With the certainty of having first hit his opponent in the lands of Cándido González, the Crocodiles of Matanzas, they will be late to find another victory to return more comfortable to their properties.
The experienced pitcher, Noelvis Entenza, once Elephant and Capitalino, will be in charge of opening the match, as confirmed on Saturday by director Armando Ferrer, who seems to trust his record in play-off games.
Although he did not record relevant averages during the season, he won 6 and lost 4, now Crocodile showed his powers with excellent relief during the third game of the semifinal against Las Tunas.
After employing Yamichel Pérez, the Matanzas manager, at the close of the first match, he chooses one of his best cards in the bullpen, accustomed to pitching in this type of encounter.
In the play-offs of the 2016-2017 season Entensa launched as a reinforcement of Granma precisely in the second match against Ciego de Ávila, after eliminating the Matanzas squad led by Victor Mesa.
Although he seems not to have the vote of confidence of the fans, the truth is that at 33 years old, the scientist adds historically in 15 seasons 89 wins and 76 losses, a fact that makes him one of the most relevant Ferrer staff.
“I am passionate about these play-off games because I play with a lot of tension and that causes me to have to give 120 percent; I will look for each out, I will give myself to the fullest, I am sure that I am the man for this encounter, ”said the pitcher.
Entenza returned this season to the National Series with the Matanzas team, after dressing the shirt of two other teams, since his arrival on Yumurina land he assures himself as if it had always been Crocodile.
“I’m going to get the grip, this is my team and we want to win. The time has come to put my grain of sand to take the trophy. ”
If yesterday in Cándido González was announced as a pitcher’s duel with experience in the national team, today the dispute will be between youth and experience, as Noelvis Entenza will face Yousimar Cousin.
