El Paso Strong

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Round Rock infielder Alex De Goti hit for the cycle in the Express’ 20-12 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Wednesday night. It was the first cycle against El Paso since Fresno’s J.D. Davis on May 17, 2018. The Express scored at least one run in all nine innings.

Aderlin Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs for the Chihuahuas. El Paso struck four home runs in the game, moving the team’s season total to 226, five shy of tying the modern era Pacific Coast League record for homers in a season. Ty France went 4-for-5 in the loss, moving his league-leading batting average to .399.

Austin Allen and Rodriguez hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning, El Paso’s first set of back-to-back homers since July 19th at Albuquerque (Seth Mejias-Brean and Esteban Quiroz). Round Rock’s 23 hits were the most allowed in a game by El Paso this season.
