JONATHAN YTURALES EL PASO HERALD-POST
Dillon Overton pitched six shutout innings in the El Paso Chihuahuasâ€™ 3-0 win over the Sacramento River Cats Saturday night.
Overton hasnâ€™t allowed a run in his last 12 innings. Saturday was El Pasoâ€™s fourth shutout win of the season.
Matt Batten drove in two of El Pasoâ€™s three runs Saturday, with one coming on a sacrifice fly and the other on a fielderâ€™s choice. The El Paso-Sacramento series has had only six combined runs in 19 innings.
Two-time MLB All-Star Johnny Cueto pitched six shutout innings for Sacramento on injury rehab Saturday.
The Chihuahuasâ€™ win combined with Saturdayâ€™s loss by first-place Las Vegas puts the Chihuahuas one game back with two to play.
In the event of a first-place tie at the end of the season, the Chihuahuas would win the division through the Pacific Coast Leagueâ€™s tiebreaker rules.
Next Game:Â Sunday, 6:05 pm at Raley Field. El Paso LHP Dietrich Enns (11-10, 6.62) vs. Sacramento RHP Carlos Navas (0-5, 5.58). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso andÂ www.epchihuahuas.com.
