Redbirds' Five Homers Too Much For El Paso

The Memphis Redbirds hit five home runs in their 10-4 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Monday night.

Two of the homers came off the wood of Ramon Urias, the older brother of former Chihuahuas infielder Luis Urias. Another was hit by rehabbing St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.

The Chihuahuas walked a season-high 11 times in the loss, while El Paso’s pitching staff tied a team-record without walking a single Redbird.

Carl Edwards Jr., Tyler Higgins and Travis Radke all posted blank frames in relief outings for El Paso.

The Chihuahuas lost 3 of 4 in Memphis and dropped four of seven on their road trip. Tuesday, the Pacific Coast League enjoyed a day of rest.
