El Paso battled back to tie the game in the ninth but lost on a bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning. It was a bullpen day for the Chihuahuas as 10 different pitchers toed the rubber on Sunday in Reno. Of the 10 pitchers, only three failed to surrender a run. Jesse Scholtens was charged with the loss as he walked three batters and only recorded one out in his appearance for the Chihuahuas.
Brent Rooker and Luis Liberato homered in the loss, and Jose Azocar went 2-for-4 out of the leadoff spot. Wil Myers started the game at first base and went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored. Myers is very close to returning and could be activated this week.

Nick Thwaits and Ramon Perez finished off the shutout for the TinCaps as each pitcher threw a scoreless inning in relief for Fort Wayne.
How about Noel Vela?

Offensively, Corey Rosier slugged a two-run homer in the ninth inning to finish off Dayton late in the game. Infielder Lucas Dunn doubled three times in the win. Matthew Acosta chipped in with two hits in the bottom of the order in a game that Fort Wayne handled easily. Robert Hassell went 0-for-5 with a walk on Sunday.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 3-1) (52-38 overall record)
Bodi Rascon- 6 IP, 3 H, 6 K (77 runs- 55 strikes)
Marcos Castanon- (1-for-2) 2B, 2 BB, Run
Nerwilian Cedeno- (2-for-4) 2B, K
Albert Fabian- (2-for-4) RBI, K
The Storm lost a pitcher’s duel to Inland Empire on Sunday. Three late runs by the 66ers proved to be enough as Lake Elsinore only managed one run in the ninth, leaving the tieing runs on base. Bodi Rascon started the game and was effective, striking out six in six innings of work. Rascon left with the game scoreless, but Ben Miller and Hazahel Quijada coughed up runs and the game for the Storm.
Albert Fabian and Nerwilian Cedeno each recorded two hits in the loss, and Marcos Castanon doubled and walked once for Lake Elsinore. James Wood went 0-for-3 on Sunday, with a walk and two strikeouts. Wood still owns a 1.006 OPS for Lake Elsinore this season in the Cal League.
