Osorio’s double leads Puebla to 8-1 win over Campeche

CAMPECHE, Mexico (AP) -- Enrique Osorio hit a two-run double in the fifth inning, leading the Pericos de Puebla to an 8-1 win over the Piratas de Campeche on Sunday. The Pericos swept the three-game series with the win.

The double by Osorio started the scoring in a seven-run inning and broke a scoreless tie. Later in the inning, Puebla scored on four more plays, including a two-run single by Antonio Lamas and an RBI single by Noah Perio.

Edwin Salas (1-0) got the win with 2 1/3 innings of scoreless, one-hit relief while Campeche starter Luis Pino (0-1) took the loss in the Mexican League game.

Puebla took advantage of some erratic Campeche pitching, drawing a season-high seven walks in its victory.

With the win, Puebla improved to 4-2 against Campeche this season.
