The El Paso Chihuahuas opened their six-game homestand with a 9-4 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes Thursday night.
Chihuahuas starter Caleb Boushley allowed only one run in six innings, while striking out seven, his most in a Triple-A game this season.
Taylor Kohlwey went 3-for-5 with three triples for El Paso. It was the first time a Chihuahuas player ever hit three triples in a game, something that had been done only nine times in the history of the Pacific Coast League (1903-2019).
Ivan Castillo went 2-for-4 with his first Triple-A home run and three RBIs. Tucupita Marcano went 2-for-4 with a walk and a home run, his sixth Triple-A homer.
San Diego Padres pitcher Nick Ramirez threw a scoreless seventh inning in his first MLB injury rehab game with El Paso.
The Chihuahuas are now 7-5 against Albuquerque this season.
Next Game: Friday at 7:05 p.m. Mountain Time from Southwest University Park. Albuquerque RHP Dereck Rodriguez (2-2, 9.44) vs. El Paso LHP Jerry Keel (1-3, 6.80).
