League Changes July 9th Chihuahuas Loss to a Win — See Why

Jorge Salgado

Great news EL Paso! Because of this ruling, the Chihuahuas have gained a game on Las Vegas!

The Pacific Coast League has announced an official change to the result of the July 9 game between the El Paso Chihuahuas and Albuquerque Isotopes.  The final score was Albuquerque 6, El Paso 5, but now it’s an El Paso victory by way of forfeit.

After the game was over, the  Pacific Coast League determined that a 26th player was improperly added to the Albuquerque roster. Rules say the active roster limit for Triple-A teams is 25 players.  The 26th player was added when the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Isotopes major league affiliate, activated an Albuquerque player from the Disabled List without removing a player from the Triple-A club’s Active List, which was already at the 25-player limit.

Per the Official Baseball Rules, even though the final score will now be listed as a 9-0 El Paso win, individual and team statistics from the game, including runs scored, will count in the official records.  However, the pitching records – win, loss, and other – will be erased.
