The Chihuahuas fell behind early in Las Vegas and couldn’t close the gap in a 7-4 loss on Monday night. The Aviators jumped ahead right away, scoring six runs in the first inning, including a grand slam by Las Vegas third baseman Vimael Machin.
The Chihuahuas made things interesting, scoring a pair of runs in the fourth inning on a Luis Campusano RBI single. Campusano later scored on a wild pitch.
In the Eighth inning, catcher Austin Nola took another positive step toward rejoining the San Diego Padres with a 2-run home run to right-center. Nola looked good at the plate Monday evening, reaching base three times with a pair of walks.
The Chihuahua’s bullpen finished strong after a poor start by Aaron Leasher, going six and one-third innings and only allowing one run while striking out seven.

It took a while for the Padres of the Dominican Summer League to get their offense going on Monday night, but they made up for it with multiple runs in each of the last three innings of their 7-2 victory over the Diamondbacks’ Team 1.
The offense was led by Zavala, who drove in three runs, including two run-scoring singles. Zavala also scored against a Diamondbacks’ team that allowed runs on a wild pitch and multiple errors, helping the Padres cushion their lead.
Pitching for the Padres was strong, with Mendez and De Los Santos combining to hold the Diamondbacks to two runs on only four hits.
