Long ball lifts Chihuahuas to 9-4 win over Isotopes in series opener


EL PASO, Texas — The El Paso Chihuahuas opened their six-game homestand with a 9-4 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes Thursday night. Chihuahuas starter Caleb Boushley allowed only one run in six innings, while striking out seven, his most in a Triple-A game this season.

Taylor Kohlwey went 3-for-5 with three triples for El Paso. It was the first time a Chihuahuas player ever hit three triples in a game, something that had been done only nine times in the history of the Pacific Coast League (1903-2019). Ivan Castillo went 2-for-4 with his first Triple-A home run and three RBIs. Tucupita Marcano went 2-for-4 with a walk and a home run, his sixth Triple-A homer.

San Diego Padres pitcher Nick Ramirez threw a scoreless seventh inning in his first MLB injury rehab game with El Paso. The Chihuahuas are now 7-5 against Albuquerque this season.
