Shutout! Rodriguez, Chihuahuas Blank Round Rock 4-0

Bryan Rodriguez pitched the first nine-inning shutout in El Paso Chihuahuas’ history Tuesday night in Round Rock, as the Chihuahuas beat the Express 4-0.

It was also the first nine-inning start by a Chihuahuas pitcher in team history. Rodriguez scattered five hits, struck out three and did not walk a batter.

It was the second career shutout for Rodriguez, who threw a five-inning, rain-shortened shutout in Salt Lake on April 26, 2016. The Padres’ Triple-A affiliate had a shutout at Dell Diamond almost five years ago to the day, when lefty Andrew Werner threw nine shutout innings for the Tucson Padres on August 2, 2012. Rocky Gale caught both shutouts at Round Rock.

The victory stopped the Chihuahuas from being swept for the first time this year. Rafael Ortega went 2-for-5 on the day he was activated from the DL. Ortega was in the lineup for the first time since July 18. Chase d’Arnaud went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in the win.

The Chihuahuas do not play on Wednesday.

Next Game: Thursday6:05 pm at Shrine on Airline. El Paso RHP Zach Lee (2-4, 6.79) vs. New Orleans RHP Scott Copeland (4-4, 5.10). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com
