Chihuahuas fight back to top Aces 6-4


The El Paso Chihuahuas trailed 4-0 in the seventh inning Friday before scoring six unanswered runs to beat the Reno Aces 6-4. The victory gives El Paso back-to-back wins for the first time in 2019.

The Chihuahuas had four hits and a walk in the seventh inning, including a game-tying double by Michael Gettys. Jose Pirela’s broken-bat, bases-loaded, two-run single came with two outs in the eighth to put El Paso ahead. Luis Perdomo pitched the final two innings to secure the first save of his professional career.

Dietrich Enns pitched four shutout innings, allowing only one hit and striking out four for El Paso. Ty France went 3-for-4 with three singles for the Chihuahuas. Five of El Paso’s nine games this year have been decided by one or two runs.
