Austin Allen’s high walk-off single to right field ended the El Paso Chihuahuas’ 9-8 win over the Fresno Grizzlies Wednesday night.
El Paso trailed 7-4 in the eighth inning. It was the team’s fourth walk-off win of the season.
The Chihuahuas took two of three against Fresno and won 10 of 16 against the Grizzlies this season.
Aderlin Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs in the win. The homer was his sixth in his last seven games. Jason Vosler went 1-for-4 with a walk, moving his hitting streak to 12 games.
Most of the runs Wednesday came late, as the score was 3-2 entering the seventh inning.
The Chihuahuas win, combined with the first-place Las Vegas Aviators’ win, keeps El Paso in second place, one game back, with 12 games to play in the regular season.
