File - El Paso notched its' sixth win in its last seven games and 10th victory in its last 14 tries. The Chihuahuas have a .500 record for the first time since July 26.

Dogs Dunk River Cats 5-2; Villanueva Hits 2nd Home Run of Series

Matt Magill pitched six shutout innings in the El Paso Chihuahuas’ 5-2 win over the Sacramento River Cats Tuesday night at Southwest University Park. Magill allowed only two hits in the win.

Christian Villanueva broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the third with a two-run home run, his second homer in as many nights. The Chihuahuas are now 23-10 after scoring the first run of a game.

Villanueva and Jose Rondon both fell one hit shy of a cycle, with Villanueva needing a single and Rondon needing a triple. They were both due up in the bottom of the ninth but the at-bats didn’t occur because of El Paso’s lead.

Carter Capps pitched a 1-2-3 inning in relief, while lefty Brad Wieck allowed one run in one inning in his Triple-A debut. Wieck joined the Chihuahuas bullpen earlier in the day, coming up from Double-A San Antonio.

Nick Buss went 2-for-4 with an RBI and is hitting .380 through his first 55 games this year.

Next Game: Wednesday, 7:05 pm at Southwest University Park. Sacramento LHP Andrew Suarez (1-1, 5.40) vs. El Paso RHP Trevor Cahill (MLB Rehab). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
