The Spanish Division de Honor is through six weeks of play so far after today. So far the Astros Valencia are leading the way with a 10-2 record after sweeping their weekend series with San Inazio Bilbao. Right behind the Astros are the Tenerife Marlins at 9-3. The Marlins were leading the league but dropped two over the weekend to CB Barcelona who sites right behind the Marlins in third place at 8-4.
It appears the league will be a three team race as no other club is above .500 at this point in the season. However, there is a lot of baseball left to be played with eight more weeks to go.
The game of the week might have been the first game between the Marlins and CB Barcelona. Barcelona used two errors in the bottom of the ninth to stun the Marlins and pick up the win.
Both teams picked up great pitching performances from their starters. Elian Leyva tossed eight strong innings giving up just a single run while striking out eleven for Barcelona, but he did not factor into the decision. Eric Paez picked up the win for Barcelona pitching a scoreless ninth. Yorfrank Lopez pitched great for the Marlins giving up only two runs, both unearned, while striking out nine taking his first loss of the season.
