With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth, Brayan Quintero stepped to the plate with — two outs on the board — before hitting a drive to right field in a game-winning run by Norberto Obeso.

The first inning saw a costly error when an infield popup resulted in the ball bouncing out of first basemen Art Charles’ mitt, but his homer in the fourth inning more than made up for the earlier error. Another homerun made earlier by power hitter Luis “Pepón” Juárez left the Leones with a two-run lead going into the fourth inning.

Last night saw the Leones announcing their starting lineup for the 2021 season. The most anticipated position announcement was the pitching rotation which included LMB rookie and former Cincinnati Reds pitcher Logan Ondrusek taking the mound in the first inning throwing at speeds upwards of 95 mph.

The 2021 season starts May 25 when the Leones take on the Olmecas De Tobasco in a Maya Cup rematch that resulted in an the Leones losing the Cup earlier in the preseason.

With two Olympic hopefuls, dominant pitching, and a commanding infield this is shaping up to be a repeat of the Leones’ 2018 dominating league championship season.
