Guadalajara / 07.07.2021 00:33:17
The comebacks are given to Guadalajara. In a duel that went 0-5 against, a Jesse Castillo home run in the fourth inning that rekindled hope and a five-run rally in the eighth inning gave Mariachis a 10-6 win over Pericos de Puebla with a somersault that consolidates them one more day in the leadership of the Mexican Baseball League with their 27 victories and only nine defeats.
José Valdez, the green starter, handcuffed the locals who were behind by five runs in the fourth round for three innings, however, Mariachis woke up with runs from Beau Amaral and a home run of two more by Castillo to get closer to 5-3.
The relief did not work for the ninth from Puebla who saw his advantage diminish as the innings progressed.
Alejandro Chávez went without a decision after pitching four five-run innings; the victory was scored by reliever Jonathan Aro (3-1, 5.27) and the loss went to Ulises Joaquin (3-4, 3.26).
In the sixth, both teams would score one more to put things 6-4. Guadalajara approached one with a single by Amaral that boosted Mendivil and the draw and comeback came in the eighth roll that was a party for the local public.
First it was Carlos Mendivil who drove Garcia to 6-6 and Leo Heras would make the comeback on a wheelie. Later, a fly by Adrián González was not cut by the left fielder and third baseman, adding more to the scoreboard and closing the fateful relief of the visitors.
Benjamin Gil will not be present in this series because he received special permission from the board to attend to personal matters and will return on Friday for the series against Toros in Tijuana. Heriberto Garcia will be the one in charge.
For the second in the series, Marco Carrillo is announced as starter by Mariachis.
