Super Bowl Sunday February 7th! The game starting at 6pm,   final game of the 2016 Caribbean World Series. Mexico’s Mazatlan Venados vs  Venezuela’s Aragua Tigres game starting at 2:30pm.

The game was almost like watching Game 7 of 2003 American League Championship game between New York Yankees/Boston Red Sox, and Game 7 of the 1960 World Series between the New York Yankees/Pittsburgh Pirates. Ending in dramatic fashion!

Mexico struck first taking 2-0 lead into the Fifth Inning. Then Venezuela came back scoring two runs in the top of the Fifth inning and then added two more runs in the top of the Seventh Inning to lead 4-2. Unfortunately for Venezuela their bullpen received an F, for in the bottom of the 7th inning Mexico scored two runs to tie the game at 4-4.

Mexico’s bullpen received an A when they held the team scoreless and hitless until the bottom of the 9th inning. That’s when Jorge Vazquez came to bat in the bottom of the 9th inning and just like Bill Mazoroski did in the 1960 World Series Pittsburgh Pirates vs New York Yankees. Vazquez hit a game winning home-run!   Mexico wins their third Caribbean Series title in 4 years. Here’s another thing Mexico would win all six games in the series!

After watching the game one can this reporter can honestly say can’t wait till next year. Watch out for next Super Bowl you might’ve met your match. Now in April 2016 Baseball season begins! LOVE THIS GAME!
