Cuba, left homework even in escaping from the brink… What about the lack of concentration in the beginning?
Cuba, who competed in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), escaped from the edge of the cliff. However, the lack of concentration remained a homework to be solved.
Cuba won 13-4 in the third match of the group stage against Panama in Group A of the 2023 WBC preliminary held at the Intercontinental Baseball Stadium in Taichung, Taiwan on the 10th. Cuba had lost both of their previous group stage matches. If they lost against Panama that day, they would be eliminated from the group stage regardless of the results of the remaining matches. I was literally driven to the edge of a precipice.
Cuba got off to a good start by scoring the first points in the game. Alfredo Despaine in the top of the first inning and Yadil Mujica in the top of the second inning hit an RBI double to lead 2-0.
The first run was in the bottom of the second inning. Starting pitcher Ronald Bolaños was greatly shaken. He allowed a 2-4 comeback by giving up a timely hit along with a two-run home run.
The process of Cuba’s conceding was linked to a lack of concentration in the early stages. In the bottom of the second inning, third baseman Yoann Moncada threw a ball from lead batter Jose Ramos, providing an excuse for the run.
If there were complacent plays in defense, there were unfortunate plays that were difficult to understand in base run. In the top of the second inning, when the team was leading 2-0, batter Roel Santos attempted a bunt with first out and second base, but was unsuccessful. In the meantime, Mujica thought the bunt was successful and headed to third base, but belatedly returned to second base. result is out. The chance to escape was gone. 카지노
It was more serious in the beginning of the 4th inning when they were behind 2-4. The 2nd base runner and the 3rd base runner’s breath did not match. In the top of the 4th inning, with 2 out and 2 base, Santos hit a heavy hit. In the meantime, second base runner Yadir Drake went around third base and dug into the home, but failed to score because the opponent’s relay play was blocked. When looking at the slow screen again, it was confirmed that the third base base coach signaled to Drake to stop, but the runner went home without seeing it, revealing a lack of detail.
Cuba scored 4 points in the 6th inning, 5 points in the 7th inning, and 2 points in the 8th inning. They scored a lot of goals in the middle and late half of the game and won 13-4. However, the lack of concentration that caused the crisis at the beginning of the game remained as homework.
