51s Shutout Chihuahuas 2-0; El Paso Takes Series 3 to 2

The Las Vegas 51s handed El Paso its first shutout loss of the season Monday afternoon, as the Chihuahuas fell 2-0. The Chihuahuas won three of the five games in the season-opening series.

Monday’s game entered the seventh inning in a scoreless tie before Las Vegas loaded the bases on three consecutive walks. Phillip Evans hit a ground ball to third baseman Diego Goris, who stepped on third base for one out but overthrew first baseman Jamie Romak attempting a double play, leading to a 51s run.

Las Vegas added its second run one inning later on a two-out RBI single by Amed Rosario.

The Chihuahuas had late chances but left four runners on base in the final four innings and did not score. El Paso starter Bryan Rodriguez tossed five shutout innings, giving the Chihuahuas’ rotation 28.1 innings and only two earned runs allowed this season.

Former Padres minor leaguer Wilfredo Boscan also threw five shutout innings. Jose Pirela went 2-for-4 and Goris went 3-for-4 in the loss.
