Chihuahuas walk off in extras on Father's Day
El Paso, TX — The El Paso Chihuahuas had their second walk-off win of the season Sunday, defeating the Round Rock Express 5-4 at Southwest University Park. After El Paso’s Jonathan Galvez tripled to begin the bottom of the 12th inning, Round Rock intentionally walked the bases loaded. Alex Castellanos then drove a single over the right fielder’s head to bring in Galvez with the game-winning run.
The Chihuahuas had a 4-1 lead entering the top of the ninth inning before Round Rock scored three runs on a two-run home run by Jared Hoying and an RBI double by Brett Nicholas. Neither team scored in the tenth or 11th innings. The victory was the Chihuahuas first extra-inning win of the season and their first run scored in ten extra innings this season.
