Miguel Ojeda’s two-run walkoff homer in the bottom of the 12th inning handed Mazatlan a 6-4 win over Obregon on January 17, capping a five-game semifinal series victory for the Venados over the Yaquis.

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.
