El Paso second baseman Ivan Castillo made a jumping catch with two outs in the top of the ninth inning Thursday to rob Cody Bellinger of a hit and seal a 6-4 Chihuahuas win over the Oklahoma City Dodgers.

The victory snapped El Paso’s six-game losing streak.

Nick Tanielu and Patrick Kivlehan both hit home runs in the win for El Paso. John Andreoli reached base four times for the Chihuahuas, going 2-for-2 with a double, an RBI and two walks.

The Chihuahuas are now 6-1 in home games.
