Elite League: Leader Agricultores receives defender Centrales on Saturday

Havana, October 29 (RHC)-- The leader Agricultores will receive today the defender Centrales at the Julio Antonio Mella stadium in Havana, at the beginning of the third particular sub-series of the First Elite League of Cuban baseball, with its main pitcher announced on the mound, right-hander Cesar Garcia.

The Agricultores of mentor Carlos Martí have a 4-1 record at the top, while the Centrales of manager Armando Ferrer share the cellar with Cafetaleros (1-3) separated by 2.5 games from the place of honor.

Undoubtedly, the great morbidity of the match will be the presence of veteran middle infielder Danel Castro wearing the Centrales (Matanzas+Cienfuegos+Villa Clara) pennants -remember that he was asked by Ferrer as a reinforcement-, against a team that includes his fellow Tuneros and players from Granma.

César García's opponent will be right-hander Freddy Asiel Álvarez.

Meanwhile, at the Calixto García Park, the Tabacaleros (3-2) will visit Cafetaleros (1-3), with the announcement of Artemio right-hander Yunieski García as starter. For the locals, left-hander Uberley Estévez will pitch.

At the Cándido González stadium in Camagüey, the Ganaderos team (2-1, with two suspended games) will receive Portuarios (2-3). Frank Madam will start for the local team and Pavel Hernández will start for the visiting team.

After the conclusion of two sub-series, only 12 home runs have been hit, for an average of 0.92 per game, 47 extra-bases have been hit (3.62 per game) and the number of stolen bases is very low (9) for an average of 0.75 per game.

As for the pitching, 111 clean runs have been allowed (8.45 per game) and there has been an excellent improvement in the strikeouts vs. bases on balls ratio, as the pitchers have fanned 116 opponents and have given away 76 tickets.

Finally, the tournament's defense has 23 errors, for an average of 1.77 hits per game.
