Merida, Yucatan — After bringing the Serie del Rey, the national baseball finals, home to Parque Kukulcán Alamo, the Leones have lost some ground.

Noah Perio hit a two-run single in the fourth inning, leading the Acereros del Norte to a 6-3 win over the Leones de Yucatan, and a 2-1 series lead, on Friday.

Yucatan answered in the bottom of the inning when Luis Juarez scored on a wild pitch to cut the deficit to two.

The Acereros later added two runs in the fifth and one in the eighth. In the fifth, Mejia hit a two-run single, while Eric Young Jr. scored on a double play in the eighth.

Francisco Peguero doubled and singled twice, driving in a run and also scoring one for Monclova.

Monclova right-hander Conor Harber (5-2) picked up the win after allowing two runs on four hits over five innings. Jose Samayoa (10-6) took the loss after allowing three runs and six hits over 3 2/3 innings.

“We are calm, tomorrow we will go out with the same objective and I trust Crenshaw (today’s starting pitcher) fully,” said Leones Manager Gerónimo Gil. “It is very motivating to see the stadium full and feel that support from our fans.”

Crenshaw (1-1) faces Geno Encina (0-2) on the mound.

Fans can watch the crucial game on Multimedios, SKY Sports, TUDN, SIPSE TV, Tele Yucatán and Telesur, or listen in on RASA, Grupo Radio Centro, La Comadre 98.5 and KISS 97.7. Online, it will stream on Facebook Live and the Internetv and Cinépolis KLIC platforms.
