Sacramento Gets past Chihuahuas Again
The El Paso Chihuahuas lost an early lead for the second straight night Friday and fell to the Sacramento River Cats 11-5. Sacramento's victory moved the River Cats' magic number to two in their attempt to clinch the Northern Division title.
Austin Allen went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs, his second straight game with a homer. Allen has at least one extra-base hit in his last 11 games. Jason Vosler went 1-for-3 before being removed in a double switch, advancing his hitting streak to 14 games.
Sacramento's Joey Rickard reached base six times Friday, going 4-for-4 with two walks. The Chihuahuas' loss, combined with the Las Vegas Aviators' win at Tacoma, puts El Paso in second place, three games back, with 10 regular season games remaining.
