The Leones cut into the deficit in the second inning when Walter Ibarra hit an RBI single, driving in Leo Heras.

The Piratas later added a run in the third and two in the fifth. In the third, Henry Alejandro Rodriguez hit an RBI single, while Perez hit an RBI triple and then scored on a single by Rodriguez in the fifth.

Heras singled three times, scoring two runs for the Leones.
