Day 4, Game 2

Hell’s getting a little nippy, and I swear I thought I saw a winged creature of the porcine pursuasion pass above the stadium a few minutes ago. Mexico has actually played its way into a close and late situation! The Mexico-Puerto Rico game is tied 2-2 in the top of the 7th. It’s not for lack of trying though, as Mexico has committed 2 errors, one of which gave up a run.

[Update] Puerto Rico beats Mexico 4-2 in extras (10 innings).

The umpires lost control of this one.  Erubiel Durazo was ejected in the 5th for first arguing balls and strikes, and then throwing his helmet in the home plate umpire’s general direction.  In the 10th, Mexican outfielder Jon Webber was thrown out for arguing balls and strikes.  As there were few fans in the stands at this point, we were able to hear Webber’s complaint up in the auxiliary press box: “You’re fucking terrible!”

Webber had a rough day.  In an earlier at-bat, he lost his grop on the bat, and sent it flying into the stands where it hit a woman walking to her seat.  The woman fell over, and was taken from the stadium for x-rays.  No updates on her status, or whether she’ll be able to attend today’s games.

Puerto Rico’s win mathematically eliminates Venezuela from a shot at the 2007 Caribbean Series title.
