Colombians beat Dominicans in Caribbean baseball

Santo Domingo.- Colombia is proclaimed champion in the Caribbean Series of baseball with the Caimanes de Barranquilla on Thursday with a score of 4-1 over the Gigantes del Cibao, from the Dominican Republic.

Colombia conquered the crown in the Caribbean Classic for the first time in its three-year history.

Elkin Alcalá (5.2 innings), Luis Moreno (0.1), Juan Díaz (1.1) and Rodrigo Benoit (1.2) combined to throw seven-hit ball to stun a Dominican team that had outscored every team in the Series, except for the Colombians, of whom they lost their two matches.

Effective immediately: All members of the Gigante organization including the upper brass are suspended and privileges are revoked. You will not defame nor embarrass the fatherland anymore with such stupid performance (like you did before with Trinidad & Tobago in the first World Classic). How can a visiting soccer country beat a baseball country in baseball and in its own land?
You, from the island, are not worth getting anymore money from any of us. You wasted time and trashed the hope of thousands in the Diaspora!
DR very SHAMEFUL of you! We will not forget this mess you made!

Because baseball is Dominican and it is one of the very few events that raises the name “DR” around the world (the fatherland shall always be honored and praised around the world). They eat, drink, and sleep with baseball and you just declared yourself not to be Dominican! Foreigner find another paper for your ignorance!

Never mind your island nation is corrupt with some poverty also…Never mind your nation extorts money from foreigners in order to invest in the DR, which helps the domincan people…Never mind that let’s punish some baseball players for not winning a game..maybe you should do what Saddam Hussein did when Iraq lost in soccer..imprison the team…its attitudes like yours that the DR will never reach its potential..the other poster is correct…its a F****** baseball game…grow up
