The El Paso Chihuahuas beat the Round Rock Express 2-1 in 10 innings Sunday to finish the series with three wins and three losses. El Paso is now 6-4 in extra innings this season, while Round Rock dropped to 3-1 in extras.
The Chihuahuas’ two runs came on a solo home run by Eguy Rosario in the first inning and a sacrifice fly by Brett Sullivan in the 10th inning. Rosario’s home run was his team-leading 20th of the season.
Jesse Scholtens pitched a scoreless 10th inning and left the automatic runner on at second base to secure his first save since 2016 at Short-Season Tri-City. All three of El Paso’s wins in the series were decided by one or two runs. The Chihuahuas do not play on Monday.
