Obregon stumbled into the week on the heels of a three-game sweep at the hands of Mexicali by an aggregate score of 30-11. Michael Taylor hit a two-run single in the opener, Albino Contreras scored once and drove in a run in an October 17 defeat and Neil Sellers collected three hits and two RBIs in last Sunday’s 14-7 rout, but it was essentially a lost weekend as the Yaquis pitching collectively collapsed.

Obregon then hosted Hermosillo in a series, opening with a 2-1 win over the Naranjeros on Tuesday behind starter Andrew Kown’s six shutout innings and Daniel Fornes’ 3-for-4 night at the plate. Carlos Valencia homered one night later, but Obregon fell to Hermosillo, 5-3, Wednesday night. The Yaquis had a 4-0 lead going into the ninth inning Thursday, but coughed up five runs to lose, 5-4, despite a 3-for-4 night for Valencia, who drove in three runs.
