Chihuahuas unable to weather Storm Chasers in extra innings
EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) -- Dean Anna walked in the top of the 11th inning with the bases loaded to bring in the go-ahead run in Omaha’s 6-5 win over El Paso Sunday night. The Storm Chasers’ win dropped the Chihuahuas’ 2017 extra-inning record to 5-4. It was El Paso’s second extra-inning defeat in the last five games.
The Chihuahuas trailed 4-0 in the sixth inning when El Paso sent eight batters to the plate and scored five runs. The first five batters of the inning all scored before the first out was recorded. The sixth-inning rally included a three-run home run to center field by Franchy Cordero on the day he was optioned from San Diego.
