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.

Aviators down Chihuahuas 9-6; Southern Division lead now at 2 games

Las Vegas designated hitter Seth Brown hit two home runs in the Aviators’ 9-6 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Tuesday night at Las Vegas Ballpark.

It was Brown’s third multi-homer game of the season.

The loss dropped El Paso’s first place lead in the Southern Division to two games, with five head-to-head matchups between the two teams over the next five nights.

The Aviators and Chihuahuas are the top two teams in the Pacific Coast League in both runs and hits.

Josh Naylor went 4-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI in the loss for El Paso. Tuesday was the Chihuahuas’ first loss at Las Vegas Ballpark in six games this season.

Next Game: Wednesday, 8:05 pm at Las Vegas Ballpark. El Paso LHP Dillon Overton (5-4, 6.78) vs. Las Vegas LHP Sean Manaea (MLB rehab). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com.

‘Bases Loaded’ Exhibit set to open at Museum of History July 11th

The El Paso Museum of History (EPMH) invites the public to celebrate the opening of its newest exhibition, Bases Loaded: El Paso and Beyond.

“Baseball, like apple pie, is one of those ideas that is inseparable from the idea of America,” said El Paso Museum of History Director Dr. Vladimir von Tsurikov. “Here at the Museum, we’re excited to take that national mythos and examine it from the unique El Paso perspective.”

The exhibit, which opens at 6:30 p.m., July 11., celebrates the local and national history of baseball starting with its pre-Civil War origins to the Chihuahuas arriving in El Paso.

In addition to tracing the evolution of baseball’s legacy as a national pastime, the exhibit also highlights baseball’s intersections with race, like the sport’s role in Mexico and key events in breaking the color barrier.

“As visitors move through the exhibit, they are invited to explore how different groups across the United States have shaped baseball’s beginnings, rise, and continued popularity,” museum officials shared. “Interactive displays, like a walkable baseball diamond and Chihuahuas fan photo booth, transform the space into an immersive historical experience.”

Materials for the exhibit have been sourced from across El Paso’s enthusiastic baseball community.

Many of the artifacts for Bases Loaded have been provided by Fernando Grado, an El Paso native and baseball enthusiast. His personal collection, which he began in his youth, includes local memorabilia from the Browns and Diablos as well as collectibles from eminent players like Jackie Robinson and “Shoeless” Joe Jackson.

Also on display are items borrowed from the El Paso Chihuahuas’ own archive.

The exhibit runs through January 2020 and is free and open to the public.
