Industriales, only undefeated team in Cuban Season

Whether or not the manager Lázaro Vargas is actually the reason for the win streak Industriales is having during the beginning of the 54th National Series, is up for debate, but one thing is not. The Industriales are playing well and their pitchers are the best in the league.

On Sunday, Lourdes Gourriel, Jr. and Frank Camilo Morejón homered. Morejón drove in four runs, and the Industriales Lions beat Santiago de Cuba 7-5.

Brandon Delgado allowed a run and five hits in five innings to earn the win in his first start of the season, and the Lions (6-0) remained baseball’s only undefeated team.

Alexander Rodríguez got the final six outs for his second save of the season.

After two series, Industriales is the only undefeated team in the 54th Cuban National Series.

The Blue Lions swept the Santiago de Cuba Wasps at Latinoamericano Stadium in Havana over the weekend, and now the team exhibits a 6-0 record, moving into the third series of the tournament.

The key for the team managed by Lázaro Vargas is the pitching staff.

Lefties Pedro Durán and Ian Rendón are turning in solid starts, and Noelvis Entenza is dealing the way the Industriales had always hoped he would. Also, with a bit of luck, another young arm, in RHP Ramón Peña, becomes the fifth starter the team needs.

Industriales pitching staff shows an ERA of 1.50 (9-54.0), the best in the league, and the team is also leading the saves with 6.

Industriales will try to extend the streak against the Holguín Cubs heading into Tuesday night's opener at Latinoamericano Stadium in Havana.
