Chihuahuas Rally Late, Bag River Cats 5-3

The El Paso Chihuahuas put together a late comeback Thursday and beat the Sacramento River Cats 5-3 at Raley Field.

The Chihuahuas split the four-game series in Sacramento and had five wins and three losses on their post all-star break right-game road trip.

El Paso starter Kyle Lloyd allowed three earned runs in six innings while pitching in front of family and friends near his hometown.

The Chihuahuas trailed 3-2 with two outs in the eighth when consecutive RBI hits by Peter Van Gansen, Christian Villanueva and Nick Buss put El Paso ahead 5-3. Carter Capps’ two-inning save kept the score at 5-3.

Chase d’Arnaud played first base for just the second time in his career and started two double plays. Dusty Coleman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, while Buss and Rocky Gale also had two hits each.
