Diablos fall late Monday in Amarillo, 14-3
Amarillo, TX — A five-RBI game from LF David Peralta powered the Amarillo Sox past the El Paso Diablos 14-3. Peralta was 3-for-5 in the game and scored twice on his own to go with the five runs he knocked in. Three of those RBI came on a triple in the bottom of the sixth inning. He singled in a run an inning earlier as a part of the Sox’ seven-run rally. Amarillo DH Cory Patton also had a nice night as he was 4-for-4 with a run and an RBI. 2B/3B Trey Ford also added three hits and two RBI for the Sox. El Paso was held to just four hits in the game and 2B Jose Garcia had half of them as well as scoring two of the teams three runs. Starter Ryan Mitchell got the win but reliever Matt Larkins had the more impressive line as he worked the last four innings without giving up a hit or a walk. Larkins picked up the save.
