ESPN Digital It presents you with everything you need to know prior to Sunday’s matchday and at the same time you can follow the games on our boards live.
Tigres del Licey vs Águilas Cibaeñas
Los Tigres del Licey come to the ‘Valley of Death’ in search of their first victory against the Eagles this season.
The blue team has lost, they have lost the first two matches by the slightest difference and they place their hopes on right-hand Adonis Medina to guide them to victory.
The Tigers are also in their best moment of the season since the start of 2021, behind their third victory in a row, something they have not achieved since the first opening games.
For the Eagles, the right-hander Yoanner Negrín comes to the mound, who so far has not had his best presentations in the league, with only 3 innings and 2 thirds thrown in two starts.
In them he accumulates an ERA of 17.18 by allowing 7 earned runs, 2 walks and only awarding two strikeouts.
Bulls of the East vs Lions of the Chosen One
At the same time, the Quisqueya Juan Marichal Stadium will be the stage where Bulls and Lions meet.
The Eastern team comes from losing two consecutive games and accumulating only 5 victories in the last 10 games, but despite this they are only one game behind the Lions who occupy the third place in the table.
The bullfighters announced the hiring of Daniel Rufenacht as the new assistant to the General Manager, after the stormy departure of Carlos J. Lugo as manager of the Licey.
Ethan Small is scheduled to make his second outing of the week, coming off a loss to the Gigantes del Cibao by allowing 4 hits and 3 earned runs in just two innings of work.
Giants of Cibao vs Eastern Stars
The Stars host the Giants at the Tetelo Vargas Stadium, in perhaps their best moment of the season, where they have placed in the first position of the table alone.
With 9 wins and five losses, 7 and 3 in their last three games, the Orientals have made the most of the incorporation of Robinson Canó and the mistakes of their opponents.
Edwin Uceta will take the mound for the greens, being one of the best pitchers on the team so far this season. In two starts he has a 1.80 ERA, 0.50 WHIP and has struck out 7 opponents in 10 innings to set his record of 2 wins without losses.
The Orientals will receive the incorporation of the left-handed Darien Núñez, who will enter the roster on Monday and his arrival in the country is expected this Sunday, to help the reliever corps and replace Steven Fuentes who concluded his work with the team.
Tyler Alexander (0-2, 4.50 ERA) will be opened by the Gigantes del Cibao, who received the news that José Sirí will join the Northeast team in the next few days.
