Chihuahuas rally in the ninth inning to top Albuquerque 6-5

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- The El Paso Chihuahuas beat the Albuquerque Isotopes 6-5 Saturday night on a game-ending single by Tirso Ornelas with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. It was Ornelas’ second walk-off hit this season, after his game-ending home run against Sugar Land on April 30.

Ornelas went 4-for-5 with a two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game 5-5. The four hits set a new season high for Ornelas. The Chihuahuas trailed 5-0 in the fifth inning before scoring six unanswered runs. San Diego Padres infielder Xander Bogaerts went 0-for-3 with two walks in his third MLB Injury Rehab game with the Chihuahuas.

Chihuahuas reliever Sean Reynolds matched his career high with six strikeouts in 3.2 innings, which was the longest outing by an El Paso reliever this season. Saturday was El Paso’s fourth walk-off win this year.
