Beltran versus Landa in 2019 IRT Florida Pro-Am final

Alvaro Beltran won another tie-breaker at the 2019 International Racquetball Tour (IRT) Florida Pro-Am in Sarasota, Florida, as he upset IRT #4 Andree Parrilla, 4-15, 15-7, 11-10, in the semi-finals. Beltran - currently ranked 6th on the IRT - will play IRT #3 Alejandro Landa in the final, as Landa upset IRT #2 Rocky Carson in the other semi-final, 15-5, 15-7.

It's Beltran's 2nd final of the season, as he was runner up to IRT #1 Kane Waselenchuk in Portland in December. Beltran defeated Waselenchuk in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Landa will play his first final since April 2018, when he defeated Beltran in Cincinnati to win the 2nd event of his career. Landa's record in finals is 2-1, with all of those happening last season. In contrast, Beltran has been in 40 finals, winning three times.

The final will be Saturday night at 7:00 PM Eastern.
