Saltillo, Coahuila — The Leones’ hot streak was cooled down at the beginning of a three-day series against the Saraperos de Saltillo on Friday.

A three-run home run in the eighth inning by Josuan Hernandez led the Saraperos to a come-from-behind 8-6 win over Yucatan.

In the top of the ninth, Yucatan cut into the lead on a wild pitch that scored Walter Ibarra.
