In the fifth inning, Aguascalientes cut Yucatan’s lead in half with four runs of their own. The following inning, the Rieleros’ Michael Wing hit a three-run double, cutting the Leones’ lead to 1.

The Leones later added two runs in both the eighth and ninth innings. In the eighth, Jorge Flores hit an RBI single, while Xavier Scruggs hit an RBI double and then scored on a single by Leo Heras in the ninth.
