‘915’ Home Run Tracker: 886
On Saturday, June 15th, the Chihuahuas hosted the Oklahoma City Dodgers in the first of a four game series.
El Paso started out by allowing six runs in the first inning but the big score was the attendance. Selena Night brought in an abundance of fans with many wearing their Chihuahuas and Dodgers jerseys. Despite losing the series opener 11-3 to the Dodgers, El Paso had another multi-homer game from the bats of Jason Vosler and Ty France. Former Chihuahua Shane Peterson went yard as well along with Zach Reks.
The biggest score of all is the astounding number of home runs El Paso has hit since its inaugural season in 2014. This season seems to be the most impressive with the Chihuahuas currently at 886 overall after game one against Oklahoma City and 150 on the season. To put it into perspective, they have hit five more home run than they did in their first season and the All Star Break (El Paso 2019) is still just under a month away.
The bats keep swinging and the team keeps scoring. Will we see El Paso get to 887 and beyond in game two on Father's Day?
