Mérida, Yuc. (elgordogringo.com) 24 de June 2021- A three-run inning in the eighth was not enough to overcome an earlier eight-run rally that Oaxaca strung together in the fifth inning resulting in a 9-4 leones loss as Oaxaca takes the series.
The leones failed to take the lead at any point in the game; in fact, the final score makes it appear closer than it was. The Leones was scoreless till a sacrifice fly from Art Charles saw the first leones runner cross the plate in the last eleven innings of the series.
The eighth saw Luis ¨Pepon¨Juarez step to the plate and split the fielders for a single, driving in Flores and Lopez. Later in the eighth, Obeso stepped to the plate, driving in ¨Pepon¨Juarez, bringing the game to 9-3 Oaxaca.
The Leones will play the second place, Pericos de Puebla, tonight. They will attempt to overtake them in the division standings; starting pitchers this weekend are Logan Ondrusek, Rolando Valdez, and Yoanner Negrín. Tickets are now available at superboletos.com, stadium ticket offices, and Leoneshop Plaza Altabrisa.
