Sounds’ five home runs dominates Chihuahuas

Gabriela Velasquez
Th El Paso Chihuahuas played against the Nashville Sounds at the Southwest University Park of July 14th, 2016.

After coming back from the all-star break, the Chihuahuas fell big to the Nashville Sounds, 13-3, on Thursday, July 14. The Sounds bashed five home runs in their victory, and ended up to be the most home runs Nashville hit in a game this season. Even though their pitching had been progressively getting better, this  was the most home runs the Chihuahuas pitching staff allowed in a game.

Bruce Maxwell and Arismendy Alcantara of the Sounds had four hits respectively throughout the game, and Nashville racked up 19 hits, which tied their season high.

For the Chihuahuas (53-38), Carlos Asuaje, Diego Goris and Nick Noonan posted two hits in the loss. Noonan had a double in the seventh inning, which extended the Chihuahuas’ streak extra-base hit streak to 88 consecutive games. However, the club could not get points on the board, and the loss resulted in the first time in 2016 that the Chihuahuas were defeated by 10-or-more points.

The Chihuahuas will continue their four-game series against the Sounds on Friday, July 15, at Southwest University Park. Pitching for the Chihuahuas will be Carlos Pimentel (9-4, 5.94 ERA), who has been a threat recently. He will be taking on Nashville pitcher Jesse Hahn (1-5, 3.60).
