Shane Peterson's solo home run broke an eighth-inning tie and gave the El Paso Chihuahuas a 4-3 win over the Salt Lake Bees Wednesday afternoon at Southwest University Park.

 

The Chihuahuas trailed 2-1 in the bottom of the sixth when Javy Guerra lined a two-run homer over the center field wall. Guerra had nine home runs last season and already has a team-leading three this year. Luis Urias went 3-for-5, falling a triple shy of a cycle. Urias has reached base in all six of his games played this year.

 

The Chihuahuas have now come back in the sixth inning or later to win in both of their day games this season.
