OKC ko’s Chihuahuas 5-1

The Oklahoma City Dodgers held the El Paso Chihuahuas to four hits in their 5-1 road win at Southwest University Park on Friday night.

Oklahoma City’s Yefry Ramirez picked up the win in his first game against El Paso this season, after going 4-0 against the ‘Dogs in 2021.

El Paso’s lone run came on a solo home run to right-center field by catcher Luis Campusano, his first homer of the year.

The Chihuahuas have hit at least one home run in all four games of the series. El Paso shortstop C.J. Hinojosa went 2-for-4 with a double.

Relievers Grant Gavin, Tayler Scott and Tyler Higgins all pitched scoreless outings Friday.

The loss snapped El Paso’s three-game winning streak.
