The El Paso Chihuahuas put on an offensive show by tallying 18 hits in their home opener defeating Tacoma 11-4.  A capacity crowd of 10,047 watched the Chihuahuas dismantle the Rainiers with timely hitting and a loaded offense that play-by-play announcer Tim Hagerty described as potentially the best he's seen since calling their games in 2008.

Brett Wallace went 3-for-5 with a home run and had four RBIs in his Padres organizational debut.  Fan favorite Cody Decker hit a home run and Abraham Almonte went 5-for-5.  Almonte became just the second player in Chihuahuas history to have five hits in a game.  El Paso continues their series with Tacoma on Friday at 7:05.  Don't forget to listen to all the action on 600 ESPN El Paso.
