2010 South American Games
The 2010 South American Games were the 9th edition of the South American Games and were held in Medellin, Colombia. The baseball competition was run from March 22 through March 27, 2010. News sources stated in February that the event was canceled due to not enough participants - only Argentina, Colombia and the Netherlands Antilles had registered teams. Venezuela registered a team, though, only days before the Games began, to give a compliment of four teams, and Venezuela would go on to win the event.
- Venezuela 5, Netherlands Antilles 4 - The Antilles get off to a strong start to what will be a disappointing tourney, taking the favored Venezuelans into extra innings before falling. Venezuelan reliever Carlos Mori threw four shutout innings of one-hit ball to rescue the game for the Venezuelans, who get their offense from CF Jonathan Sivira (3 R) and 1B Víctor Marapacuto (2 for 2, 2 BB, 3 RBI). SS Johnny Gregorius drives in two for the Antilles while reliever Sherwenne Antersijn takes the defeat.
- Colombia 5, Argentina 2 - The hosts start strong against Argentinian ace Federico Tanco (their only pitcher with minor league experience), while Yesid Salazar tossed six shutout innings for Colombia. 2B Ismael Castro homers and drives in a couple for Colombia.
