It all comes down to tonight in the Dominican Winter League, as the best-of-nine finals are all tied up at four games a piece.
Last night, Aguilas forced the decisive game with a 7-3 victory over Licey. They scored four runs in the top of the first and never looked back.
With the bases loaded and two outs in the first, former KC Royal Orlando Calixte cleared the bases with a double. Free agent Angel Franco followed with an RBI single. Franco went 2-for-4, as he started at second base.
Aguilas closer Josh Judy (Mexico) continued his dominance in the DWL by inducing three ground outs after a leadoff walk in the ninth. He has yet to allow an earned run in the DWL.
Game 9 will be played tonight at Aguilas, as the two teams fight for the DWL title and a spot in the Caribbean Series.
