Chihuahuas beat Space Cowboys on walk-off HR from Tirso Ornelas

Tirso Ornelas hit a game-ending, two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday to give the El Paso Chihuahuas an 8-6 win over the Sugar Land Space Cowboys. It was the Chihuahuas’ second walk-off win of the season and their first walk-off home run since Daniel Johnson’s against Round Rock on September 8, 2023.

Ornelas also had a triple and a single in the win. El Paso’s Tim Locastro went 1-for-3 with a two-run infield single and two of the Chihuahuas’ five stolen bases. Locastro was also hit by a pitch for the ninth time this season, which leads all of professional baseball. Designated hitter Donovan Solano went 2-for-5 with an RBI double for the Chihuahuas.

Chihuahuas starter Jackson Wolf struck out 10 batters in five innings to set a new season high for single-game strikeouts by an El Paso pitcher. El Paso struck out 15 Space Cowboys to tie the team’s season high for single-game strikeouts.
