The Leones’ Hector Hernandez is the third-best batter in the LMB.

Merida, Yucatan — Tight pitching from Jose Samayoa led to the Leones’ 4-2 victory, and a series win, over the Toros de Tijuana.

Sunday was also a historic night at Kukulcán Alamo stadium. Hector Hernandez ended a 23-game hitting streak, a new record for the club.

“This is the reflection of the work of the whole team,” said the skillful infielder, who is also the third-best batter in the Mexican Baseball League. “I want to dedicate this moment to my family and our fans.”

Yeison Asencio hit a run-scoring single in the eighth inning, part of a two-run inning that gave the Leones a 3-2 lead before Leo Heras hit an RBI single later in the inning.

Humberto Sosa hit an RBI single, bringing home Asencio in the second inning to give the Leones a 1-0 lead. The Toros came back to take the lead in the third inning when Junior Lake hit a two-run home run.

Yucatan tied the game 2-2 in the third when Luis Juarez hit an RBI double, scoring Jonathan Jones.

Andres Avila (2-1) got the win with 1 2/3 innings of scoreless, two-hit relief while Jumbo Diaz (2-3) took the loss in the Mexican League game.

Lake homered and singled twice, driving in two runs for the Toros.
