For the baseball fans that love offense, they got to see a lot of it Sunday night at Southwest University Park as 29 runs were scored between the El Paso Chihuahuas and the Oklahoma City Dodgers.
The Dodgers hit seven home runs in their 20-9 win over the Chihuahuas. It was the first time since August 3, 2013 that Oklahoma City scored 20 or more runs in a game and the first time since August 7, 2019 that El Paso allowed 20 or more runs in a game.
Brian O’Grady went 3-for-5 with two RBIs, falling a double shy of a cycle, and moved his Triple-A hitting streak to eight games. Patrick Kivlehan went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, giving him homers in four consecutive games. Kivlehan is the first Chihuahuas player to hit home runs in four consecutive games since Ty France in June of 2019.
Steven Souza Jr. and Luke Raley both hit three home runs for Oklahoma City. El Paso infielder Matt Batten pitched the final three innings. It was his eighth professional pitching appearance.
The Chihuahuas will host the Dodgers again on Memorial Day at 6:35 p.m.
