Chihuahuas complete sweep against the Bees

On a bright and early Sunday morning ball game, the Chihuahuas used strong pitching to their advantage as they completed a three-game home sweep against the Salt Lake Bees.

In front of 6,951 early rising fans, the Chihuahuas were able to obtain their second sweep of the year, and first since the middle of June against Tacoma.

Jabari Blash and Franchy Cordero led the way for the Chihuahuas, as they both contributed with a home run. However, it was El Paso’s starting pitcher Bryan Rodriguez who truly had a field day on the mound. He only allowed one run in seven innings and took the win for the day, improving his record to 2-7.

Now, the Chihuahuas will enter the Pacific Coast League all-star break in third place (44-46). They are currently five games behind Salt Lake (49-41), who is first in their division.

Next up, El Paso will take a three-day break for the all-star game and then travel to Nevada and take on the Reno Aces starting Thursday, July 13.
