Chihuahuas fall in game four against Sugar Land, 3-0

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- The El Paso Chihuahuas had seven scattered hits in their 3-0 shutout loss to the Sugar Land Space Cowboys Friday night at Southwest University Park. It was the third time El Paso was shut out this season. 

El Paso first baseman Kevin Plawecki set a new season high for hits in a game by going 3-for-3 with a double. Chihuahuas center fielder Oscar Mercado hit a triple in the seventh inning, El Paso’s 32nd triple this year.
