¡The Lion is the King!, the long-haired ones accomplished the feat and remain with the Zaachila cup after roaring in the last two games in Monterrey, defeating the sultans in the last of the series, which had gone uphill 3-2 and they ended up overcoming it with a great performance by Venezuelan José Martínez who produced five runs, giving them a coffee-flavored victory.
The Yucatan Lions were the worthy champions of the King’s Series, they came to it after going back to the Red Devils of Mexico at home in the final of the South Zone and when it seemed that the Sultans had everything to be crowned in their kingdom, the true king appeared to take his fifth crown.
The victory in the style of Venezuela ended up being sealed by Martínez, but the one who worked on it throughout the match was the Venezuelan pitcher Henderson Alvarezwho had an excellent start and pitched with an injured hand for eight full innings, posting eight rings and allowing one run into the ninth roll.
The Yucatan ninth managed to hit first thanks to the ‘Cafecito’ Martinezwhich powered Norberto Obeso to start the game, then the same Cafecito-Obeso combination reappeared in the top of the fifth roll for 2-0.
At the top of the seventh roll, a three-run homer by Martínez increased the lead to 5-0 and to seal the result, Walter Ibarra appeared in the ninth inning, hitting the second home run of the night.
On the part of the Sultans, he came out to show his face Zoilo Almontewho hit a board to left field that made the final 6-1.
