Who is dragging the bat in the final series?

¿Quiénes están arrastrando el bate en la serie final?

The double that Sergio Alcántara fired in the fourth episode and which proved to be enough for the Tigres del Licey to beat the Estrellas Orientales 1-0 and take command of the final, was just the first hit from his bat in the series.

The timely shot was just the first one that hits no man’s ground in 11 exhausted turns in the last instance of the tournament for an average of 0.91.

It is fair to say that infielder Alcántara is not the only one who has been dragging the bat in the final that the Tigers dominate 2-1 and that tonight will present the fourth of seven games that is agreed.

His partner Ronny Mauricio, the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, an award that was supported by the record .287-5-31, has not yet “put a number on the house” in 12 official shifts.

Between the three of them, they have a third of the hits connected by Cuban outfielder Dairon Blanco (6-for-9, with three stolen bases, for an unsustainable .667 batting average), who has somehow silenced the voices that criticized management for having selected him instead of Henry Urrutia in the Draw for Imports carried out by the Professional Baseball League of the Dominican Republic.

Another Blues player who has been suffering from offensive anemia is Venezuelan catcher Jesús Sucre, who is averaging 0.91, the result of a nine-at-bat single.

Las Estrellas, meanwhile, despite the fact that they present a fearsome line-up, they also have several who have fallen prey to this evil.

The list is headed by the versatile veteran Danny Santana, who has failed in seven attempts, nothing comparable to the average of .326, 46-for-15 and 6 RBIs, that he had in the Round Robin.

Junior Lake is 2-for-11 (1.82), similar to the .194 he averaged in the semifinal, but it must be said that of the six hits he gave, they were four bases and four RBIs.

The athletic outfielder, one of the best players in the league in the last decade, has struggled this season to reach the famous “Mendoza Line” (.200), a qualification that the great chronicler Bienvenido Rojas often highlights in his writings. .

Lewin Díaz, a terror in the “All Against All” (.281-3-11), especially against the Eagles, has not been frightening so far this time.

The Elephants’ first baseman has been slow in attacking, as shown by the cold numbers, two singles in 10 at-bats, for an average of .200, which is shown by centerfielder Cristian Paché, a defensive premier whose pending task is to also damage when he steps up to the plate to establish himself in the Grand Circus.

Less ugly, but also ugly, has been Robinson Canó (.250, 3-for-12, one trailer without a walk received).
