The El Paso Chihuahuas scored two first inning runs against Las Vegas Thursday and never looked back in their 7-4 win over the 51s.

Blaine Boyer pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his fourth El Paso save.

 

Andrew Brown hit a first-inning home run for Las Vegas, plating a 51s first-inning run for the fifth time in six games in El Paso. The Chihuahuas scored twice in the first on Travis Buck’s sacrifice fly and Jake Goebbert’s RBI triple. El Paso struck three straight hits to begin the bottom of the sixth, including an RBI double by pinch-hitter Jonathan Galvez, who later scored on Jeff Francoeur’s sacrifice fly to first baseman Allan Dykstra. It was the second time in a week a Chihuahuas’ runner scored on a sacrifice fly to an infielder.

 

Cody Decker went 3-for-4 with a walk in the win, while Goebbert and Alex Castellanos had two hits each. Thursday was the 16th sellout at Southwest University Park in 19 games.
