Havana, September 26 (RHC)-- Cuba defeated Germany 10-3 today and added its second victory in Group A of the Under-23 World Baseball Championship, held in Ciudad Obregón, Mexico, until October 2nd.

A four-run hit in the second inning and another two three-run bunches in the third and fifth, sealed the success of the Cuban team, which once again showed a low offensive output, reports Prensa Latina (PL).

Second baseman Miguel Antonio González, with a hit, a run scored and three runs batted in plus two bases on balls, stood out with his lumber.

Right fielder Loidel Chapellí also stood out from the batting box with one hit in four innings and two men batted in at the plate, as well as third baseman Yandy Yañez with 1-1, one run scored, one run batted in and three tickets.

From the box, starter Marlon Vega got the win after five innings of work, in which he allowed only one hit and one run, mainly due to his lack of control, while he gave out eight strikeouts and gave away two tickets.

Kelvis Rodríguez, the first reliever sent by manager Eriel Sánchez, worked one inning and one third, allowed three hits, gave away one ticket and gave away two runs, although he retired three batters on strikes.

Right-hander Frank Abel Álvarez dominated the last two opponents in the seventh, one of them with a strikeout.

The loss went to Titus Von Kapff, who pitched well in the first chapter, but did not get an out in the second, in which he conceded three of the four runs scored by the Creoles.

Cuba left with 10 runs, six hits and four errors, while Germany went 3-4-1.

After this result, Cuba has two wins and one setback to place itself in first place along with Mexico and Taipei of China, but awaiting the result between the Czech Republic (1-2) and the Dominican Republic, which is 1-1 and could also finish the day with 2-1.

Tomorrow, Monday, the Caribbean ninth will face the Czech Republic in an attempt to secure their third victory of the tournament.
