Chihuahuas PCL Championship Bound! Renfroe’s 2-Run Homer Lifts Dogs over Tacoma

Pacific Coast League MVP Hunter Renfroe had the biggest hit of the Chihuahuas’ season in El Paso’s 5-4 win over the Tacoma Rainiers Saturday night.

It was El Paso’s third consecutive win to clinch the best of five series against Tacoma, sending the Chihuahuas to their first championship series in team history.

The Chihuahuas trailed 4-2 in the top of the seventh when a two-out error by Tacoma third baseman Zach Shank prolonged El Paso’s inning. The Chihuahuas took advantage later in the inning when Carlos Asuaje hit an RBI single to get within one.

Trailing by a run in the top of the eighth, Austin Hedges walked to begin the inning and scored one batter later when Renfroe hit a high13726636_1187282161331344_131961256862919344_n home run that snuck over the left field wall and gave the Chihuahuas a 5-4 late advantage.

Tacoma had the potential tying runs on base in both the eighth and ninth innings but El Paso’s bullpen held on to secure the win.

The Chihuahuas outscored the Rainiers 24-11 in the series. El Paso’s back-to-back wins at Cheney Stadium were especially impressive, where Tacoma had a league best 46-26 home record during the regular season.

Renfroe went 3-for-4 with a double and the homer after starting the series 0-for-11. Manuel Margot went 2-for-4 Saturday and had nine hits in the four-game series.

Story+Gallery: Tacoma Tops Chihuahuas in Extra Innings 6-5; Takes Lead 1-0 in PCL Playoffs

The El Paso Chihuahuas had a two-run ninth-inning comeback to tie the Tacoma Rainiers but eventually lost 6-5 in 12 innings in Game 1 of the Pacific Coast League playoffs Wednesday night.

It was the first extra-inning postseason game in Chihuahuas’ team history.

The Rainiers scored three times on five hits against Frank Garces in the second, but the Chihuahuas got within one over the next three innings on an RBI single by Diego Goris and a solo home run by Manuel Margot. Trailing 5-2 in the sixth inning, the Chihuahuas got back within two when Tacoma shortstop Tyler Smith dropped a pop up with two runners on.

The Chihuahuas were down 5-3 in the bottom of the ninth when Nick Noonan and Manuel Margot hit doubles on back-to-back pitches to get within one and put the tying run on second base with no outs. After Hunter Renfroe walked, Austin Hedges hit a hard ground ball to Tacoma second baseman Mike Freeman, who flipped to second base for the inning’s second out.

As the shortstop Smith tried to turn a game-ending double play, Renfroe’s hard slide forced a high throw and caused the tying run to score with two outs in the ninth inning.

El Paso had opportunities in extra innings, including having the winning run at second with one out in the bottom of the 11th, but Tacoma reliever Al Alburquerque retired Renfroe and Hedges to end the inning.

The Rainiers strung together three straight singles in the 12th, including an RBI single to left field by Zach Shank, the eventual game-winning hit.

Margot went 4-for-6 with all four hits coming after the fourth inning. The Chihuahuas went 2-for-19 with runners in scoring position in the loss.

Story + Pics: Rainiers Survive Chihuahuas Rally, Win 7 to 5

Former San Diego Padre and El Paso Chihuahua Joe Wieland put together his third strong start of the year against El Paso on Saturday, as the Rainiers beat the Chihuahuas 7-5.

Wieland has thrown 18.2 innings versus El Paso this season and allowed only four runs, striking out 24 and walking two.

Two nights after a five-hit game, Manuel Margot went 3-for-5 with an RBI. Margot entered Saturday with the second most outfield assists in the Pacific Coast League and added another one in the top of the fourth inning, throwing out Tacoma’s Jesus Sucre on a play at the plate. Hector Sanchez and Nick Noonan both hit late home runs for El Paso.

El Paso is now on a rare stretch where the club has lost three of its last four series. The Rainiers won 10 of the 16 meetings between the two teams during the 2016 regular season. Tacoma had an excellent offensive series, piling up 58 hits in the four games.

Goris made a quick play on a ground ball that hit third base to end the game and give Keith Hessler his second save of the year.

Patrick Kivlehan went 0-for-3 with a run scored in his first game with the Chihuahuas after being claimed on waivers by San Diego earlier in the week.

