The Grizzlies cut the Chihuahuas’ lead to one and loaded the bases with one out in the eighth but Bobby LaFromboise got Tyler Colvin to ground into a double play, ending the threat.

El Paso added three runs in the top of the ninth before Branch Kloess pitched a perfect bottom of the ninth to seal the win.

Jonathan Galvez went 2-for-2 with an RBI in his second game with El Paso. Rocky Gale went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in his first game back from the disabled list. San Diego outfielder Carlos Quentin went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in the first game of his Major League injury rehab assignment.
