BOXSCORE

Guevara had his best outing this season, allowing two runs and six hits in 6 innings. After running into some trouble in the third, where he gave up a one-out single to Yadiel Fernández with two on bases and then a sacrifice fly to rookie Norel González, the right-hander allowed only one more hit, to give Ciego the opportunity of winning its nine of the last 10 games.

Ciego pushed the tying run across in the eight off closer Félix Fuentes. Alfonso singled to center provided the run that tie the game against Fuentes and send it to extrainnings.

And the decision came in the bottom of the tenth. José García singled, Abdel Civil was intentionally walked, and when Jorge Alfonso hit a ground ball to shorstop Moreira, a throw to first and an error allowed Ciego to score the final run of the game.

Cano came on in the seventh with no outs and Danier Moreira on first, to complete four scoreless innings allowing three hits while struck out three and walked two, earning his third win of the season.

Lefty reliever Ramón Licor (0-1) was charged with the loss.

The win keept Ciego de Avila (9-3) rolling in the first place of the 2014-15 Cuban season with a 9-3 (.750) record.
