Venezuela achieves its second victory in the Miami 2024 Caribbean Series

MIAMI.- Ramón Flores hit a home run in the first inning and the Tiburones de La Guaira (Venezuela) They achieved their second victory in the Miami 2024 Caribbean Series after beating the Curacao delegation 4-2.

The Curacao ninth scored in the bottom of the second inning, but a chapter later the Venezuelans got another run when Cuban Yasiel Puig walked with the bases loaded. Then Wilson Ramos brought another line in a selection play.

“I went to look for a pitch, I was looking for a fastball and a pass. I’m not a home run hitter, but I hit the ball well and it left the park. This team is up for great things,” Flores said in a post-game press conference. “Since the round robin ended (in Venezuela) I was in Miami training and I told them I was available because I wanted to play in the Caribbean Series.”

The harmony that this team has brought since mid-December has infected everyone.

Curacao made another one in the third inning, but the Venezuelan bullpen remained armored. The four relievers used only allowed three hits.

Arnaldo Hernández, the closer of the shark team, put the lock on for the second time in the tournament.

“I’m confident in the bullpen we have, a pretty good bullpen,” Ozzie said.
