Villahermosa, Tab. (elgordogringo.com.mx) July 22, 2021.- Olmecas pitcher Luis Escobar threw for six solid innings to give the Olmecas de Tabasco a 4-1 victory over the Lions of Yucatán this Thursday.
The last clash of the series was favorable for the local ninth that took advantage of an oversight by the defeated Yoanner Negrín to set up a rally in the fifth inning that ended up giving them the victory.
Luis Escobar was solid on the hill during his six-inning sojourn, where he only allowed one run and a couple of hits to secure the win.
Herlis Rodríguez opened the board in the third inning with an RBI double. Still, the Olmecas came alive in the fifth, thanks to hits from Rodríguez himself and Edwin García, as well as a producing hit from Ronnier Mustelier.
For their part, the kings of the jungle tried to do damage throughout the game but could only come up with a run from Yadir Drake in the seventh inning.
This Friday, the action will return to Merida as Jake Thompson takes the mound for the Leones as they take on the Tigres De Quintana roo.
