The Yucatán Leones swept the team’s first regular-season series, beating Tabasco 6-2.
Former major league starter Logan Ondrusek made his LMB debut as he took the mound for the first five innings, allowing two runs and five strikeouts. The victory saw Sebastián Valle’s second home run of the season and the debut of outfielder Norberto Obeso.
The first run of the night came in the bottom of the first on an Art Charles double that drove Alex Liddi across the plate, making an early 1-0 lead for the Leones.
In the bottom of the fourth, Valle hit one out of the park for his second homer of the season, as Yadir Drake crossed the plate, making the score 3-0 to start the fifth inning.
Drake made the defensive play of the night when in the top of the fifth — with two outs and runners on third and first — he threw from center-right field to get the advancing runner from third out as he slid home — bringing the score to 3-2 Leones as Obeso stepped to the plate at the bottom of the sixth.
With runners on third and first, Obeso stepped to the plate, hitting a fly between the centerfielder and left fielder, driving in both base runners making the final score 6-2 and the first series sweep for the Leones this season.
