Merida, Yucatan — The Peninsular Classic series got off on a false note Friday when the Piratas de Campeche defeated the Leones de Yucatan 5-3.

Campeche started the scoring in the first inning, but the Leones cut into a growing deficit in the sixth inning when Alex Liddi and Xavier Scruggs scored on a home run, and Walter Ibarra scored on a wild pitch.

Campeche right-hander Carlos De Leon (1-2) picked up the win after allowing two runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. Opposing starter Miguel Pena (1-7) took the loss after giving up three runs and six hits over 3 1/3 innings.

They meet again today (Saturday) at 5:45 p.m., with starting pitchers Luis Pino (0-3, 8.23 ​​ERA) facing the Leones’ Yoanner Negrín (9-3, 2.96 ERA).
