El Paso had an early lead Saturday before the Oklahoma City Dodgers scored the game’s next 13 runs and beat the Chihuahuas 13-2.
The Chihuahuas have lost four straight games for the third time this season and after three consecutive winning months, El Paso has dropped 10 of the 13 games so far in August.
Patrick Kivlehan went 2-for-3 in the loss and is 5-for-7 in the series. Oklahoma City’s Charlie Culberson went 2-for-5 with a home run and five RBIs after entering the game on a 1-for-22 slump. El Paso’s runs came on a third inning RBI single by Manuel Margot and a ninth-inning RBI single by Diego Goris.
Frank Garces suffered the loss after allowing five earned runs in five innings of work, one start after he went seven innings without any earned runs against him.
