Las Vegas Edges Chihuahuas for 3 to 2 Win

The Las Vegas 51s came back to beat El Paso for the second straight game Tuesday, defeating the Chihuahuas  3-2 at Cashman Field.

Righty Gabriel Ynoa pitched seven innings for Las Vegas, allowing two runs. Ynoa has now tossed 21.1 innings against El Paso this year, with only six runs crossing during that time.

After three scoreless innings on both sides Tuesday, the Chihuahuas hit three doubles in a four-batter span in the top of the fourth, scoring twice on the extra base hits struck by Nick Noonan, Austin Hedges and Hector Sanchez. Las Vegas third baseman T.J. Rivera ended a nine-pitch at bat in the sixth inning with a three-run home run to put the 51s ahead 3-2.

Paul Sewald threw two perfect innings to close the game and pick up his 13th save of the season.

The Chihuahuas split the four-game series and currently sit in first place, 6.5 games ahead of second place Las Vegas with 33 games to go in the Pacific Coast League regular season. El Paso finished its season-long 13-game road trip with five wins and eight losses.
