Overton Leads Mound Effort in 6-0 Victory
The El Paso Chihuahuas beat the Sacramento River Cats 6-0 Sunday, El Paso's third shutout win of the year. The Chihuahuas and River Cats split the four-game series. Sacramento didn't have any extra-base hits Sunday.
Dillon Overton pitched six shutout innings to get the win for the third time in his last four appearances. Matthew Batten had two hits and a walk in his first three plate appearances and reached base on eight consecutive plate appearances dating back to Saturday before an eighth inning groundout Sunday.
Jason Vosler went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, his 20th homer of the season. Vosler has a 16-game hitting streak, tying Jose Pirela for El Paso's longest streak of the year. This is the third consecutive season Vosler has hit 20 or more home runs.
First-place Las Vegas also won Sunday, placing El Paso three games back with eight to play, while Sacramento's magic number remains one to clinch the Northern Division.
