Yokohama BayStars infielder Yulieski Gurriel iced a 3-2 win by Cuba’s Pinar del Rio over Mexico’s Tomateros de Culiacan in Sunday’s Caribbean Series final with an eighth-inning home run.

Yomiuri Giants outfielder Frederich Cepeda was named MVP of the Series, which also includes teams from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. Cuba, which rejoined the competition last year after a 54-year layoff, saw its team win for the first time since 1960.
