Gallery+Story: Bees for Breakfast! Chihuahuas Sweep Salt Lake with 5-2 Win Sunday

The El Paso Chihuahuas beat the Salt Lake Bees 5-2 Sunday at Southwest University Park, giving El Paso three consecutive wins over Salt Lake.

The Chihuahuas swept the Bees, their second series sweep of the year and their first since mid-June against Tacoma.

Jabari Blash went 1-for2 with a home run and a walk. The homer was his third in his last seven games. Franchy Cordero also homered, a towering fly ball that flew over the batter’s eye in the bottom of the third.

El Paso starter Bryan Rodriguez allowed only one run in seven innings of work, his longest start of the season.
