The Round Rock Express overcame a nine-run deficit and beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 12-9 Saturday night at Dell Diamond.
El Paso led 9-0 in the fourth inning before Round Rock scored 12 unanswered runs in its comeback win.
Brian O’Grady went 3-for-5 with three RBIs for the Chihuahuas. He had a double, triple and home run before the fifth inning, but went hitless in his final two at-bats and fell a single shy of the fourth cycle in Chihuahuas history.
O’Grady and Patrick Kivlehan hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning. It was already the fifth set of back-to-back homers hit by the Chihuahuas in their 26 games this season.
El Paso’s John Andreoli went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run, moving his hitting streak to seven games.
