Caracas, February 6 (RHC) - As if it were a chess game, in baseball everyone sees things from their side of the board. And if on the field of the Gran Caracas 2023 Caribbean Series there is a fight for victory every minute, once the game is over, cordiality and ethics reign: it could be said that there is even fraternity between winners and losers.

From that side of the board, Carlos Martí, manager of the Agricultores de Cuba, has had to analyze things on three consecutive occasions. This Sunday, after the 6-5 loss to the Cañeros de Los Mochis, from Mexico, the Cuban manager was sparing and realistic in a press conference.

"It was a great game. We were unlucky, we didn't hit at the right time and their pitching was very good, especially the relief pitching. I think that was the fundamental cause of the defeat. The team fought as hard as they could".

On the other hand, the bench coach of the Aztecs, Osvaldo Morejón, praised the grit of the Mexican champion, which has been able to come from behind to add 3 successes in the Caracas game. Of the Cuban team, Morejon highlighted, before the media, their capacity to react, after Saturday's resounding 20-3 loss to Venezuela.

"We are very happy for the victory. It was difficult for us, as they came back and we had to come from behind. Luckily, things worked out and we were able to win. We never stopped fighting: the pitching performed well and the offense responded when needed. Cuba has a very good team, with experienced players and pitchers, but we knew how to take advantage of our moments and that led us to victory. This Mexican team never stops fighting".

Having played 4 elimination dates, the Caribbean Series has, precisely, Mexicans and Venezuelans settled at the top, with 3 smiles; with 2 wins appear the representatives of Dominican Republic, Panama, Colombia and Curacao, while Puerto Rico and Cuba close the table, with one win per capita.

This Monday, things could become clearer on both sides of the board: the first to qualify or the first to be eliminated.

For the moment, they all have a chance of reaching the semifinals of a baseball classic where passion reigns, but also the fraternity of the Caribbean
