Express edge Chihuahuas 3-2, split series with Round Rock

Elier Hernandez hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning Tuesday in the Round Rock Express’ 3-2 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas.

The teams split their six-game series.

El Paso’s Jose Azocar went 1-for-4 with an RBI in the loss. He’s now hit safely in 13 consecutive games, tying a career high he first set with Low-A West Michigan in 2016. Azocar has 11 RBIs in his 14 Triple-A games this season.

Brian O’Grady hit a solo home run in the first inning Tuesday, his first Triple-A homer since July 30 at Sugar Land.

Chihuahuas infielder Pedro Florimón stole second base in the third inning and is now 11-for-11 stealing bases this season.

The Chihuahuas do not play on Wednesday.
