Omaha outlasts Chihuahuas 7-6

Humberto Arteaga hit an RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Omaha Storm Chasers a 7-6 walk-off win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Saturday night at Werner Park.

The back-and-forth game featured seven lead changes.

El Paso trailed 5-4 entering the top of the ninth when a dropped pop up by Omaha and a home run by Esteban Quiroz gave the Chihuahuas a 6-5 advantage.

Jorge Bonifacio led off the bottom of the ninth with a game-tying homer and Arteaga ended it a few batters later.

Francisco Mejia went 1-for-5 in the game with a solo home run that traveled an estimated 507 feet.

Ty France went 3-for-5 with two doubles and now has 19 extra-base hits in 21 Triple-A games this season.

The loss ended El Paso’s six-game winning streak.
