El Paso Chihuahuas split the series with the Las Vegas Aviators

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- After winning the first three games of the series, the El Paso Chihuahuas wouldn't find the win column again and end up splitting the series with the Las Vegas Aviators.

The two teams put up a whopping 114 runs in the six-game series.

On Sunday, in the lowest scoring game of the season, the Chihuahuas entered the bottom of the ninth leading 6-5. Cody Thomas hit a walk-off single for Las Vegas to beat the Chihuahuas 7-6.

El Paso shortstop Matthew Batten went 2-for-4 with a double and advanced his hitting streak to 12 games, which is the longest by a Chihuahuas player this season.

Chihuahuas third baseman Jantzen Witte went 0-for-4 to end his hitting streak at 10 games. El Paso catcher Kevin Plawecki went 3-for-4 with a double and his second home run of the series.

San Diego Padres reliever Nabil Crismatt pitched a scoreless seventh inning for El Paso on MLB Injury Rehab Sunday.

Las Vegas manager Fran Riordan was ejected for arguing a call in the top of the seventh inning.

Sunday was the first walk-off loss for the Chihuahuas since May 20 at Round Rock.

El Paso will be back at Southwest University Park starting on Tuesday when they host the OKC Dodgers.
