Ollie pitches in playoffs

With Culiacan looking to sweep its best-of-seven first-round playoff series against Mazatlan, Oliver Perez took the mound Wednesday and fell an out shy of qualifying for the decision.

In 4 2/3 innings, Perez was charged with one earned run on four hits, six walks and five strikeouts.

Overall in Mexico this winter, Perez has walked 29 in 37 2/3 innings.
