The San Diego Padres affiliates want 3-1 on Thursday.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 2-1 to Sugar Land) (15-12 on the season)
SP Thomas Eshelman: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K’s
DH Luke Voit: 0-for-3, K
RF Nomar Mazara: 1-for-2, 2B, RBI, K, BB
LF Taylor Kohlwey: 1-for-4, R, K
The Chihuahuas dropped a close game 2-1 in which the game was in a weather delay for over an hour. Heading into the delay, the Chihuahuas had a 1-0 lead thanks to an RBI double by Mazara, who extended his career-long hitting streak to 15 games. However, after the delay, El Paso could not hold the lead, giving up two runs in the seventh inning and failed to produce any offense after. El Paso starter Eshelman was fantastic, going five scoreless innings and striking out seven.

The Missions would break things open in the top half of the ninth thanks to a grand slam by Hollis that put the Missions up 11-5. The Hooks made things interesting in the ninth by scoring three runs to cut the lead to three, but the Missions were able to close out the win thanks to the offense in the latter part of the game. With three hits, Hollis has seven hits in his last two games versus Corpus Christi.
