The Los Tuxtlas Brujos turned in the best regular season record in the Veracruz Winter League, going 32-6 to finish nine games ahead of the 24-16 Xalapa Chileros in the eight-team overall standings. The Brujos then won their first round playoff series over the Minatitlan Gavilanes, 3 games to 1, to advance to the semifinals. Xalapa outlasted the Soledad Toros, 3-2, in their series to advance to the LIV final four, and the Cordoba Cafeteros slipped by the Santa Rosa Gallos, 3 games to 2. The three first round winners will advance in the postseason, as will the “lucky loser” team who showed best in their first round defeat.

Jorge Luis Delgado of Cosamaloapan won the Veracruzana batting title with a .368 average. Santa Rosa import Jayson Bass led the circuit with seven homers, while teammate Ricardo Vasquez and Tuxtlas’ Omar Bramasco tied for the RBI title with 31 ribbies apiece.

The Brujos’ Guadalupe Perez turned in a 7-0 record to lead all pitchers in wins. Perez’ Tuxtlas mound mate, Daniel Perez, took the ERA title with a 1.51 mark over 41 innings, while Soledad’s Aaron Acosta won the strikeout crown with 38 in 53 frames.
