Six Bees Homers Doom Chihuahuas

August 17, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - El Paso Chihuahuas News Release

The Salt Lake Bees hit six home runs in their 12-5 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Friday night at Smith's Ballpark. The two teams have split the first two games of the series. The loss ended El Paso's six-game winning streak.

The Bees sent nine batters to the plate in the first inning against El Paso starter Dietrich Enns, who was pulled after two-thirds of an inning, his shortest outing of the year. Salt Lake's Michael Hermosillo hit three home runs in the first four innings before going hitless in his final two at-bats of the game.

Chihuahuas outfielder Michael Gettys went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, his 30th homer of the season, tying Hunter Renfroe's single-season team record that was set in 2016. San Diego Padres reliever Robert Stock allowed two runs in a one-inning MLB injury rehab outing. Tyler Higgins threw two scoreless innings and hasn't allowed a run or hit in his last five innings of work.
