Tacoma Edges Chihuahuas 3-2; Dogs Return Home Thursday

The El Paso Chihuahuas had a late lead Tuesday but lost to the Tacoma Rainiers 3-2 at Cheney Stadium.

The Chihuahuas and Rainiers split the four-game series and El Paso won nine of the 16 meetings between the teams in 2017.

The Chihuahuas scored once each in the first and fourth innings to go ahead 2-0, the sixth consecutive game in which they took the first lead. Leading 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Chihuahuas reliever Jose Valdez surrendered a two-run home run inside the right field pole to Joey Wong, giving the Rainiers a 3-2 advantage.

The Chihuahuas had key opportunities to add runs in the sixth when they loaded the bases with no outs and in the eighth when they began the inning with three straight hits, but did not score in either frame.

Jordan Lyles had his longest and best start to date with El Paso, allowing only one run in 5.2 innings. Adam Cimber had his second scoreless outing of the series and Kevin Quackenbush pitched a 1-2-3 eighth out of the Chihuahuas bullpen.

The Chihuahuas do not play on Wednesday.

Next Game: Thursday, 6:35 pm at Southwest University Park. Sacramento TBA vs. El Paso RHP Jordan Lyles (0-1, 6.75). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
