GUAYMAS WINS 1-0 THRILLER TO CLINCH NORTE PENNANT

Although Guaymas team officials were able to hold off fans outside the ballpark who wanted to watch the sold-out game going on inside, there was nothing that could hold off Rafael “El Toro” Flores and his Ostioneros from defeating Agua Prieta, 1-0, last Sunday to close out their Mexican Northern League championship series in five games.
Flores drove in Julian Laurean with the game’s only run by drilling a pitch off the wall in the bottom of the first, and then went on to toss a shutout in his fifth complete game of the postseason to cinch the pennant for Guaymas, who ended the Vaqueros’ three-year run for the Norte championship.
Over 5,000 fans jammed Guaymas’ Estadio Abelardo L. Rodriguez for the game.
