Cowboys and Saguaros divide series

The Cowboys almost met their match this week as they faced off with Tucson for seven games over six days in two cities. After Sunday, the smallest town in America with a professional baseball team won four games, while one of the biggest cities in North America with an independent minor league team took three.

Tucson had a Triple A minor league team until 2014, and the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, and Colorado Rockies once held spring training there. Now the only professional team left in a metro area of over 800,000 people is the Saguaros of the Pecos League.
