Gallery+Story: Safe at home! Chihuahuas grab 8-4 win over Grizzlies

The El Paso Chihuahuas trailed 4-3 in the second inning Wednesday before scoring five unanswered runs to come back and beat the Fresno Grizzlies 8-4.

Michael Gettys’ three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth, his team-leading 21st homer of the season, provided late insurance for El Paso.

San Diego Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski reached base three times and stole a base in his second MLB injury rehab game.

Kazuhisa Makita struck out five in three scoreless relief innings in his first Triple-A game of the season. The Chihuahuas bullpen has allowed only one earned run in their last 13 outings.

The Chihuahuas have hit 182 home runs this season, the highest single-season total in team history.  The Chihuahuas won two of the five games against Fresno and five of the nine games on their homestand.

Next Game: Thursday, 6:35 pm at Smith’s Ballpark. El Paso LHP Jerry Keel (6-2, 6.42) vs. Salt Lake LHP Dillon Peters (2-1, 4.89). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
