The second game was won Wednesday night 12-5 by Pinar del Rio to even the series. Catch our story here a little later.
Matanzas took the opener on Monday 5-3 in the best of seven series. Game two is also in Matanzas.
With the weather threatening, the game began on Tuesday with Pinar taking a 1-0 lead in the second inning on two singles from Yosvani Peraza and Lorenzo Quintana followed by a failed sacrifice and then an RBI single from red-hot David Castillo.
