Panama’s ninth beat Costa Rica 11-1 today at the start of baseball at the XI Central American Sports Games in Managua.
The Panamanians cemented their triumph on the arm of right-hander Harold Araúz, who worked six innings of a touchdown, three hits, including a double, a walk and ‘struck out’ four.
The right-hander Manuel Campos had no difficulty in the last two chapters, as a relief, by only conceding a walk.
The defeat fell on the Costa Rican shooter José Díaz.
The careers of the Panamanian cast were in the low of the fourth, five in the low of the fifth episode, one more in the seventh and closed with four rayistas in the eighth.
The Ticos would score their only career at the top of the fifth chapter.
Rodrigo Merón helmsman of the Panamanian ninth stressed that the team started the game somewhat lethargic, but was taking the step as the episodes occurred.
“The team started the game somewhat lazy, but in the end they got the castes,” said the Panamanian director.
The baseball day is later completed with the games Guatemala against Honduras and El Salvador against Nicaragua. EFE
