Dominican problem is that they have the worst offense in the Olympic tournament. In 95 official at-bats, the team has barely hit for an anemic .211 average and has only noted seven times in three games played. A very different reality from what was seen during the pre-Olympic tournament in Las Americas and the Olympic playoffs.

Faced with this reality, the leader Hector Borg decided to make several moves in his lineup, reincorporating Johan Mieses already Gustavo Nunez, while in catching he will debut Roldani Baldwin, leaving the same Jose Bautista (no hits so far) and Yefri Perez, trying to look for some offensive reaction.

With respect to the leader, it is true that Dominican adage that indicates that “dfrom the stands no one is wrong”, So questioning the manager’s decisions is difficult when the game plan is not at hand. Regardless of it, Borg he will have to go out with his most aggressive version and demand that same aggressiveness from each of his players and coaches if he hopes to go out “with life”Of the meeting to return to play in Tokyo 2020.

Dominican Republic you do not have room to make a single mistake more and less against a dangerous opponent such as Israel, on that depends the permanence of the selection in the Olympic Games.
