Josh Naylor had three hits in the El Paso Chihuahuas’ 5-2 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes Thursday night at Southwest University Park. Naylor now has 44 hits in 34 games, the third-highest hit total in the Pacific Coast League.

Esteban Quiroz went 2-for-3 with three RBIs, including one on a second-inning solo home run, his fourth home run of the homestand. Chris Stewart added his first homer of the year in the fourth, El Paso’s league-leading 85th through 35 games.

The Chihuahuas have taken two of the first three games against Albuquerque and could clinch their seventh consecutive series victory with a win Friday. Colorado Rockies pitchers Jake McGee and Chris Rusin both pitched scoreless MLB injury rehab outings Thursday for the Isotopes.
