In the evening game the beautiful advertisement between the Cuba and Curaçao teams was seen. After Lou Prince song the Curaçao national anthem and the chairman of Febeko, Micheline Heyliger, threw the first ball, it was time for a beautiful game with the resignation for a final spot.
Geonel Ibanez scored the first run of the game: In a very nice way, by a homerun.
The answer from Curaçao came in the next inning when Edinho Meyer and Reangelo Beaumont came home after a RBI from Rojean Cleofa. The Cuban equalizer came soon: Edilse Silva, who scored 2-2. After that, Team Curaçao took the lead after Dennis Gustina scored.
With a firm hit to Frank Morejon in the seventh Cuban inning, pinchrunner Anibal Medina scored the equalizer.
It had to wait until the ninth inning before making a decision: Shurendell Mujica struck a three-base hit which resulted in Dennis Gustina’s score. With this the 3-4 was a fact. A little later in the game, it was the same Mujica who came over the home plate and realized the 3-5.
Despite the attacking pressure of Cuba in the equalizing inning, there was no more score: Curaçao plays at Japan at 13.30 for the resignation and the Netherlands is playing fourth/fifth place at 19.00.
