Chihuahuas blank Sacramento 6-0. ‘Dogs remain in 2nd place with 8 games left

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.

Jason Vosler went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, his 20th homer of the season.

Vosler has a 16-game hitting streak, tying Jose Pirela for El Paso’s longest streak of the year. This is the third consecutive season Vosler has hit 20 or more home runs.

First-place Las Vegas also won Sunday, placing El Paso three games back with eight to play, while Sacramento’s magic number remains one to clinch the Northern Division.

Next Game: Monday, 7:05 pm at Southwest University Park. Salt Lake RHP Drew Hutchison (1-0, 5.91) vs. El Paso LHP Dietrich Enns (11-9, 6.56).
