Villahermosa, Tabasco — Leo Heras scored on a forceout in the eighth inning, leading the Leones de Yucatan to a 3-2 win Wednesday over the Olmecas de Tabasco at Estadio Centenario.

Heras scored on the play after he led off the inning with a double and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt.

Yucatan went up 2-0 after Art Charles hit an RBI double in the first inning and Luis Juarez hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Tabasco answered in the bottom of the inning when Daniel Carbonell hit a two-run triple.

Starter Jose Samayoa (5-3), who took his fifth season win, had a great game after pitching seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out eight and allowing no walks. Tabasco’s Tomas Solis (2-5) took the loss in relief.

The Leones go for a sweep today (Thursday), with starting pitchers Jesse Estrada (6-1, 5.03 ERA) and Marcos Machado (1-2, 5.45 ERA). The 8 p.m. game can be viewed live on SIPSE TV and heard on La Comadre 98.5.
