New Orleans Ends El Paso Streak
The El Paso Chihuahuas rallied for two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday but lost to the New Orleans Baby Cakes 7-6. The two teams have split the first two games of the series.
New Orleans starter Hector Noesi matched a season high by pitching seven innings and got the win. The Chihuahuas hit three home runs in the loss, including one by Ty France, his third consecutive game with a homer. Luis Urias and Michael Gettys hit the other longballs for El Paso.
The Baby Cakes' win was the first in El Paso for New Orleans since 2014. Thursday's game was delayed by 25 minutes in the bottom of the third because of lightning in the area.
