Isotopes’ Rally Nukes Chihuahuas 9-6; Blash Blasts Two Home Runs in Loss

The El Paso Chihuahuas had an early three-run lead but weren’t able to pick up their third consecutive win, falling to the Albuquerque Isotopes 9-6 Tuesday.

Jabari Blash hit two home runs for El Paso, bringing his Triple-A season total to seven.  It was the first multi-home run game by a Chihuahuas player since Jose Pirela on May 20 versus Oklahoma City.

River Stevens collected his first two Triple-A hits, going 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a hit by pitch. Stevens started at third base for El Paso one day after being transferred from Double-A San Antonio.

Carter Capps allowed one run in one inning in his return to the Chihuahuas bullpen on MLB rehab.

The Chihuahuas had two impressive outfield assists Tuesday. The first came when Diego Goris relayed a throw from left field in the second inning to cut down a runner at home plate and the second when Rafael Ortega started a double play in right center field by catching a fly ball then throwing to third base to nab the runner trying to tag up from second.

Next Game: Wednesday, 7:05 pm at Isotopes Park. El Paso RHP Kyle Lloyd (0-1, 5.84) vs. Albuquerque TBA. The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and

Chihuahuas Deconstruct Isotopes 10-4; Magic Number Down to 6

The El Paso Chihuahuas scored seven late unanswered runs to come back and beat the Albuquerque Isotopes 10-4 Friday night. The win gives the Chihuahuas a magic number of six and puts El Paso in first place by 5.5 games with 10 regular season games remaining.

The Chihuahuas were trailing 4-3 with the bases full of Isotopes in the bottom of the sixth inning when new reliever Phil Maton came in and struck out back-to-back hitters to keep the deficit at one.

A half-inning later, El Paso rallied for four runs on five hits, while also benefiting by two Isotopes’ errors, to take a 7-4 lead. Three more runs in the eighth added to El Paso’s advantage.

Manuel Margot went 3-for-6 with two RBIs atop El Paso’s lineup, while Austin Hedges went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and his 19th home run of the season. The Chihuahuas scored 10 runs on 18 hits after going five straight games without double-digit hit total.

El Paso’s bullpen pitched 3.2 scoreless innings Friday and has now allowed only three runs in its last 25.2 innings.
