All three runs in Thursday’s game at Raley Field came on solo homers, as the Sacramento River Cats beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 2-1.
Even with the loss, the Chihuahuas continue to lead the Pacific Southern Division by 3.5 games, with 24 to play in the regular season.
El Paso starter Dillon Overton allowed one run in six innings in a no-decision Thursday. Sacramento has scored just one run against Overton in 17 innings this season.
The loss ended El Paso’s seven-game winning streak, which fell one win short of tying the team record for consecutive wins.
