Chihuahuas split two games vs Oklahoma City Monday

In game one, the El Paso Chihuahuas trailed 7-0 to the Oklahoma City Dodgers in the fifth inning Sunday and rallied to tie the game 7-7 before the rain suspension in the seventh inning.

Gosuke Katoh hit the go-ahead home run in the bottom of the eighth inning Monday to give the Chihuahuas an 8-7 comeback win.

Taylor Kohlwey hit an inside-the-park grand slam in the bottom of the fifth inning Sunday. It was the fifth inside-the-park home run in Chihuahuas history and the first inside-the-park grand slam ever by a Chihuahuas batter. It was El Paso’s third grand slam of the season.

El Paso starter Jerry Keel hit an RBI single in the fifth inning, the third RBI by a Chihuahuas starting pitcher in the series.
