Tucson Saguaros completed Friday’s postponed game on Saturday with a 12-10 win over the Roswell (N.M.) Invaders at Kino Memorial Stadium but the second game was rained out.

Tucson (32-13) snapped a four-game losing streak with the victory.

The Saguaros have a better winning percentage than Alpine (Texas) Cowboys but are now a half-game behind the Cowboys (36-16) in the Pecos League Mountain Division standings. Tucson’s winning percentage is .711 and Alpine’s is .692.

Sunday is the last day of the regular season. Tucson is scheduled to play Roswell at 7 p.m. at Kino Stadium.

The Saguaros are tentatively scheduled to begin a three-game playoff series with the Garden City (Kansas) Wind starting Tuesday at Kino Stadium.

That could change depending on Sunday’s outcomes.

Roswell (29-21) is only a half-game behind Garden City (29-20) for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Mountain Division. Garden City is hosting the Trinidad (Colo.) Triggers (30-18) on Sunday.
