Texan starts for Pachuca in playoff loss

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Texan Juan Francisco Torres started and played the first half for Pachuca as it fell at home, 1-0, to San Luis in the first leg of their wild-card playoff game. San Luis' U.S. U-23 defender Michael Orozco missed the game with a muscle injury.

Argentine Eduardo German Coudet provided the goal with a stoppage-time penalty kick.
