Trailing 8-2, the Chihuahuas scored five times in a nine-batter bottom of the sixth to get within one run. Brooks Conrad's three-run home run highlighted the rally, his team-leading 11th homer of the season. Conrad went 4-for-5 with a walk and fell a triple shy of a cycle. El Paso scored three times in the bottom of the eighth in another nine-batter inning. Tyler Greene's RBI single tied the game and Jace Peterson's bases-loaded single put El Paso ahead to stay.
