The El Paso Chihuahuas scored five runs in the seventh inning, including three with two outs, in their 7-3 come-from-behind win against the Nashville Sounds Friday night at Southwest University Park. The Chihuahuas and Sounds split the four game series. It was the only series meeting between the two teams this season.

 

The Chihuahuas trailed 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth when Cody Decker hit a solo home run off the side of right field’s Santa Fe Pavilion to tie the game. Trailing 3-2 in the seventh, El Paso sent nine batters to the plate, collecting five runs on six hits to go ahead. The rally included a two-run double by Jonathan Galvez, RBI hits from Adam Moore and Decker, and a sacrifice fly by Jeff Francoeur.

 

Joe Wieland pitched well in his Chihuahuas debut, allowing two runs in six innings of work. Stephen Kohlscheen collected his first win in the Padres organization. Hector Ambriz and Bobby LaFromboise both had scoreless outings out of the El Paso bullpen. Friday’s sellout was the 40th in 58 home openings at Southwest University Park.

 

Cody Decker tied the game at 2-2 with this solo home run in the sixth inning.
