Dodgers destroy Chihuahuas 16-1

The Oklahoma City Dodgers hit five home runs in their 16-1 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Tuesday night at Southwest University Park.

The two teams are tied for first place in the East Division with five head-to-head games remaining in the series and eight total games remaining in the season for each team.

El Paso left fielder Taylor Kohlwey went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run and one RBI in the loss. Kohlwey now has 32 doubles this season, which is tied for second in the Pacific Coast League, one behind El Paso’s Eguy Rosario for the league lead.

Chihuahuas right fielder Brandon Dixon went 0-for-4, ending his career-high 19-game hitting streak. El Paso reliever Mason Fox pitched a scoreless top of the ninth inning and has tossed three scoreless outings since arriving from Double-A San Antonio. Tuesday’s 15-run loss was the biggest margin of defeat for El Paso this season.
