Oaxaca, Oax. (elgordogringo.com.mx) June 30, 2021.- Dalton Rodríguez looked like an assassin from the mound after giving up a single run in the first inning. He was supported by the return of the early season phenomenal Leone’s defense which enabled our offense to score 17 unanswered runs– including five homers– to beat the Oaxaca Warriors 17-1, as they go for a series sweep tonight.

In a game that 17! runners cross the plate, it will be difficult to give a play-by-play but I will highlight the best moments of the game!

The biggest play came in the sixth inning with 2 outs and bases loaded as Yadir Drake stepped to the plate with an 0-2 count detonating an absolute bomb across the central field wall for a grand slam bringing the, already commanding lead to 13-1. To start the fifth inning, Art Charles came to the plate with runners on second and third as he hit one over the right-field wall batting in 2 runs bringing the score to 5-1 as Leone’s centerfielder–who seemed to have returned to his Olympic form– scored on a solo home run.

The last game of the series will be tonight at 7:00 pm, with a pitching duel between two former major leaguers, who have come to shine with their countries pre-Olympic tournament this year, as Leones pitcher Radhamés Liz takes on former MLB All-Star Jair Jurrnjens . The game can be watched live on jonrón.tv, La Comadre 98.5 and SIPSE TV.


HR: A. Charles 2 (8), J. Jones (1), Y. Drake (8), M. Jaime (1) por YUC; R. Terrazas (6) por OAX
