Shutout! Rodriguez, Chihuahuas Blank Round Rock 4-0

Bryan Rodriguez pitched the first nine-inning shutout in El Paso Chihuahuas’ history Tuesday night in Round Rock, as the Chihuahuas beat the Express 4-0.

It was also the first nine-inning start by a Chihuahuas pitcher in team history. Rodriguez scattered five hits, struck out three and did not walk a batter.

It was the second career shutout for Rodriguez, who threw a five-inning, rain-shortened shutout in Salt Lake on April 26, 2016. The Padres’ Triple-A affiliate had a shutout at Dell Diamond almost five years ago to the day, when lefty Andrew Werner threw nine shutout innings for the Tucson Padres on August 2, 2012. Rocky Gale caught both shutouts at Round Rock.

The victory stopped the Chihuahuas from being swept for the first time this year. Rafael Ortega went 2-for-5 on the day he was activated from the DL. Ortega was in the lineup for the first time since July 18. Chase d’Arnaud went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in the win.

The Chihuahuas do not play on Wednesday.

Next Game: Thursday6:05 pm at Shrine on Airline. El Paso RHP Zach Lee (2-4, 6.79) vs. New Orleans RHP Scott Copeland (4-4, 5.10). The game will air on 600 ESPN El Paso and www.epchihuahuas.com

Round Rock Rolls Chihuahuas 14-10

The Round Rock Express scored 12 runs before making their fourth offensive out of the game and carried that early lead to a 14-10 victory over the El Paso Chihuahuas Friday night. The loss ended El Paso’s six-game winning streak and the team-record eight-game home winning streak.

Round Rock brought home five runs in a ten-batter top of the first inning, with a rally including seven hits, four of which were doubles. The Express plated seven more runs in the second inning, with four runners scoring on Jared Hoying’s grand slam to right field.

The Chihuahuas tried to get back in the game late by scoring three times in the eighth and twice more in the ninth but former Chihuahuas’ reliever Anthony Carter got Casey McElroy to ground out and end the game.

The Chihuahuas’ potent offense was still present despite the loss, as El Paso clubbed 15 hits to improve the team batting average to .319. El Paso leads the Pacific Coast League in batting average, hits, runs, doubles and triples. Alex Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a double and two RBIs Saturday, extending his hitting streak to a Chihuahuas’ record 18 games.

Dickerson surpassed Reno’s Mike Freeman for the longest hitting streak in the PCL this season.

Rehabbing Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-3 with a walk, falling a home run shy of the Chihuahuas’ first cycle, while playing both second base and third base. Round Rock’s 21 hits fell three shy of the Express’ single-game hits record.
