Chihuahuas Walk-Off over Nashville to Complete Rally
The El Paso Chihuahuas trailed by four runs in the fifth inning Wednesday before coming back to beat the Nashville Sounds 7-6. Allen Craig's two-out, bases-loaded RBI single in the bottom of the ninth gave the Chihuahuas their third walk-off win of the season. El Paso has won four of its last five games to reach a .500 record for the first time since May 30.
Craig's walk-off hit extended his hitting streak to nine games. Javy Guerra went 2-for-4, his second multi-hit game in his last four contests. Brett Nicholas hit a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth and is now fifth in the Pacific Coast League in RBIs and fourth in the PCL in extra-base hits.
Five of the Chihuahuas' last eight games have been decided by one run.
Rehabbing Major Leaguers: San Diego Padres outfielders Wil Myers and Franchy Cordero will be added to the Chihuahuas roster Thursday on MLB injury rehab.
