Memphis blanks El Paso 2-0

Four Memphis pitchers combined on a one-hit shutout Sunday over the El Paso Chihuahuas, as the Redbirds won 2-0.

Memphis has won two of the three games in the series so far.

It was the first time in Chihuahuas history the team was held to fewer than two hits in a game.

Dillon Overton allowed one earned run in five innings Sunday, giving El Paso starting pitchers 17 innings and only three earned runs allowed in the series.

El Paso’s lone hit was a fifth-inning single by catcher Webster Rivas.

Sunday was just the fourth time in 113 games this season that El Paso was shut out. The game was delayed two hours and 57 minutes after a pregame rainstorm.

Next Game: Monday, 5:35 pm at AutoZone Park. El Paso LHP Dietrich Enns (10-7, 6.20) vs. Memphis RHP Chris Ellis (3-5, 7.44). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
