Nashville Dominates Chihuahuas Saturday Night 19-5

The Nashville Sounds continued their dominant series in El Paso Saturday, slugging past the Chihuahuas 19-5.

Nashville has taken the first three games of the series by a combined score of 43-12. It is the first series loss in a month for the Chihuahuas, who last dropped a series in mid-June at Sacramento.

The Sounds hit five home runs Saturday, including two each by Chad Pinder and Bruce Maxwell. The Chihuahuas have the most home runs in the Pacific Coast League, yet have been out-homered 12-0 in the series so far. The Sounds have 56 hits in the three games at Southwest University Park.

Saturday’s 19 runs were the most scored against El Paso this season and it was the most lopsided loss in team history. First baseman Taylor Lindsey pitched a scoreless top of the ninth inning for the Chihuahuas, the fourth scoreless relief outing by an El Paso position player this season. El Paso turned three double plays in the loss.

Carlos Asuaje went 3-for-5 with two doubles and played third base for the first time this year.
