𝙎𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙍𝙚𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩: @USMNT x @MLS

Just one player of the starting XI against Wales came from a team in the #MLS. But the bench was stacked with MLS talent that could hurt England tonight.

Here are a few to watch out for. 🧵

#ThreeLions | #USMNT

💫 Dak’s 88% completion rate in Week 11 was the highest recorded in a single game (min 15 attempts) in the whole of 2022 so far.

⭐️ The #Cowboys are getting hot at the right time, but Coach of the Year contender Brian Daboll has the #Giants playing elite football.

The Clásico Venezolano was packed with fans during a dramatic and exciting Wednesday night, as Los Melenudos scored in the tenth inning to get a 5-4 win over Navegantes del Magallanes.

The debutant Harold Castro, scored the first run of the match after José Rondón hit a double to take the lead 1-0. But Daniel Mayora scored a 2-run home run to put Magallanes ahead 2-1 in the second inning.

In the fourth inning, Lenyn Sosa (.277) hit a double and level the score at 2-2. Wilfrido Jiménez with a strike out leave Pereda in third base to miss the great chance to take the lead again.

In the fifth inning, Magallanes put Álvarez at pitcher. A Magallanes error put Castro on scoring position, and Tejada hit a single to set Castro off and score for Leones del Caracas, making it 3-2. Mayora (.204) stepped up with a fly ball to the left field, letting Rosario score from third base to level the score once again.

Leones ran out winners in extra innings thanks to a moonshot from Alexander Palma and some magic from Ferrini, the league leader in batting average (.392).

Around the LVBP

The sixth week of the Liga Venezolana de Béisbol Profesional (LVBP) has shown us the battle for the top, between Leones del Caracas (16-9) and Cardenales de Lara (17-7). Cardenales lead the table with a 1.5 game lead.

On Tuesday, Leones del Caracas – one of the most popular teams in the country and winners of 20 championships in their history – had a great chance to take the lead. But Cardenales defeated them 6-2 at Estadio Olímpico de Caracas to remain at the top.

Ronald Acuna Jr has a big debut

The Atlanta Braves outfielder of the MLB, Ronald Acuñar Jr, made his debut with a 3-run Home Run for Tiburones de La Guaira in the eighth inning to lead a victory over Navegantes del Magallanes on Tuesday.

Check this out for a debut strike:
