Gallery+Story: ‘Dogs hit dingers, Baby Cakes bounce back for win 7-4

The El Paso Chihuahuas kept hitting home runs on Friday – three more for the day – but not enough to earn a win against the New Orleans, as the ‘Cakes won 7-4.

It started out promising for the Chihuahuas when they scored two in the 1st inning – both home runs on two outs.

Third baseman Ty France (.433 BA) pummeled one to straight center and hadn’t even sat down when right fielder Jose Pirela (.379 BA) launched one about 480 feet over center field and everything else before landing on Santa Fe Street, El Paso 2-0.

The El Paso lead only lasted a couple innings though. New Orleans came back and knocked in a couple runs on hits.

France answered the call again in the 3rd inning and smacked another home run to keep hope alive, El Paso 3-2.

Unfortunately, the ‘Cakes scored again in the 4th. This time with a two-run dinger by the catcher Tyler Heineman (.309 BA), New Orleans 4-3.

The Chihuahuas never really showed their teeth after that. They let out a muffled growl in the 6th inning when first baseman Jason Vosler smacked in a runner from third but was thrown out at first base, New Orleans 5-4.

Fast forward to the bottom of the 9th inning. Nope, sorry. The game ended on a strike out.

The winning pitcher was Zac Gallen (9-1, 1.77 ERA). The losing ptcher was Dietrich Enns (7-4, 5.55 ERA). R.J. Alvarez earned the save. There were 8,089 fans at Southwest University Ballpark.

Gallery+Story: Baby Cakes weather the storm, stop Chihuahuas 7-6

It didn’t seem to matter what El Paso – the team or the city – threw at the New Orleans Baby Cakes on Thursday. The city threw strong winds and lightning, but the Dogs just threw their bats out when they needed them the most, leading to a ‘Cakes 7-6 win.

Both teams posted two runs early, but New Orleans popped it open in the 3rd inning when they scored four runs.

El Paso, the team leading professional baseball in home runs at 145, came up in the 4th determined to score. But the only one to hold true was left fielder Michael Gettys, who smacked a the ball 470-plus feet to the Shriner’s Building, ‘Cakes 6-3.

The Chihuahuas third baseman Ty France came up in the 6th inning to and lined one out to center, New Orleans 7-4.

And so it went until the bottom of the 9th. The lightening calmed and actual rain began to pour all over the ‘Cakes as the Dogs went up for their last three outs or at least three runs to keep playing.

With two men on and two outs, pinch hitter Seth Mejias-Brean (.320 BA) steps into the box and bangs a bases-clearing single to left field, the ‘Cakes were up by one run.

Enter, Boog Powell (.308 BA). A good bat to have at the plate when you’re trying to rally. Powell swings hard and hits a liner…to ‘Cakes first baseman Billy Fleming and he gently taps the bag.

The winning pitcher was Hector Noesi (6-3), the losing pitcher was Dillon Overton (2-3), and he save went to Kyle Keller.

Despite the loss, El Paso leads the Pacific Coast League Southern Division with a 42-24 record.

Video+Gallery+Story: Diablos dump Baby Cakes 10-9

The New Orleans Baby Cakes came into El Paso and smacked 17 hits for nine runs. Against any other team, that might have been enough.

Against the Chihuahuas, however, that just got their bats going in El Paso’s 10-9 win.

The Cakes had the hits but just couldn’t string enough together to make the difference. New Orleans left eight runners on base with all their hits.

The El Paso Chihuahuas lead the Pacific Coast League in many offensive categories but the difference Wednesday was definitely their long-ball capability.

They hit four home runs on Wednesday to total 142 on the season, so far.

The Dogs are on pace to get near the 1974 Sacramento team who set the minor league baseball record at 305. If the Dogs stay this hot, they are projected to hit 297 – only eight team runs from the record.

Chihuahuas center fielder started off the home run show in the 1st inning with a liner that rocketed just beyond the GECU Green Seats in center, New Orleans 2-1.

The Cakes added a couple more runs on hits by the end of the 3rd inning. Then the Cakes starter, Ben Meyer, hit shortstop Luis Urias with a pitch. Then a single by third baseman Ty France. And then of course, a bomb by right fielder Jose Pirela, the game was tied.

New Orleans kept sprinkling in hit and runs. By the bottom of the 6th inning, they lead 7-5.

Two walks and an RBI single later, France stepped up to the plate with two men on. He launched a ball high over the GECU Green Seats and actually out of the park. El Paso took control, 9-7.

The cakes came back in the 8th inning to hit in a couple more runs but the homer-hitting Dogs answered with another dinger, this time by pinch hitter Seth Mejias-Brean, El Paso 10-9.

El Paso reliever Andres Munoz earned the W (2-1). There were 6,616 fans at Southwest University Park.

Chihuahuas capture Storm Chasers 6-3 in extra innings

El Paso starter Kyle McGrath pitched seven perfect innings in the Chihuahuas’ 6-3 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers Sunday afternoon at Werner Park.

Omaha’s first baserunner came on a single to lead off the eighth inning. It was the closest the Chihuahuas have ever come to a no-hitter or perfect game.

McGrath’s seven perfect innings came exactly 13 years after the most recent no-hitter by the Padres’ Triple-A affiliate, Portland’s combined perfect game at Sacramento on June 9, 2006.

The Chihuahuas scored three times in the top of the 10th inning on an RBI single by Jose Pirela and a two-run home run by Aderlin Rodriguez, his first Triple-A homer.

The win moved El Paso’s extra-inning record to 3-0, with all three extra-inning games coming on the road.

The Chihuahuas scored once in the first and twice in the second Sunday and have had at least one run in the first or second inning in all six games of their current road trip.

Francisco Mejia went 1-for-5 in the game with a solo home run that traveled an estimated 507 feet.

