Chihuahuas Hang on for Second Consecutive Win

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.
