Amarillo, TX — The Amarillo Sox scored four runs in the sixth inning and another four in the eighth to beat El Paso 10-4. Trailing 3-2 in the sixth the Sox loaded the bases and C Chris Grossman drew a walk to bring in the tying run. The very next batter, CF Cory Patton, doubled to center field, driving in the go-ahead run. Grossman would score on a wild pitch later in the inning to give the Sox a 6-4 lead.
