      The Cibao Eagle (actual champions) play in Santiago, 2nd biggest city in the country... It's a 1 hour trip from Puerto Plata... Actually, Puerto Plata is supposed to have an expansion team (The Mariners) but still hasn´t started

          Eagles, Lions, get closer to the top

          In the first sellout crowd of the season for the Eagles, they got an incredible performance of Bernie Castro, who was a single shy of hitting for the cycle, and beat the league leading Tigers 7-5. The winning pitcher was Britt Reames, while the loser was Felix Diaz. Arnaldo Muñoz got the save.

          The Eagles' bullpen almost messed up again, and after leading 7-1, allowed 4 runs in the 7th, but could get the final out with bases loaded in that same inning.

          The Lions beat the Stars at home 3-2. And the Bulls came from behind, and save their ace Raul Valdez of another loss, after surrendering 3 runs in 3 innings, the Bulls made 2 in the 9th, and beat the Giants 6-5. Eddie Garabito drove in 4

            3 way tie at the top

            The Lions pitching manage to shut down the tigers offense almost completely, allowing just one hit in 9 innings, and beat the tigers 2-0.

            In Santiago, the Eagles kept the good streak going, and pounded the Giants 15-9, behind 2 homers of debuting catcher Mike Napolis...

            The Bulls continue to win, and beat the stars 5-4. The winning hit was once again hit by Eddy Garabito.

                  The teams from the capital remaing at the top

                  Behind HR by Angel Peña, the Lions won their 5th straight, and again the Eagles' Bullpen couldn't hang on, and lost at home 8-3.

                  The other team from Santo Domingo, the Tigers, shutout the Bulls 3-0. Aaron Heilman pitched 6.2 scoreless innings to take the win. Yhency Brazoban made the save.

                  In San Pedro, the Stars won a pitching duel against the Giants 2-1

                    Has Heilman been a regular starter, and how has his control been?
                    Lets get Eddie Basinski elected to the Polish Sports Hall of Fame.

                        Thank You for the stats. As a Mets fanit's good to see Heilman doin well. There has been some question whether he would be used as a starter or reliever. Apparently the Mets have asked that he be used as a starter.I have a question, you mentioned that the rosters are always changing,what determines who plays for which team? Thanks.

                          Free agency doesn't exist in dominican republic... Each year there is a rookie draft, to asign each player to a dominican team for the rest of his life (unless his traded or left free).

                          For example... Pedro Martinez played for my team Licey, for a last time in the 94-95 season... He hasn't pitched since, but still, he's a player of the tigers... If he ever wills to play in the dominican (as he's announcing he'll do this year because of the wbc) he has to pitch with licey...

                          So, if Pedro wants to pitch, you have to take one of the rookie pitchers out of the roster in order to place a major leaguer...

                          That's what I meant... Most of the players coming from MLB take a rest after the MLB season... When they decide to play, is between 2nd half november, and december (2nd half of the season)... The more "star status" you have, the later you start playing, since you know you are going to have an opening role anyhow...

                          The best example is Miguel Tejada... If you think is incredible his streak of consecutive games in the majors, you'll be surprised to know that he has played in every single season for his cibao eagles since 98... This year in the preseason press conference, he called the manager and told the audience "guys (refering to the team), do a good job keeping the team in qualifying position, so i can rest a little longer and don't have to go help you guys soon"

                          If you need any more info, I'll gladly inform you

                            Edwin Encarnacion hits for cycle, 4 runs in Eagles' Win

                            In an amazing display of offense, Edwin Encarnacion (3B) hit for the cycle, and scored each time, to help the Eagles finally beat the Bulls 12-6...

                            The Eagles couldn't gain on the leaders, since the Tigers won their game 5-4, even though they made 6 errors... Yhency Brazoban made the save (8).

                            The Lions beat the Giants 4-3

                              Lions unstoppable!! 7th straight win puts them in first

                              The lions continue their incredible streak, by beating the stars 12-7. Felix Jose hit a Homerun in the losing end, his 59th of his dominican career, tying the all time record with Rico Carty... His next homer will put him as the sole member of the 60HR club...

                              In the other hand, Juan Senreiso hit 2 singles, and had 3RBI's to help the Bulls get past the Giants, who lost their 7th straight 13-4

                              The game of the day between the rivals Eagles and Licey was PPD by rain, and is going to be played today... Felix Diaz will start for the Tigers, and Julian Tavarez is suposed to start for the Eagles
