alazanes 1Photo: La DemajaguaWhen the board of the Mártires de Barbados stadium marked, on Thursday night, the final 4-2, Granma mocked for the second consecutive year the criteria issued by a large number of "specialists" of Cuban baseball, leaving the favorite Matanzas, for repeated occasion, with the desire to advance towards the coveted title held by the Alazanes since the previous National Series.
In the fifth and final match of this semifinal playoff, Yoanni Yera, although he threw with quality, it was impossible to repeat the result achieved in the only Matanzas triumph at the beginning of the match, because this time it was a more closed game and the left-handed of Los Crocodiles could not avoid the draw to two in the seventh, when he left the box.

Holguin reinforcement Geydi Soler defined the fate of the match with a timely hit against Lahera, with the bases loaded in the eighth, boosting two races, which gave conclusive advantage to Granma.

Now Granma is waiting for its rival (Industriales or Las Tunas) to defend its crown in the final playoff of the LVII National Baseball Series.

On the other hand, the Matanzas team Cocodrilos made mutis. The sustained and opportune batting of the Yumurinos stopped being it and the pitching, contrary to the expected, showed some problems, without obviating questioned determinations in managing the game.

Industriales won in the Latin American against Las Tunas (Los Leñadores) in the semifinal, which need, at least, to win a game.
