It's Yankees/Red Sox times 10 . . . with a continual soundtrack you can dance to.

Tony Batista's home run tied the game at 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth. That was the last run scored until the top of the 18th, when Ronny Cedeno doubled in Luis Maza to give Venezuela a 3-2 lead.

Cabrera told Venezuelan journalists the Marlins didn't want him to play in the Series . . . even though he played from the second week of December until the Venezuelan Winter League finals. The good news is Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero is here in San Juan, though he will not be on the active roster. Montero was recently married, and the trip to Puerto Rico is apparently some sort of honeymoon.
