Spanish term or phrase: orientales (baseball team)
Latin American news broadcasts.

"También de béisbol, el equipo orientales derrotó anoche once por ocho a occidentales y aventajan la serie por dos triunfos a uno en la serie de las estrellas."

I am lacking the basics of American baseball here. What teams do "orientales" and "occidentales" refer to?

Thanks

Of course, \"occidentales\" would be the Western (All-Stars)

Quite often the terminology is \"Eastern League All-Stars\" and \"Western League All-Stars\" since the teams come from the Eastern League and Western League respectively of MLB (Major League Baseball)

agree  moken: Translation is perfect, though I think MLB is (or was) divided into American and National Leagues (AL/NL) and not sure they play a series but a one-off game. I think Japan has this type of division and plays an all-star series. :O) :O) :O)
