Skeeters stop Chihuahuas 5-1

The Dogs’ lone run came on a solo home run by designated hitter Luis Campusano, his 14th homer of the season.

El Paso’s Steven Wilson struck out four in two perfect relief innings. Matthew Batten went 2-for-4 atop the order.

The Chihuahuas left on at least one runner in the fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth innings in the loss.
