El Paso’s lone run came on a solo home run by Brett Nicholas in the top of the eighth inning, his 11th home run of the season.

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)

Next Game: Wednesday, 6:35 pm at Southwest University Park. Salt Lake RHP Osmer Morales (1-0, 6.91) vs. El Paso RHP Chris Huffman (1-1, 2.41). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
