Round Robin Standings
At the end of the 20th and last day of this Round Robin, the caribes and navegantes closed the Round Robin with a 10-6 record, while the cardenales finished in 3rd place with 9-7, while the leones closed in 4th place with a 6-10 record and the tigres in last place in the semifinal standings with 5-11. The hopes of the Lara State team rested on a combination of results that would force an extra game for them: they had to beat Anzoátegui and hope that the lions would make themselves felt in Valencia. The former was completed, but Caracas could not sink the ship. Friends, we have already defined the Grand Final of the 2021-2022 LVBP Season. For the third time filibusteros and anzoatiguenses will fight, after the title of the sailors in the 2013-2014 campaign and subsequent consecration of the tribe in 2014-2015. One team is going for its 13th title (Magallanes) and the other for its 5th title (Caribes). For me Caribes is the opponent to beat without a doubt and starts as favorite because this is their 3rd straight final and they have the experience, however, Magallanes won the series in the regular round (6-1), and in the round robin (3-1) and they have been inspired since the beginning of the season. But it will surely be a very close final between both teams as it has been this season. Starting this Tuesday in Puerto La Cruz, the team from Anzoátegui will receive the team from Carabobo to begin their decisive battle with a maximum of 7 games to win 4. The most regular team of the tournament (Navegantes) against the best of the last years (Caribes), as a last fact, in those two previous finals between the aborigines and the Buccaneers, the champion was decided in 5 games. The diamond is ready for a Final of great emotions.
