Toros del Este 11 – 5 Tigres del Licey

Liriano got a rare opportunity to play last night making his first appearance since December 30th and only his second appearance since the second day in November. He was understandably rusty striking out twice and flying out to right field before being removed for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the eighth inning.

After a rough last week, Caminero looked better last night converting his third save of the post-season. While he did allow a lead-off single to Yasmany Tomas, he quickly erased that base-runner by inducing a ground ball double play followed by another ground ball out to finish the game.

On the other side, Pobereyko made his first appearance of the week for the Estrellas in the top of the seventh inning with one out. He allowed a lead-off double to Ryan Court, but was able to strike out Ronny Paulino and get Wilkin Castillo to line out softly to end the inning.
