Escogido's Julio Borbon went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles––one infield and one to left field––in his club's come-from-behind 3-2 victory. The Leones scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth for the walkoff win, pushing them to 6-1 in the Dominican Winter League's round robin postseason.

Jose Felix got the start for the Algodoneros de Guasave, batting ninth, and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk. He also gunned down Obregon's only attempted base stealer.

Guasave, which won the game 5-4 in 10 innings, avoided being swept in the best of seven series. They now trail three games to one.
