Leones de Yucatan were proclaimed champions of the Mexican Baseball League (LMB) this Thursday June 28, after winning 4-3 against the Sultans of Monterrey, in the seventh and final game of the series. The match was played at the Kukulcán Stadium, in Mérida, Yucatan, where the party lasted all night.

The winner was the Cuban pitcher Yoanner Negrin, who worked for five innings and one third, allowing six hits and two runs. The rescue was carried out by Chad Gaudin. While the defeat corresponded to Marco Tovar, after a work of four innings, in which he accepted six hits and four runs.

After 12 years of raising the pennant for the last time, the Yucatan Lions reached their longed fourth title of the Mexican Baseball League MLB.

Leones have celebrated four League titles. The first was in the year 1957 when they fought against the Eagles of Veracruz in their home. More recently, the Kukulcán stadium has witnessed the next three titles, in August 20, 1984 when the felines won the championship at home, defeating the Indians of Ciudad Juarez. In the year 2006, on August 27 in a series against the Sultans of Monterrey, they won their third LMB star; and finally the victory of June 28, 2018 against the “regios” again.

In the city of Merida the fans have gone out to the streets to celebrate the pennant, marching by the caravan on which their baseball idols toured the state capital, waving flags, saying cheers and waiting for the longed photograph next to the trophy.

Congratulations LEONES!
