Mexico City — Alex Liddi and Luis Juarez connected on back-to-back homers in Sunday’s first inning to help lead the Leones de Yucatan to a 14-4 victory over the Diablos Rojos del Mexico.

The home runs were both solo shots and gave the Leones a 2-0 lead.

The win puts the Leones halfway toward a South Zone playoff victory. The rivalry continues Tuesday in Merida at Kukulcán Alamo Park. It’s also only the second time this season that the Diablos were defeated at home.

Yucatan later scored in four additional innings, including a nine-run third, when the team hit three home runs to help finish off the blowout.

Liddi was a triple short of the cycle, driving home two runs in the win. Art Charles doubled and singled, scoring two runs.

Yucatan starter Cesar Valdez (17-2) picked up the win despite allowing three runs and seven hits over five innings. Opposing starter David Reyes (6-9) took the loss after giving up six runs and six hits over two innings.

Emmanuel Avila doubled and singled twice, driving in a run and also scoring one for the Diablos Rojos. Ivan Terrazas reached base four times.
