Former Major League pitcher Radhames Liz made his Liones debut Wednesday in spectacular fashion, throwing 98-mph strikes — speeds unseen at any LMB game I’ve seen this season — accounting for four strikeouts and allowing a single run through his five innings.

The first runs for the Leones came in the bottom of the fourth when Sebastian Valle hit down the third-base line drove in Art Charles and Yadir Drake. The Leones went on to lead 2-0 at the top of the fifth.

The Olmecas scored their first run of the night at the top of the fifth, bringing Drake to the plate knocking a line drive to bring in Luis Juarez, and advancing Charles to second and himself to first. A Valle walk resulted in bases loaded for the Leones as Walter Ibarra took the plate driving in Charles and Drake, bringing the last scores for the Leones in the night.

The Olmecas scored three runs at the top of the ninth, bringing an end to the game with a score of 6-4 Leones.

The last game of the home opening series will be a pitching duel between Olmecas pitcher Nicolás Heredia and Leones Logan Ondrusek, who will make his 2021 season debut for the leones.
