Texas-born teen Jose Francisco Torres
became one of the youngest Americans ever to start for a
Mexican club when he started for 2007 Torneo Clausura champion Pachuca in a 3-1 win over Morelia.
Pachuca, which meets the Houston Dynamo Tuesday in the semifinals of the SuperLiga, used
the 5-foot-5 Torres in midfield.
Torres, 19, was born in Longview, Texas, Edgar Castillo
was again in the starting lineup for Santos,
which improved to 2-0-0 in Mexico's Torneo Apertura with a 3-2 win at Toluca. Michael Orozco
, another young defender, started for San Luis in a 3-1 victory over Necaxa.
