Chihuahuas Capture Victory in Vegas 6-3

The El Paso Chihuahuas beat Las Vegas 6-3 Monday night to sweep the 51s. It also completed the first multi-city road trip sweep in team history for the Chihuahuas, who won all seven games of the trip to Reno and Las Vegas.

The Chihuahuas seven-game winning streak is one shy of the team record.

Travis Jankowski reached base four times atop El Paso’s order Monday, going 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBIs and a walk, falling a triple shy of a cycle. The first four Las Vegas batters reached against Luis Perdomo but he settled down and pitched seven strong innings in his Triple-A debut. New York Mets lefty Jason Vargas started for Las Vegas on injury rehab and tossed four innings, taking the loss.

The Chihuahuas hit a home run in the ninth inning of all three games in Las Vegas. El Paso’s 14-5 record is the best 19-game start in team history, surpassing the 12-7 start in 2015.

The Chihuahuas do not play on Tuesday.

Box Score  |  Team Records: El Paso (14-5), Las Vegas (5-14)

  • Back in 1987 the City of Tucson stole the title away from El Paso being the Mexican Food Capital of the World. What goes around comes around! In 2012 Mountain Star Sports didn’t steal but bought the Triple A Tucson Padres and brought them to El Paso renaming them the El Paso Chihuahuas. And things have never been better for this triple A franchise, that even left the city of Tucson spinning in the dust. Such a great success and honor that have them play here in the Sun City.
