Grizzlies blank Chihuahuas 2-0, end win streak

The El Paso Chihuahuas’ team-record 12-game winning streak ended Thursday afternoon in Fresno, as the Grizzlies shut out El Paso 2-0.

It was the first time the Chihuahuas were shut out this season.

Fresno starter Kyle McGowin pitched six shutout innings and struck out nine, establishing a new Grizzlies’ 2019 high for strikeouts in a game by an individual pitcher. McGowin also hit two doubles and scored a run.

El Paso relievers Gerardo Reyes, Eric Yardley and Tyler Higgins each threw a scoreless outing Thursday.

The Chihuahuas had at least one runner reach base in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings. Thursday was El Paso’s first day-game loss after eight wins this year in day games.

All four games of the series in Fresno were decided by one or two runs.

Next Game: Friday, 7:05 pm at Southwest University Park. Salt Lake RHP Jaime Barria (1-0, 5.06) vs. El Paso RHP Bryan Mitchell (0-0, 7.11). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
