Chihuahuas Start Road Trip With a Win

The El Paso Chihuahuas scored five late unanswered runs to come back and beat the Round Rock Express 6-3 Thursday in the first game of a 12-game road trip.

The Chihuahuas trailed 3-1 in the seventh inning before scoring once in the seventh and twice each in the eighth and ninth. Luis Campusano went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a game-tying RBI for El Paso. John Andreoli ended a 13-pitch at-bat with a two-run triple in the top of the ninth inning. It was his third triple of the season, which is tied for the most in Triple-A West.

Round Rock native Mason Thompson closed the game for El Paso, earning his fourth save of the year. Former Express player Nick Tanielu went 3-for-4 with two RBIs for the Chihuahuas.

El Paso’s win snapped Round Rock’s six-game winning streak and it was El Paso’s first game in Round Rock since 2017.

The Chihuahuas will face off against the Express again on Friday night at 6:05 p.m.
