Águilas del Zulia stopped a losing streak of four losses after beating the Bravos de Margarita 4-2, in a match played this Wednesday at the Luis Aparicio “El Grande” Stadium in Maracaibo, reported sports media.
The rapacious team unleashed a nine-hit attack, which they combined with impeccable defense. His infield made up to three double plays.
The insulars also dispatched nine hits, but their defense incurred a couple of sins.
The Dominican Porfirio López started for the eaglets and required the help of five relievers. The lefty Ismael Guillón was one of those fire extinguishers and in the end he won the victory to leave his record at 4-0 with immaculate effectiveness. Silvino Bracho came on in the ninth for his eighth save, after working that scoreless inning with two strikeouts.
With this result, the Eagles improve their record to 11-15 and now play 7-7 in their Marabino nest. While the Braves are now left with a record of 11-15, clinging to fifth place in the tournament.
