Nicaragua beats Cuba 4-3 in baseball friendlyHAVANA, Cuba, Jul 15 (acn) Nicaragua beat 4-3 Cuba in the third of four friendly games, and thus already won the match that will end tomorrow in that Central American nation.

The first game took place last Friday and was a 1-1 tie, while on Saturday the local side won 4-1.
Nicaragua´s last victory in such series over Cuba dated back from September 30, 2001, with a score of 5-1 at Havana´s Latinoamericano stadium.
In this third game of the match, Cuba went ahead when scoring twice in the first inning, thanks to hit by Cesar Prieto and double by Yurien Vizcaino, as well as taking advantage of a walk to Yosvani Alarcon and an error by catcher Leonardo Ortiz.
But the host squad heavily hit off the young Cuban starting pitcher Yosimar Cousin, who allowed eight hits and four earned runs in only 2.1 innings, thus taking the loss.
Cuba reduced distances in the fourth frame with single by Yoelkis Guibert, best batter of the team who batted 2 for 3, including a walk; but they couldn´t do anything else against four Nicaraguan relievers; one of them, Berman Espinoza, earned the win when pitching 2.2 scoreless innings.
The last game of the bilateral match will be played at the Yamil Rios Ugarte stadium, in the city of Rivas.
