Vegas crushes Chihuahuas 11-2; Dog’s Pacific Southern lead drops to two games

Well, the Las Vegas Aviators might have landed in El Paso on Friday but they flew right past the Chihuahuas again Saturday, this time 11-2.

El Paso (63-43) lost the second consecutive game to their nearest competitor in the Pacific Coast League-Pacific Southern Division and the Aviators (61-45) are now just two games behind the Dogs with a little more than a month left in the season.

Las Vegas hitters were just dialed in to the Dogs pitching, bringing in 11 runs on 14 hits. El Paso starter Jerry Keel threw 112 pitches in 5  2/3 innings and gave up nine runs on nine hits, including three home runs.

The Dogs’ bullpen wasn’t too shabby, they gave up two runs in three-plus innings.

The Chihuahuas’ bats, on the other hand,  were dormant. Slugger Josh Naylor (.324 BA) scored the first of their two runs in the 1st inning on a powerful RBI triple that split the diamond and squeaked through the Vegas outfielders to the center field wall, Aviators 2-1.

The Dogs’ last run came on a home run by catcher Webster Rivas (.286 BA) in the 7th inning that excited the crowd but barely concerned the Aviators as they cruised through to a win and a menacing two-game difference to reach the top spot in the division.

The winning pitcher was Parker Dunshee (6.12 ERA, 3-4) and the losing pitcher was Keel (7.85 ERA, 6-7). There was nothing to save for the Aviators as 9,159 fans sat at Southwest University Ballpark.

Next Game: Sunday, 6:05 pm at Southwest University Park. Las Vegas RHP Paul Blackburn (7-3, 4.88) vs. El Paso RHP Bryan Mitchell (0-2, 15.00). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.

Aviators bomb Chihuahuas 20-11; Vegas sets record with 11 Home Runs

The Chihuahuas set a franchise record Friday night – allowing 11 home runs to the Las Vegas Aviators in their 20-11 loss.

The game is the first in a three-game weekend series that is equally important to both teams. The Chihuahuas still lead the Pacific Coast League-Pacific Southern Division in front of their nearest competitor, you guessed it: Las Vegas.

The story of this game can be told with the pitching. Both teams had less-than-sparkling pitching through the first four innings.

El Paso had the edge with 11 runs by the end of the 3rd inning, but the Aviators never quit landing balls over the fence.

Las Vegas scored at least one run in every inning but the 2nd. Four Aviators had a multi-home run game: catcher Sean Murphy (3 HR), shortstop Jorge Mateo (2 HR), outfielder Dustin Fowler (2 HR), and outfielder Mark Payton (2 HR).

In contrast, the Dogs’ five pitchers were bombed with 22 runs and 22 hits. Starter Emmanuel  Ramirez (14.59 ERA), alone, went 4 innings and was charged with 11 hits, nine runs and four home runs.

The winning pitcher was AJ Puk (2-0, 0.00 ERA), the losing pitcher was Steven Wilson (0-1, 3.54 ERA) and there were 7,949 fans who saw the Dogs get a whoopin’ at Southwest University Ballpark.

Next Game: Saturday, 7:05 pm at Southwest University Park. Las Vegas RHP Parker Dunshee (2-4, 6.49) vs. El Paso LHP Jerry Keel (6-6, 7.50). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.
