The representative of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Series, the Tigres del Licey lost all their first four games to Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela in the Caribbean Series taking place in Culiacán, Mexico. They were the first team to be eliminated in the first round.
The DR lost 4-0 to Cuba, 7-2 to Mexico, 10-2 to Puerto Rico and 4-3 to Venezuela.
Team manager Audo Vicente said the team was affected by the absence of key players that did not make the trip, in particular he mentioned Juan Francisco, Yamaico Navarro and Emilio Bonifacio. He said: “This is the team we have and we have to respect the decisions these players made to not play because of family or Major League team commitments,” he said.
This makes 10 consecutive games the Dominican Republic teams have lost in the recent Caribbean Series.
