LOS MOCHIS – An eight-run attack in the first third of the game, in which they scored in the second and third innings, backed a good pitching by Luis Fernando Miranda, and with it Algodoneros de Guasave beat Cañeros de Los Mochis 8-2 , to apply the sweep on Monday in a delayed way.
The result corresponds to the pending game on Tuesday, October 12, which could not be held due to the rain, in what was only the second series of the Mexican Pacific League.
Algodoneros remains with a 17-12 mark –only in second place two games behind Mayos de Navojoa– and takes a game ahead of Tomateros de Culiacán, Charros de Jalisco and Yaquis de Ciudad Obregón, who have figures of 16 -13. Cañeros remains at the bottom of the table at 8-21 with three games to go to finish the First Round.
Miranda (3-2) came out with his arms raised, throwing five innings for five hits, a pair of bases, five strikeouts and a run. The defeated Manuel Urías (0-1) only held one and a third innings with five hits, two bases, a pair of strikeouts and five runs.
Algodoneros headed for victory in the second inning, thanks to a five-race rally.
Ángel Erro put a number on the board by driving two with a double to the right; later, he scored with a hit in the middle of José Félix. The cherry on the cake was put by Marco Jaime with a double to left, a producer of two runs.
Algodoneros continued their offense in the third with a three-line attack. Felix reported the first with a double, while the other pair entered with singles by Miguel Guzmán and Jaime.
Cañeros removed the shutout in the third, thanks to a single by Edgar Robles, who sent rookie Jorge Rivera to the plate. José Zepeda drove in the second hairline in the eighth inning, thanks to a solo homer.
