The Piratas de Campeche rallied in the fourth inning Sunday to come from behind and beat the Leones de Yucatan 6-4, concluding the Peninsular Classic at Nelson Barrera Stadium.

A two-run homer in the fourth inning by Paul Leon came in the midst of a four-run inning and gave the Piratas a 5-4 lead. Later in the inning, Olmo Rosario hit an RBI single, bringing home Jay Austin.

Campeche starter Hector Galvan (2-3) picked up the win despite allowing four runs and eight hits over five innings. Opposing starter Jose Samayoa (7-4) took the loss when he allowed six runs and eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.