Video+Story: Chihuahuas drench Rainiers 24-4, Set franchise records

The Chihuahuas took the field Saturday to unleash every run they had been holding back in the last three games – which included two shutouts.

The Dogs pounded the Tacoma Rainiers 24-4, and in doing so, they set the franchise record for runs scored in single game at 24 and also the largest margin of victory at 20 runs.

El Paso (35-20) has the most prolific offense in professional baseball and they proved it Saturday. They scored at least one run in every inning except the 2nd.

Every El Paso player scored at least one run. The exception was outfielder Jose Pirela, who left the game in the 3rd inning with an injury.

There were four El Paso home runs including one by Franchy Cordero who smoked a grand-slam ball into the third level of the Big Dog House in right field. El Paso was winning 7-1 by the end of the 3rd inning.

Everything was going right for the Chihuahuas on Saturday, by the 8th inning they had already scored 16 runs and plowed through four Tacoma pitchers. At that stage, Rainiers Manager Daren Brown brought in a catcher to pitch instead of blowing through the bull pen. His name: David Shaeffer.

Shaeffer has to have the highest ERA on the planet thanks to the Chihuahuas. Shaeffer pitched in the 8th and faced nine batters. The Dogs taxed him for eight runs, the score was 24-3 El Paso.

Tacoma came back to score their last run in 9th inning but that wasn’t even a Band-Aid for the mauling they got from the hungry Chihuahuas team.

El Paso starter Dillon Overton should be mentioned for his performance. Overton went seven innings, gave up six hits and three runs, but was able to keep Tacoma’s hitters off balance. Overton earned the W (1-2) and the loss went to Justus Sheffield (2-4).

There were 8,064 fans at Southwest University Park.

Rainiers rein in Chihuahuas, ‘Dogs drop 3rd straight 8-5

The El Paso Chihuahuas – the Pacific Coast League’s most hittingest team – hadn’t scored a run in 17 innings before catcher Francisco Mejia’s sacrifice fly to center on Friday night.

The Dogs lost 8-5, but at least their bats showed a lot more life. Sure, they weren’t the sexy 400-plus-foot home runs that fans have become accustomed to this season, but they ended a streak that a first-place team hardly ever experiences.

Tacoma started their assault in the 2nd inning with a two-run blast by designated hitter Robert Perez that rocketed over center field and landed somewhere by the playground. And they just never stopped.

In the 9th inning and with a cacophony of actual barks coming from the stands on dog night, the Chihuahuas growled and showed some teeth.

Right fielder Jose Pirela lifted a ball just past the Peter Piper Pizza Porch, Tacoma 8-3.

Designated hitter Seth Mejias-Brean smacked a liner to short that took a bad bounce into shallow center field and scored two, Tacoma 8-5.

The dogs – and now their owners – barked as center fielder Franchy Cordero stood at home with two men on base and two outs. Cordero represented the tying run if he could only hit one of those sexy home runs. Heck, even a garden variety home run would have done it.

Cordero knew it. He took a big swing and launched that ball to center field – the deepest part of the outfield. It was the longest and most heartbreaking out of the night, it stayed Tacoma 8-5.

The winning pitcher was Reggie McClain (1-1, 5.14 ERA). The losing ptcher was Jerry Keel (4-2, 5.85 ERA). The save went to Matt Festa.

There were 7,011 fans and scores of canines at Southwest University Park. With the loss El Paso (34-21) has hit a three-game skid this homestand against the Tacoma Rainiers (29-27), dropping the first three games of a five-game series.

Gallery+Story: Chihuahuas drop doubleheader to Tacoma

The El Paso Chihuahuas played a doubleheader against the Tacoma Rainiers on Thursday, but the truth is, they could have stopped after the first scoreless game.

The Chihuahuas came home from victorious 3-1 road trip and went 14 scoreless inning in one day. That’s right, the team that leads the Pacific Coast League in home runs and runs, was shut out in a doubleheader against a team with a .500 winning percentage.

The Dogs seemed to have a little fire in the first game, they pulled off six hits but just couldn’t string enough together to score a run. Tacoma on the other hand, got timely hits when they needed to and brought in four runs — all on hits. The score was 4-0, Tacoma in the first game.

Tacoma’s starter, Jon Niese, threw 76 pitches in five innings, 48 for strikes in the first game.

Tacoma’s starter in the second game was Anthony Misiewicz and he did a little better against the Chihuahuas: 76 pitches in six innings, 48 for strikes.

The hit parade continued for Tacoma in the second game, only louder. Tacoma had 10 hits including two dingers while El Paso barely squeezed out three hits.

The Dogs were just outplayed Thursday. It seemed as though Tacoma was hitting everything and El Paso just couldn’t get it started all day.

The good news is tomorrow is another day and the Chihuahuas have a chance to remember that they are the PCL’s top dogs in hitting and avoid losing this four-game series.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Friday at Southwest University Park.

Chihuahuas down Grizzlies 4-1

A three-run eighth inning propelled the El Paso Chihuahuas to a 4-1 win over the Fresno Grizzlies Tuesday night at Chukchansi Park.

Luis Urias hit a solo home run in the third inning, his 13th Triple-A homer of the year.

After Fresno’s Matt Reynolds hit a solo home run in the bottom of the third, the 1-1 tie held all the way until El Paso’s five-hit eighth inning rally. Fernando Rodriguez pitched two scoreless innings to close the game and earn his fourth save of the season.

The Chihuahuas have won three straight games and took six of eight at Fresno this season.

When Urias lined out to left field in the seventh inning, it ended a stretch of nine consecutive plate appearances in which he reached base, five plate appearances short of the Pacific Coast League record.

The Chihuahuas have played five straight games without an error, their longest error-free streak of the year.
