Th El Paso Chihuahuas scored seven runs in the second inning and 10 runs through the first four to beat the San Antonio Missions 10-9. It was the first-ever meeting between the two teams.
With the recent woes of the pitching staff, the Chihuahuas have scored 10 or more runs in all four games of their current home-stand to stand even at 2-2. Ty France went 4-for-5 with a three-run home run and two doubles, the seventh time this season that France has collected four hits. His .406 batting average remains the best in professional baseball.
Seth Mejias-Brean had three hits, including his second triple in as many games, in the win.
Catcher David Freitas had four RBIs for the Missions, including a three-run homer. Third baseman Tyler Saladino made things interesting in the top of the ninth when he hit a three-run blast to pull san Antonio within one.
El Paso has bounced back from their five-game loosing streak with back-to-back wins. With the victory, the Chihuahuas now sit a game back of Las Vegas with 22 games to play.
