Seth Beer’s bases loaded walk in the bottom of the 10th inning gave the Reno Aces an 11-10 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Sunday. Reno won all three games of the series, marking the first time the Chihuahuas were swept in a series this season.
Chihuahuas leadoff hitter Jose Azocar had two singles and two walks, reaching base four times for the second consecutive game. San Diego Padre Wil Myers went 2-for-5 with a double on MLB injury rehab Sunday, collecting the first extra-base hit of his El Paso rehab stint. The Chihuahuas used 10 pitchers in the game to set a team record.
