José Urquidy enlarges his legend and takes the victory in Game 5 of the World Series

Lyou Astros had to come from behind to stay alive in the World Series. A good job from his sluggers that made the Braves pitchers succumb to take Game 5, but the feat was left in the hands of the Mexican José Urquidy.

Dusty Baker decided to send Urquidy to the mound in the fourth inning, where he only allowed one hit and got all three outs so that later in the fifth his team would turn the game around and take the victory. The Mazatlan only had three days off since he opened game 2.

With this, Urquidy reaches three World Series victories increasing his record as the Mexican with the most victories in the title fight, leaving behind men like Fernando Valenzuela, Aurelio López and Víctor González, that they only achieved one.

Now, the work does not end there for Urquidy and he is considered to open Game 6 in Houston to seek to force a seventh and final duel.
