First Matanceros with three home runs in one inning.

On Sunday, May 5th, the espirituanos Frederich Cepeda, Alexis Varona and Dunieski Barroso hit consecutive home runs in the first inning against Noelvis Entenza, from Matanzas.

 

Last Sunday, May 5th, Frederich Cepeda, Alexis Varona and Dunieski Barroso hit consecutive home runs in the first inning against Noelvis Entenza, from Matanzas, at the Victoria stadium in Giron, to equal the national record against a pitcher.

The same feat was achieved three days later (May 8th), in the fourth inning by Robert Luis Delgado, Yoris Luis Rodriguez and Over Luis Cremet against Mayabeque pitcher Albert Valladares, at Van Troi stadium.

According to data from the national statistician Osmany Pedraza, it was the 13th occasion that this happened in our Series, but the first time that it happened twice in one season.

The first pitcher to receive three consecutive homers in one inning was Dagoberto Rodriguez, from Ciego de Avila, connected by the members of the Forestales team, Luis Crespo, Bienvenido Castanedo and Jose Antonio Garcia, on January 20th, 1982 at the Paquito Espinosa stadium, in Moron.

In the Selective Series, the first shooter to hit three consecutive home runs was Abelardo Guerra, of Mineros, at the Victoria de Girón stadium, off the bats of Fernando Sánchez, Lázaro Junco and Julio Germán Fernández, on March 16th, 1986, in the fourth inning.

Matanzas’ Lino Betancourt, Orestes Noroña and Inocente Aparicio were the first to hit three homers in an inning, but NOT consecutively in the National Series. It was at the
Guillermón Moncada stadium, in the V National Series from 1965 to 1966, year of the debut of the Henequeneros team, led by Juan Bregio Moreno.

The three «bambinazos» of the Yumurinos came in the third inning. Lino hit it with two runners on against Juan Valle Carmona, followed by Orestes Noroña, with the bases clean, then Ernesto Verdecía came in to relieve him, who dominated José Pérez and Tomás Soto, but could not avoid Inocente Aparicio’s home run.

It was the second game of the doubleheader won by the black-and-white team, since the opening game ended 3-2 with Jesús Torriente, who got the win with a save for Gaspar Pérez, the loss for Roberto Valdés and the historic three home run game ended 8×7. Curro» Pérez won in relief and Emilio Vargas lost.
