Monterrey Sultanes

Playoff update and an announcement from the Q. Roo Tigres under the cut.

Monterrey Sultanes

With Jose Lima on the mound in game 5 of the North division final, the Saltillo Saraperos were hoping to inch closer, however it was not to be. Lima gave up a 2 run bomb to former Yankee Karim Garcia and Monterrey continued to chip away at Lima, winning the game 6-2. Monterrey is now the North division champs, winning the series 4 games to 1 and will go on to the LMB series final to face the south division winner, either Yucatan or Mexico City. It should be a good one and we’ll keep you posted.

In other Mexican League news, the Quintana Roo Tigres addressed the media concerning the team was on the move yet again. The Tigres brass reaffirmed their commitment to Cancun and the state of Quintana Roo with the government supporting the team’s stay in the city. Although the team sustained a loss this year, they made some headway and made it to the playoffs in their first year of existence, bowing out to Yucatan in the first round. Furthermore, for the first time the Tigres will employ the LMB maximum of 4 foreign born players in 2008 after not having any this past season. They feel this will be the key to attain the league title in ’08.
