The El Paso Chihuahuas beat the Sacramento River Cats 6-0 Sunday, El Paso’s third shutout win of the year.
The Chihuahuas and River Cats split the four-game series. Sacramento didn’t have any extra-base hits Sunday.
Dillon Overton pitched six shutout innings to get the win for the third time in his last four appearances. Matthew Batten had two hits and a walk in his first three plate appearances and reached base on eight consecutive plate appearances dating back to Saturday before an eighth inning groundout Sunday.
