Dogs down Sky Sox 2 to 1 with play at the plate

 

The El Paso Chihuahuas’ 2-1 win over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Wednesday ended on a play at the plate. With two outs in the top of the ninth, Luis Sardinas hit a single to center field and his Sky Sox teammate Brandon Macias tried to score from second base but was thrown out by El Paso center fielder Rymer Liriano.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for El Paso and kept the club within 2.5 games of first place Las Vegas.

Hector Gomez drove in both runs for the Chihuahuas. His solo home run in the first, his second longball in as many games, put the Chihuahuas ahead 1-0. With the score tied 1-1 in the eighth, Gomez hit an RBI double to score Hunter Renfroe and put the Chihuahuas ahead.

Robbie Erlin allowed only one run in six innings of work in his final home start of the regular season. The Chihuahuas have combined for 10 hits over the past two games, but only two of the hits were singles.
