Merida, Yucatan — The Leones are kings of the south!

Yucatan swept the Mexico City Diablos Rojos Wednesday to advance to the Serie del Rey for the second consecutive year.

Alex Liddi hit a two-run home run and had three hits, driving in four, and Jose Samayoa allowed just four hits over 6 1/3 innings.

“I feel very happy for all my teammates. This is a win for everyone because it was a tremendous job in the whole series, this goes through Yucatan,” said Liddi.

“I thank the fans for their unconditional support throughout the season. It was nice to see the stadium full and we hope it will be so in the King’s Series,” said José Samayoa (10-5), who allowed one run while striking out eight and walking two to pick up the win.

Yucatan started the scoring in the first inning when Liddi hit a two-run home run.

Mexico answered in the next half-inning when David Vidal hit an RBI single, driving in Japhet Amador to get within one.

The Leones added to their lead in the second when Liddi hit a two-run double.

Patrick Johnson (10-7) went 1 2/3 innings, allowing four runs and five hits. He also struck out three and walked one.
