The Chihuahuas' six-run sixth was their highest-scoring inning of the season. Jose Pirela went 3-for-4 with a walk and has reached base in six of his last seven plate appearances. Michael Gettys went 3-for-5, falling a double shy of a cycle. Esteban Quiroz had two hits and two walks atop the El Paso order.
