Cuba lost to Canada in its debut at the 2019 Premier 12 Baseaball Tournament

Victim once again of its extremely poor batting, Cuba fell against Canada, in its debut for Group C of the 2019 WBSC Premier 12 Baseball Tournament, based in South Korea.

At the Gocheok Sky Dome, in Seoul, the Caribbean squad was shackled by right-hander Phillippe Aumont, who had previously beaten them at the Can-Am League and now won 3-0 after pitching eight scoreless innings allowing only two hits, with nine strikeouts and one walk.

The lost went to Carlos Juan Viera who didn´t do it bad as he surrendered only one earned run, including three hits and four walks, in 5.1 innings, while Scott Mathieson earned the save after pitching a scoreless ninth frame.

Canada´s two other runs were scored against Cuba´s ace reliever, lefty Livan Moinello, who allowed two runs, including one single and three walks, in 2/3 of an inning.

After this initial defeat, Cuba is almost obliged to defeat Australia today and on Friday the local South Korea, monarch of the 1st Premier 12, in 2015.

This contest involves 12 sides divided into three groups, and the best two of each pool will access the Super Round, which will be held from November 11 to 16 at the Chiba Marine Stadium and the Tokyo Dome, both in Japan.

Mexico (3-0) and United States (2-1) already got their berths by Group A, while Chinese Taipei and Japan did the same in Pool B despite there is one round left but they both have balance of 2-0 while Puerto Rico and Venezuela (0-2) are already eliminated.

The 2019 WBSC Premier 12 Baseball Tournament grants two tickets to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
