Culiacan fired manager Nick Leyva, but returning skipper Paquin Estrada couldn’t halt a 1-5 week. In fact, the Tomateros’ only win came Wednesday, without either Leyva or Estrada in the dugout.
Mike McCoy and Mike Cervenak are both hitting .344. Cervenak has five homers, just behind Refugio Cervantes seven, and 20 RBIs. Among pitchers, Chris Waters is 2-0 with a 3.42 ERA and Travis Minix’ 3.41 ERA looks better than his 1-2 record, though Minix got shelled by Hermosillo in his last start.
