It was the second homer of the night for Ojeda (pictured) while fellow ex-MLBer Ruben Rivera knocked out a solo blast for the home team. Victor Diaz was the main man for Obregon, crunching a three-run homer of his own for the Yaquis.
Obregon had defeated Mazatlan, 4-3, on January 15 to stay alive in the series after the Venados won the first two games. Michael Martinez socked a two-run homer and added a double for the Yaquis to counter Edgar Gonzalez’ solo home for the Deer.
One night later, Walter Silva held Obregon to one run in seven innings while Rivera jacked a two-run longball as Mazatlan’s 5-2 win gave the Venados a 3-1 series lead heading into Game 5.
