Chihuahuas Drop Third Game in a Row

After winning the first game in the series with the Round Rock Express, The El Paso Chihuahuas have lost the last three games in a row.

On Sunday night, Round Rock beat the Chihuahuas 5-2 at Dell Diamond.

El Paso’s two runs came on a two-run homer by catcher Michael Cantu in the top of the fifth inning, his first longball of the season and his fourth home run in 15 career Triple-A games. Brian O’Grady and Gosuke Katoh had two hits each for the Chihuahuas.

Former San Diego Padre Wade LeBlanc pitched six innings in his second start with Round Rock. Chihuahuas relievers Parker Markel, Nick Ramirez and Mason Thompson all pitched scoreless outings in the loss.

Round Rock catcher Yohel Pozo hit two home runs in the win for the Express.

The Chihuahuas will play Round Rock again on Monday night at 6:05 p.m.
