Lázaro Alonso aided his countrymen by swatting his second grand slam of the season in the first inning to get things started. Fellow Cuban Yadir Drake also jumped in on the action by collecting a hit and scoring twice. The two sluggers hit .206 and .352 respectively on the season.
Carlos Juan Viera won his fifth game of the season for Tabasco after hurling five impeccable innings where he gave up only one earned run via five hits.
