[VIDEO PICK] Pachuca, the Mexican league team with three Americans in its ranks, earned a crucial point in a tight playoff race thanks to midfielder Juan Carlos Rojas' penalty kick save in the 87th minute of a 1-1 tie with Morelia last weekend.

Pachuca had already made its three substitutions when goalkeeper Miguel Calero was red-carded for a foul on Luis Rey that earned Morelia the late penalty kick with the score tied.

Rojas put on a goalkeeper's jersey and saved Miguel Sabah's effort from the spot.

Pachuca, for which Americans Marco Vidal, Jose Francisco Torres and Herculez Gomez were on the field, is fourth place in Group 2 but only three points behind leader San Luis with five games left in the Apertura 2010 regular season.
