Fireworks! Asuaje Hits for Cycle, Chihuahuas Chew Up Redbirds 13-1

Carlos Asuaje hit the second cycle in El Paso Chihuahuas history Saturday in a 13-1 win over the Memphis Redbirds.

It was the first cycle of Asuaje’s professional career. The Chihuahuas’ previous cycle was hit by Taylor Lindsey on July 19, 2016, also in a home game against the Redbirds.

The Chihuahuas scored six times in a 10-batter bottom of the second inning and the Redbirds never mounted a comeback threat for the remainder of the game. El Paso added multiple runs in the fourth, seventh and eighth innings.

Asuaje finished the night 4-for-5 with five RBIs. El Paso catcher Brett Nicholas went 3-for-5 with three RBIs in the win.

All nine spots in the El Paso batting order reached base on a hit or a walk. Luis Perdomo allowed one run in six innings to record his fourth win.

Brothers Luis and Ramon Urias played against each other in the game.
