On February 7 2011 — The Yaquis de Obregón win the Caribbean Series for the first time in their history after beating Anzoátegui, 3 – 2, to finish with a 4 and 2 record. They have to wait for the result of the second game to celebrate however, but Caguas’s 3 – 0 shutout of Toros del Este means both teams finish with a 3 and 3 record. Series MVP Jorge Vazquez’s two-run home run off Seth Etherton is the big blow for the Mexicans. P Alberto Castillo gets off to a rough start, giving up 2 runs in 4 innings, but the four relievers who succeed him slam the door shut, with Luis Ayala getting the save. In the second game, Raul Valdes pitches 7 2/3 scoreless innings to end the Dominicans’ hopes in the tournament.
