Merida, Yucatan — Herlis Rodriguez homered and had two hits, driving in two as the Pericos de Puebla beat the Leones de Yucatan 10-3 Saturday at the Parque Kukulcán Alamo.

Puebla scored in six different innings in the victory, including the third, when it crossed the plate for three runs, including an out and an RBI single by Alan Garcia.

Rain prolonged the game, which lasted more than six hours.
