EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The El Paso Chihuahuas compiled 20 hits in their 12-11 win over the Sacramento River Cats Tuesday night at Southwest University Park. El Paso has won four of its five games against Sacramento this season.

Esteban Quiroz went 5-for-5 for El Paso, becoming the first Chihuahuas player to collect five hits in a game since Allen Craig on July 25, 2018 at Colorado Springs.
