Torreon, Coahuila — Walter Ibarra and Humberto Sosa produced nine runs, and the Leones de Yucatan hit four homers in one inning, to win with authority 14-3 Thursday against the Algodoneros de Union Laguna. Yucatan swept the three-game series with the win.

Ibarra showed his power with the wood by going 3-4 with five RBIs, short of a double to complete “the cycle.”

Starting pitcher Jose Samayoa earned his fourth win of the year by going six innings allowing two runs, striking out four. He was impeccably relieved by Yucatan native Carlos Pech in his first appearance of the season, and Tony Amezcua, who got the last three outs.

Yucatan overtook the Laguneros with two fierce attacks of five and eight runs to take solitary possession at the top South Conference.

The Leones rallied beginning in the third inning with five runs led by the red-hot Walter Ibarra, Jose Juan Aguilar’s sacrifice fly, and Alex Liddi’s extra-base hit that scored two runs and who later scored.

A triple by Ibarra produced the fourth inning’s sixth run. Two innings later, the Spaniard sentenced the game with a powerful eight-claw rally.

In that decisive rally, Humberto Sosa hit two home runs, and Walter Ibarra and Art Charles joined him with panoramic shots out of the park to add four in the same inning.

Union Laguna’s Niuman Romero, with a double at the bottom of the sixth, brought home a run. The loss went to Cuban pitcher Reinier Roibal, who in 2.1 innings was responsible for five runs.

The Leones today (Friday) head to Saltillo for a new three-game series against the Saraperos at 7:30 p.m. Scheduled to start for Yucatan is Jesse Estrada, facing Sergio Miter. The game will be broadcast live by and internetv.
