Charros sneak into baseball playoffs

The Charros de Jalisco finished the year with a 30-38 record, managing to take the sixth and last playoff slot ahead of the Naranjeros de Hermosillo and last year’s Mexican Pacific League (LMP) champions, Tomateros de Culiacan.

Jalisco garnered eight points in the two halves of the LMP season to earn the right to face the top-seeded Aguilas de Mexicali in the first round of the playoffs.
