"We love baseball," Paez said through an interpreter, "and we play with passion," Some serious bats haven't hurt, either. A three-run homer by shortstop Luis Urias and a solo shot by first baseman Luis Millan paved the way Sunday for starting pitcher Gerardo Haro, who went the distance, allowing three hits against U.S. champion Ocala, Fla., in a 7-1 win before a record crowd estimated at more than 5,000 at the Ripken Youth Baseball Academy in Aberdeen.
