Hopes were high in Culiacan going into this season after a last-place finish last winter, but the Tomateros lost four of five games to start the season to go into the weekend tied for last place. Jesus Cota has been a home run machine since August, and he whacked a two-run bomb in the season opener at Mazatlan, but Culiacan still lost, 4-3. The Tomateros fell to the Venados, 5-4, in Culiacan last Sunday, thwarting a six-inning, one-run start for Travis Minix and a three-hit day for Victor Bojorquez.
Culiacan then lost two more in Navojoa before getting their first win. Wednesday’s 2-0 loss spoiled a good six-inning, three hit outing by starter Arturo Barradas. The Tomateros absorbed a 5-2 loss to the Mayos Thursday despite a Dee Brown homer before winning the nightcap, 4-3, as Mike Cervenak went 2-for-3 with a homer and Brown added two RBIs.
