Roel Santos went yard for the first time on the year, a three-run shot in the fifth inning and knocked four runs to be the catalyst in Tabasco’s 16-8 thrashing of Quintana Roo. The leadoff hitter for the Olmecas now has 13 runs batted in on the season and sports a solid .407 slugging percentage.
Peter O’Brien continues to terrorize pitching in the Liga Mexicana de Béisbol, in yesterday’s action the Cuban-American slugger had a perfect day collecting four hits in as many trips to the plate. The outfielder slugged two doubles, drove in a run and scored three times to Puebla in their 7-0 blanking of Oaxaca. O’Brien leads the LMB with a 1.195 OPS.
Although Ariel Miranda did not factor in the decision he was once again dominant. The lefty from Mayabeque, Cuba tossed five innings where he struck out nine and only a allowed a run via three hits to watch his ERA to descend to 4.04 on the campaign. Saltillo on the other hand edged Campeche 4-3.
