Charros make Pacific League final for third time

The Charros de Jalisco advanced to the final of the Mexican Pacific League (LMP), defeating the Monterrey Sultans in the seventh game of their semi-final series at their home stadium in Zapopan on Wednesday evening.

pg4aThe Charros face the Tomateros de Culiacan in the final series, the team they lost to in the 2014-15 season finale.

The Charros host the first two games of the final series on Friday, January 14, 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, January 15, 6 p.m.  If needed, the series will return to Guadalajara for ganes six and seven, on Friday, January 21 and Saturday, January 22.

The Charros downed Monterrey 3-0  in game seven of the semis, after the Sultans had leveled the series at 3-3 with a crushing 15-5 victory a day earlier.

Once again, Brennan Bernardino, a Mexican-American journeyman pitcher in the form of his life, was the Charros’ standout player, pitching 5 2/3 innings, giving up just two hits and striking out four to take the win. A two-run homer by Japhet Amador in the sixth inning put the Charros on the board, while reliever Roberto Osuna successfully closed out the game.
