Caracas, February 6 (PL) - Agricultores de Cuba will play for its future today against Vaqueros de Monteria (Colombia), in the fifth day of the Caribbean Baseball Series 2023.

The Cubans will arrive at the game with a record of only one win and three losses, so they cannot lose any more in order to advance to the semifinals, because they would no longer depend on themselves.

Right-hander Jonathan Carbó will be in charge of keeping his team alive and, according to what he confessed to Prensa Latina, he is ready to take on the challenge and has already turned the page with respect to his previous performance, which was not good.

"One cannot always have a quality start, because we are not perfect, but we must continue to be prepared and focus on what comes next to achieve qualification," he explained.

That day he acknowledged that he got too far out of the zone and paid for it against experienced hitters, and commented that he was already able to see something of the opponents.

"I was observing the hitters and as a group we drew up a strategy. If at any moment the pitcher needs help, we give him signs from the bench," he said.

He assured that the rapport with catcher Yosvany Alarcón is good, despite the fact that he had never received him before.

That harmony will be key to keep Cuba alive against Colombians who have been very strong offensively, second in batting average with .273, but first in sluggin with .400 and in OPS with .771.
