The El Paso Chihuahuas’ team-record 12-game winning streak ended Thursday afternoon in Fresno, as the Grizzlies shut out El Paso 2-0. It was the first time the Chihuahuas were shut out this season.

Fresno starter Kyle McGowin pitched six shutout innings and struck out nine, establishing a new Grizzlies’ 2019 high for strikeouts in a game by an individual pitcher. McGowin also hit two doubles and scored a run. El Paso relievers Gerardo Reyes, Eric Yardley and Tyler Higgins each threw a scoreless outing Thursday.

The Chihuahuas had at least one runner reach base in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings. Thursday was El Paso’s first day-game loss after eight wins this year in day games. All four games of the series in Fresno were decided by one or two runs.
