The El Paso Chihuahuas were the only San Diego minor league affiliate to play today. The other teams enjoyed their usual Monday off.
Here is a quick recap of the action.
El Paso Chihuahuas (16-18 on the season) (Won 4-3 against Dodgers)
Luis Campusano: 2-for-5, 2B, 2 RBI, K
Tucupita Marcano: 3-for-5, 2 R
Nick Tanielu: 2-for-5, R, RBI
Brian O’Grady: 2-f0r-4, 2B
Daniel Camarena: 5 IP, 7 H, ER, BB, 4 K, (Win), 2-for-2, R
The decision to keep Luis Campusano down in the minors to get consistent at-bats has been paying off for El Paso.
Over his past four starts, Campusano has gone 6-for-18 with two extra-base hits and three RBIs. His third-inning RBI double capped off a three-run rally for El Paso. A single in the seventh inning pushed the Chihuahuas’ lead to three, which was instrumental in El Paso securing the win over Oklahoma City.
