The Naranjeros traveled to Obregon, losing 2-1 on Tuesday to squander a six-inning, two-run start by Ty Taubenheim before coming back with a 5-3 win Wednesday as Jesus Castillo gave up no earned runs in five innings and Luis Alfonso Garcia hit a two-run homer. Hermosillo ended the set Thursday with a miraculous 5-4 win after trailing 4-0 in the ninth. A Carlos Gastelum bunt drew a throwing error by Obregon pitcher Sergio Lizarraga, resulting in the tying and winning runs scoring.

HERMOSILLO NARANJEROS (8-2-1)
Hermosillo opened a weekend series with Navojoa by clobbering the Mayos, 16-2, as Trent Oeltgen went 4-for-5 in the midst of a 21-hit, five-homer Orangemen attack. Hermosillo made it six out of the gate Saturday with a 7-6 squeaker as McDonald hit a grand slam before Sunday’s 8-3 loss to the Mayos, though McDonald did crack another homer.
