Navojoa Mayos, had to come from behind to beat Hermosillo 4.3, ending a 5 losing streak, as winner ISAURO PINEDA went 5.1 innings allowing only one run, but leaving the game in the 6th to MAURY LARA ,with bases loaded and Lara forced ANDY ABAD hit into a double play to end that threat, then Hansel Izquierdo and closer SCOTT CHIASSON, who picked his 5th of the year, completed the work.
For Navojoa, Obregonian SERGIO CONTRERAS drove all 4 runs in with a pair of doubles, included one in the 8 th inning, driving the 2 winning runs in the spikes of Kenny Kelly and Chris Walter. For Hermsillo, losing pitcher was JONATHAN CASTELLANOS who is not showing his good performance he delivered with Tijuana, or is it that this league is little too much harder?
