Triple A: El Paso Chihuahuas (58-62)

The El Paso Chihuahuas had an incredible offensive outburst from all of their stars in last night’s 11-7 win over the Salt Lake Bees.

This is good news for new Padres General Manager, A.J. Preller, who will surely be looking to try out some of his newly acquired toys at Petco Park before the season’s end. Everyone in the lineup got on base at least once. Those who couldn’t get a hit, showed patience at the plate and managed to get on base via free pass. The Chihuahuas managed to score in five different innings, proving that their hot night at the plate was no fluke.

Cody Decker hit his first (spoiler alert) of two lead-off home runs in the top of the second inning. His second came in the fourth, his twentieth of the season. Rymer Liriano continued to pressure the front office into giving him a look in the big leagues this fall, by having yet another multi-hit game. Liriano went 2-for-5 with a double.

New 2014 addition, Jake Goebbert made a mockery of the Angels’ MiLB affiliate by going 3-for-5 with a three run home run. Goebbert now has fourteen hits in the past ten games and is throwing his name in the hat to get called up. Rico Noel also had himself a fine night going 2-for-3, with two doubles, scored two runs, had an RBI, walked, and stole a base. Enough good things can’t be said about the kind of games these players had.
