The Round Rock Express collected 20 hits in their 12-2 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Friday night at Dell Diamond. It was the most hits the Express have had in a game this season and also the most hits allowed by the Chihuahuas.
San Diego Padres outfielder José Azocar went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in the top of the third inning. It was Azocar’s first MLB Injury Rehab game with the Chihuahuas. The game was tied 2-2 in the fourth inning before Round Rock scored three runs in the fourth, three more in the fifth and four runs in the sixth.
The loss ended El Paso’s three-game winning streak, while the win for the Express ended their team-record 10-game losing streak. San Diego reliever Nabil Crismatt pitched two scoreless innings Friday in his second MLB Injury Rehab appearance with El Paso.
