The El Paso Chihuahuas scored six early runs on their way to an 8-5 victory over the Las Vegas 51s at Cashman Field Saturday night. After Rico Noel stole second base in the first inning, Reymond Fuentes drove him home for the first run of the game. Later in the inning, El Paso added two runs on an error by Las Vegas second baseman Daniel Muno and another when Cameron Maybin scored on a wild pitch.

 

Las Vegas got one run back in the bottom of the second, but Cody Decker gave El Paso its biggest lead of the night in the third inning when he hit a three-run home run over the left field wall to make the score 6-1. The 51s got close multiple times but never caught the Chihuahuas. Las Vegas loaded the bases in the eighth inning but El Paso closer Kevin Quackenbush got the final two outs of the eighth and pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save of the season.

 

Catcher Adam Moore went 3-for-3 with a walk in the win for El Paso. Blaine Boyer, Tony Sipp, Hector Ambriz and Quackenbush all had scoreless outings for the Chihuahuas.

 

Cameron Maybin doubles in the second run of the night.
