Chihuahuas lose to Aviators 9-5

The Las Vegas Aviators scored four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to break a late tie and beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 9-5 Friday night at Las Vegas Ballpark. 

The Chihuahuas scored two early runs against longtime major league pitcher Homer Bailey, who was making his first start with the Oakland A’s Triple-A affiliate.

One of those runs came on a solo home run from Matthew Batten, who went 2-for-2 with a walk and two RBIs. Batten now has at least one hit in 17 of his last 19 games.

Taylor Kohlwey went 2-for-5 for the Chihuahuas and now has four consecutive multi-hit games.

San Diego Padres player Austin Nola led off and went 1-for-5 in his seventh MLB injury rehab game with El Paso.

The Aviators have won the first two games of the series.
