Guasave split two games at Culiacan before the rubber match was washed out last Monday. The Algodoneros lost the October 16 opener, 6-5, despite homers from the Mario Brothers (Valenzuela and Valdez) before copping a 6-3 win over the Tomateros a day later as Chris Carter singled and homered twice to finish the game with three RBIs.
The Algodoneros came back to Guasave for a series with Mexicali, losing Game One, 6-4, on Tuesday despite Cristian Presichi’s three hits and two RBIs. Guasave fell Wendesday night as well, dropping a 5-2 decision to the Aguilas although Jose Rodriguez had two singles and a walk to score once for the Cottoneers. Guasave avoided a series sweep with an 11-3 win Thursday night as Valenzuela went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and RBI single.
