Mazatlan is right behind Hermosillo after winning four of their first five contests. John Lindsey was 4-for-5 and Pablo Ortega pitched five shutout innings in the Venados’ 4-3 season opener win over Culiacan October 10, followed by a 5-4 win in Culiacan one day later behind Ruben Rivera’s solo homer and Brian Bixler’s two hits (including an RBI single).
The Deer stayed home for a three-game midweek set with Obregon. Rivera whacked a two-run homer to pace Tuesday’s 5-3 victory over the Yaquis, but Mazatlan tasted defeat on Wednesday as Obregon prevailed, 6-4 despite two singles and a triple from Freddy Sandoval and two more singles from Bixler. The Venados copped the rubber match Thursday night, 4-1, as Sandoval homered and tripled to back another strong outing from Ortega, who allowed no earned runs in six innings.
