Tacoma’s Jack Reinheimer hit a game-ending single in the bottom of the 10th inning Monday, as the Rainiers beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 3-2.

It was the second extra-inning game of the series, with the Chihuahuas winning the first one on May 6.

The Chihuahuas trailed 1-0 in the top of the sixth inning Monday when Patrick Kivlehan hit a two-run home run to left field. It was the second straight day Kivlehan had a two-out, two-run, go-ahead hit. Kivlehan was 4-for-5 and fell a triple shy of a cycle.

Ivan Castillo went 3-for-4 and is now 9-for-18 this season. Ben Ruta went 2-for-3 with a walk and two stolen bases for the Chihuahuas.
