Isotopes scorch Chihuahuas 12-3

It was a slow burn for the El Paso Chihuahuas who just fizzled 12-3 against the Albuquerque Isotopes in the near-100-degree temperature of Sunday’s game – which also served as the longest home game of the season.

The Isotopes were at Southwest University Park playing like a playoff-bound powerhouse making a pit stop to spank a division rival in late August – they were dominant. The only problem is they are actually a sub-.500 team, in 4th place in their division and are about 17 games behind the team they beat.

The grilling actually started in the 2nd inning for the Chihuahuas when the ‘Topes piled on five runs to make it 6-1.

The ‘Topes feasted on the Dogs’ pitching all through the game and by the 9th inning the scores was 12-2. The last run the Dogs scored was made on a bases-loaded walk. El Paso made the last three outs on two strikeouts and weak infield flyball.

The winning pitcher was Pat Dean (3-9, 7.24 ERA). The losing pitcher was Dietrich Enns (9-6, 5.84 ERA). There were 7,549 fans sizzling in their seats at Southwest University Ballpark.

El Paso is still leads the Pacific Coast League-Pacific Southern Division.
