Batten’s bat lifts Chihuahuas over Bees 8-6

Matthew Batten hit a second-inning grand slam in the El Paso Chihuahuas’ 8-6 win over the Salt Lake Bees Saturday night at Smith’s Ballpark.

Batten had three hits and seven RBIs in the win, one RBI short of the Chihuahuas’ single-game record, also set in Salt Lake by Austin Hedges on July 10, 2016.

Dietrich Enns got the win for the second straight start Saturday and has allowed only six earned runs in his last 16.2 innings.

Brad Wieck picked up his second save in as many games after arriving from San Diego.

Batten’s grand slam was El Paso’s fourth of the season.

The Chihuahuas have won two of the three games in Salt Lake and three of their last four games overall.

Next Game: Sunday, 1:05 pm at Smith’s Ballpark. El Paso RHP Tyler Higgins (3-0, 3.38) vs. Salt Lake RHP Matt Harvey (MLB rehab). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