Southwest Slugfest! Tacoma holds off Chihuahuas Comeback 16 to 15

The Tacoma Rainiers held off El Paso’s second late comeback attempt Thursday and beat the Chihuahuas 16-15 in a chaotic game at Southwest University Park.

The Chihuahuas have lost four consecutive games for the first time since April 10-14, with the last three losses of that streak also coming against Tacoma.

Trailing 10-4 at the seventh inning stretch, the Chihuahuas pounded eight hits in a ten-batter span and scored six times to tie the game. The Rainiers immediately countered with six runs of their own to go ahead 16-10, before El Paso brought in three runs in the eighth and two in the ninth at the end of the one-run loss.

Manuel Margot went 5-for-6 with two home runs and four RBIs, his first five-hit game and first multi-home run game at the Triple-A level. Margot had two extra-base hits while he was a triple shy of the cycle, doubling in the seventh inning and cranking his second homer in the ninth.

Hector Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and Nick Torres went 2-for-5 with three RBIs in the loss. Hunter Renfroe and Diego Goris had three hits each and joined Margot as players who fell a triple shy of a cycle Thursday. The Chihuahuas led off the first three innings with home runs.

El Paso entered the game with a dependable .981 fielding percentage, good for fifth-best in the league, but made three errors Thursday leading to eight unearned runs.

Tacoma Tramples Chihuahuas 9 to 2

Sam Gaviglio shut down the El Paso Chihuahuas’ offense Wednesday for the second time in six days, as the Tacoma Rainiers won at Southwest University Park 9-2.

Gaviglio allowed one run in six innings, after pitching 7.2 scoreless innings against the Chihuahuas on July 29 at Cheney Stadium.

Rainiers’ first baseman D.J. Peterson went 5-for-5 with an inside-the-park home run to lead off the seventh inning. El Paso center fielder Auston Bousfield nearly made a leaping catch on the play, but the ball bounced sharply to the right field corner and Peterson rounded the bases without a play at the plate.

It was the second inside-the-park home run in Southwest University Park history, with the first coming on April 29, 2014 off the bat of Fresno’s Gary Brown.

Nick Torres went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the second inning on his first at bat in El Paso. Carlos Asuaje and Nick Noonan also collected two hits in the loss. Infielder Taylor Lindsey came in to pitch and threw knuckleballs in a perfect ninth inning, his third pitching appearance of the season.

Dogs Drop Another to Tacoma 2 to 1, Lose 2nd Straight Series

The Tacoma Rainiers scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to break a late scoreless tie and then beat the El Paso Chihuahuas 2-1.

Tacoma’s runs came on a solo home run by Patrick Kivlehan and a two-out, two-strike RBI double by former Chihuahua Daniel Robertson.

The Rainiers’ insurance run proved valuable when the Chihuahuas scored once in the top of the ninth on Austin Hedges’ sacrifice fly.

Frank Garces hadn’t allowed any runs in seven innings before surrendering two in the eighth in the loss. Tacoma starter Sam Gaviglio tossed 7.2 shutout innings in a no-decision for Tacoma.

The Rainiers took three of the five games, handing El Paso its second consecutive series loss, the first time the Chihuahuas have suffered back-to-back series losses since the first road trip of the season.

Neither team had a runner reach third base in the first seven innings of Friday’s pitchers’ duel and neither side issued a walk until the eighth. Friday’s time of game was quicker than both of Thursday’s seven-inning doubleheader games.

Chihuahuas Top Tacoma 6 to 0

Carlos Pimentel pitched six shutout innings and allowed only one hit in the El Paso Chihuahuas’ 6-0 win over the Tacoma Rainiers Tuesday night at Cheney Stadium. It was El Paso’s second straight shutout, after blanking Sacramento 4-0 in Game 2 of Sunday’s doubleheader.

The Rainiers had only two hits, tying a Chihuahuas’ team record for fewest hits allowed in a game. Tacoma did not have a player reach second base Tuesday. Michael Dimock threw the final three innings to record his third save. El Paso has surrendered only five hits in the last two games combined.

The Chihuahuas’ offense produced all six runs on two-out hits, including a two-run home run by Diego Goris in the top of the second and a two-run double by Hector Sanchez in the top of the eighth. El Paso’s win paired with Las Vegas’ loss in Fresno puts the Chihuahuas in first place by 7.5 games, the largest first place lead the team has ever had.
