La Paz, Mexico, November 7 (PL)-- Nicaragua and Cuba will star today in a baseball duel surrounded by expectations and mathematical accounts, on the way to elucidate the surviving teams of group A in the U18 Pan American Championship in Baja California Sur, Mexico.

Panama's surprising success over Mexico (6-2) filled the panorama with uncertainty and until the last game of the group, the names of the teams that will continue in the race for the title of the continental competition and the World Cup tickets will not be known.

The Caribbean island has an even balance of 1-1, while the Pinoleros (0-2) are still looking for their first celebration in a section led by the Canaleros (2-1) and the Mexicans (2-1), who have already completed the phase and are awaiting the outcome of the sporting drama.

Prensa Latina learned that Cuba will use left-hander Dario Sarduy as starter, but will have its entire staff ready: "It is a vital game and our designation enjoys good control and command of the curve and change", said exclusively the head pitching coach Adrian Arguelles.

However, the coach said that Miguel Flores, another flamethrower of the so-called wrong hand, will be prepared to face a long reliever, if the Central Americans complicate the situation. In addition, Jan Ewing Cabrera will serve as closer.

Regarding his upcoming presentation in the box of the Arturo C. Nahl Stadium, Sarduy said he is excited to give his country an extremely significant victory, and also thanked the trainers for their confidence.

Everything is going to flow, we have already demonstrated our quality against the Panamanians. The goal is to get the ticket to next year's World Cup and none of the players thinks that history will be different, added the flamethrower, whose straight line is close to 90 miles per hour.

These words were endorsed by the stopper Cabrera: "From the beginning of the preparation, the idea was to feel like winners and fight for the medals in the tournament. Our goals are still the same here.

Meanwhile, the United States (3-0) mathematically advanced after defeating Venezuela (1-1) 9-4, while Puerto Rico defeated Peru (0-2) 10-9, in both cases at the Leonardo Gastelum Park in Cabo San Lucas, one of the sub-hosts of the competition.

On Monday, the schedule for the segment includes the Venezuela-Puerto Rico and Canada (0-2)-Peru matches, while the only undefeated team, the United States, will have a day off.
