Agustin Murillo's two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning all but put the finishing touches on the Sultanes' 3-0 whitewash of Tijuana in their rain-delayed Game Two of the LMB North championship series in front of nearly 26,000 fans at Estadio Monterrey Monday.  The Sultanes had taken a 1-0 lead over the Toros at the bottom of the second frame Sunday afternoon when a cloudburst caused the umpires to suspend the contest for a day.  Five Monterrey pitchers combined on the three-hitter. with Mario Gonzalez credited with the win and Wirfin Obispo collecting the save.
