Behind four home runs, the Chihuahuas beat the Aces Thursday night by a score of 7-4. It is the final contest of 2019 between the two clubs with El Paso owning the 12-4 advantage. The team from Texas took an early 2-0 lead after one thanks to two solo home runs from Ty France and Jose Pirela. The Aces were able to tie the score by the third courtesy of RBIs from Matt Szczur and Yasmany Tomas. However, the Chihuahuas scored five runs to make it 7-2 by the seventh on two, two-run home runs from Aderlin Rodriguez and Luis Urias and an RBI from El Paso's pitcher, Dillon Overton. Reno's Andy Young made it 7-4 with a two-run homer of his own in the eighth but it wasn't enough for a comeback. Overton earned the win throwing five innings and allowing two runs for the Chihuahuas.
