Dodgers double up Chihuahuas 2-1

The El Paso Chihuahuas began their final series of the season with a 2-1 loss to the Oklahoma City Dodgers at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

El Paso’s Jesse Scholtens pitched eight innings in the loss, which was the longest start by a Chihuahuas pitcher this season.

Chihuahuas right fielder Brian O’Grady went 2-for-4 with a double in the loss, while shortstop Matt Batten went 1-for-3 with a walk.

Oklahoma City’s two runs came on a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth by third baseman Cristian Santana.

El Paso’s lone run came when Matt Batten ran home from third base on a passed ball in the sixth inning.

At two hours and five minutes, Wednesday was the Chihuahuas’ quickest nine-inning game of the season and was 12 minutes faster than the second-quickest game (2:17, July 26 vs. Albuquerque).

Next Game: Thursday at 6:05 p.m. Mountain Time from Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. El Paso RHP Pedro Avila (1-0, 3.22) vs. Oklahoma City TBA.

The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and online.
