El Paso came back, down from a rut, and scored three times in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings. But Nashville’s Jorge Mateo launched a two-run homer at the top of the 10th inning to lift the Sounds to a 8-6 win over the Chihuahuas Friday night.
With the win, Nashville took a 2-1 series win over El Paso, and the Chihuahuas now have a 1-2 extra inning record.
Allen Craig hit 3-for-5 and hit a solo homer in the eighth inning, which was his ninth homer of the year. Padres outfielder Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with an infield single in part of his MLB injury rehab assignment, while his San Diego teammate Franchy Cordero went 0-for-3 with two walks in his MLB injury rehab game.
The Sounds had a resounding six doubles Friday night. Next up, the Chihuahuas will take on Memphis for a four-game series starting Saturday at Southwest University Park. First pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m.
