The last series saw the Olmecas De Tobasco overcome the Leones in back-to-back games leading to the series opener last night with the Tigres De Quintina Roo, who handed the Leones their third straight, and the fourth total, loss of the season.

The former major league pitcher Jake Thomson started things from the mound allowing a single run in the second inning. Then the Leones put on a defensive display for the rest of the game, not allowing any more runs to score — but the Leone’s offense struggled to find purchase against the Tigres pitching rotation.

The biggest excitement of the night came when the plate umpire — who all night was calling very friendly strikes for the Tigres’ pitching crew — almost game to blows after a Luis “Pepón” Jurez strike that looked to be too inside.

Yoanner “Asere” Negrín will take the mound Saturday for a victory that would put him in the record book as the third most-winning pitcher in the history of Yucatán. The game will start at 5:45 p.m., and tickets are available at superboletos.com, stadium ticket offices, and Leoneshop Plaza Altabrisa.
