Herculez Gomez breaks out of slump

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Herculez Gomez, who shared last spring's Mexican scoring title, broke out of a season-long slump with two goals in rapid flash -- the second on a spectacular free kick -- to give Pachuca a 3-0 win over Jaguares in Mexico's Torneo Clausura. For video of Gomez's goal and more on Americans abroad in action over the weekend ...

Gomez had scored only one goal in 24 games since joining Pachuca after scoring 10 goals in 15 games for Puebla.
