Down 1-0, the Tigres took the lead for good when Yordanys Linares hit a two-run double and Reynaldo Rodriguez hit an RBI single en route to the two-run lead.

Quintana Roo later scored in three additional innings, including a four-run eighth, when Manuel Orduno hit a three-run home run to help put the game away to win the Clasico de Fieras series.
