EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Dietrich Enns pitched six strong innings in the El Paso Chihuahuas’ 3-2 win over the San Antonio Missions Sunday night at Southwest University Park. It was Enns’ 11th win of the season, tying him with two others for the Pacific Coast League lead.
El Paso’s three runs came on two consecutive singles with two outs in the third, a two-run single by Aderlin Rodriguez and an RBI single by Esteban Quiroz. Former MLB All-Star Shelby Miller made his second Triple-A start of the year for San Antonio, allowing three runs in 4.1 innings.
El Paso manager Edwin Rodriguez was ejected in the fourth inning, his first ejection of the season. The Chihuahuas have won three consecutive games, including the last two by one run. El Paso’s win combined with the Las Vegas Aviators’ loss Sunday in Omaha put the two teams in a first place tie with 21 games remaining in the season.
