HAVANA TIMES — The second half of the Cuban baseball season is well underway and Cienfuegos has moved into the top spot among the eight competing teams. HT was on hand recently for the final game of a three-game series with Havana’s Industriales hosting Cienfuegos.
The series proved disastrous for the home team which was swept by scores of 15-12, 6-1 and 7-6 on the final day in a game won by Yormani Socarrás with a save from Duniel Ibarra. Yudier Rodríguez took the loss for Industriales.
The current 2012-2013 season continues until May 22, after which the playoffs will begin.
