First run of June 9th, 1885:

Actually, first two runs both belong to the :brujos:, but the first was leadoff hitter and LF Javier Tomé scoring on a passed ball against the :capitanes:.

First home run of June 9th, 1885:

Rookie José Rodríguez (SS, :fundadores:), after swinging and missing on a 2-0 pitch from :polluelos: veteran Álvaro Manchacha, blasts the next one 408 feet away between left and center.

Solo, #3 on the season.

Currently:

:tiburones: are down 5-3 against the :lobos:, putting their 10-game winning streak in danger.

:reyes: are up 2-1 against the :criollos: with one out left.

Héctor García (LHP, :pescadores:) just lost his no-hitter seven innings in, giving up a double to Jesús Ramírez (2B, :citricos:)

His team is still up, 2-1.

Fresh off hitting a home run in yesterday's 22-2 absolute ruination of the :patriotas:, Mario Méndez (LF, :maceteros:) hits another one against the :caciques: to give his team a 2-1 lead.

That home run has now been rendered completely useless by the Cacis, who have just put up an 8-spot in the 6th, capped off by a 372-foot 3-run dinger to left field by catcher Juan López.

:caciques: 9 - 4 :maceteros:, as we write.

The :ingenieros:, faced with Miguel González of the :toritos:, tricked him into loading the bases and allowing an error to score.

It's unlikely to hold for long, but for the moment, La Máquina is up 1-0.

Israel Reyes (LHP, :ingenieros:) is currently pitching the game of his life against the :toritos:—La Máquina is down 3-2 in the bottom of the 7th.

Top of the 9th and Reyes is unraveling—a balk just scored a :toritos: run, and he hit the next batter with a pitch, putting men on first and second, before allowing a single.

Bases loaded with . . . and he gets José Flores out. :ingenieros: down 5-2 with three outs left.

Unbelievable.

Two errors by the :toritos: allowed Oscar Valdez and Ramon Pallares onto base.

Francisco Valle reached on an error to load the bases, and Víctor "The Snowman" Nieves just hit a single—his first hit in all five ABs—to score two.

:ingenieros: tied, 5-5, with two outs left.

While we've been watching this, two guys named César García—one on the :cuervos:, one on the :vejigantes:—have both pitched shutouts, the latter against the normally quite fearsome :grises:.
