After a jolting start, the Chihuahuas have hit a brick wall

Chihuahuas facing Salt Lake City Bees on Friday April 27 at Southwest University Park.

The El Paso Chihuahuas have a quick turnaround after their 7-2 loss to Fresno in front of their home crowd on Sunday. They will board a plane to Tacoma and Fresno for a nine-game road series.

 

Most teams would dread a road series, but the Chihuahuas are starving for anything that can help improve their dismal slump. They fare better when they travel at 13-7, compared to their 8-15 home record.  

 

The Chihuahuas are coming off a series loss to the Fresno Grizzlies, losing three of the four games this past weekend at home.

 

They fell 9-7 on Thursday to Fresno, but quickly bounced back in a 8-7 win on Saturday. They dropped back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday, being outscored 11-2 through the two games.

 

Since starting the season at 15-5, El Paso is 6-18 overall. They dropped to third in the PCL Southern Division at 21-22 overall and 3.5 games behind Salt Lake at first. They’ve lost three of their last 10.

 

The Chihuahuas will take on Tacoma for a four-game series starting Monday evening. They previously fell to Tacoma three times in a four game series almost two weeks ago at home.
