The Oklahoma City Dodgers scored seven runs in an 11-batter top of the ninth inning and beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 10-1 Sunday afternoon at Southwest University Park. The Dodgers and Chihuahuas split the six-game series.
The Chihuahuas’ run came in the bottom of the sixth inning on Matthew Batten’s RBI single. Batten also had a hit and an RBI on Saturday night. El Paso relievers Kyle Tyler, Wen-Hua Sung, Travis Bergen and Tayler Scott all pitched scoreless outings on Sunday. It was Tyler’s first 2022 regular season game after being claimed on waivers four different times in the last 21 days.
