The Stars raised their winning streak to five by defeating Tigres del Lece 2-0 in the corresponding match of the 2023-2024 fall-winter baseball tournament, which was held at the Tetelo Vargas Stadium in this city.

Rookie Austin Davis was the “star player” for the Stars by throwing five innings and a third on just two hits, two walks and seven of the 20 batters he faced.

The victory strengthened the Green Team in first place with a record of 7-1, increasing the gap over the Blue Team to two games, which has a record of 5-3.

The Stars' pitching yielded 23 innings without allowing any runs from the opponent. That streak began in the sixth inning of last Wednesday's game against the Cibao Giants, whom they beat in extra innings 5-4, while on Thursday they beat the Giants 3-0.

The all-against-all campaign stops this Saturday, but resumes on Sunday, when the Stars travel to San Francisco de Macorís to face Gigantes del Cibao at the Julián Javier Stadium starting at 5pm.

The team, led by Fernando Tatis Sr., took advantage of two errors in the same action in the seventh inning to earn its fourth straight victory and the seventh with the last three wins in the regular series at Tetillo Vargas Stadium.

Miguel Sano was transferred and Alfredo Reyes ran in his place. Raimel Tapia scores the third goal, defender Dauel Lugo takes a poor shot initially, and Reyes scores from the start. Then, outfielder Magnoris Sierra made a bad shot at the plate, which Tapia took advantage of to get in the run as well.

Davis was replaced by Roman Mendes (6), Gerson Moreno (7), José José (7), Luis Gonzalez (8) and Ronel Blanco (9).

Meanwhile, Jake Thompson started for the Tigers by pitching two and two-thirds innings with three hits and two strikeouts. He was accompanied by Carlos Vargas (3), Williams Jerez (4), Jonathan Aru (5), Luis Frias (6), Hansel Robles (7) and Jean Carlos Mejía (8).
