EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Willie Calhoun scored on a groundout in the first inning, leading the Oklahoma City Dodgers to a 4-3 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas on Monday.
Brandon Morrow got Jabari Blash to hit into a double play with a runner on first to end the game for his sixth save of the season.
The run by Calhoun, part of a four-run inning, gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead before Max Muncy hit a three-run home run later in the inning.
After El Paso scored a run in the sixth on a home run by Jose Pirela, the Chihuahuas cut into the deficit in the seventh inning when Blash hit a two-run home run.
Oklahoma City starter Fabio Castillo (3-2) picked up the win after allowing four hits over five scoreless innings. Opposing starter Tyrell Jenkins (3-4) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game after allowing four runs and seven hits over five innings.
Oklahoma City took advantage of some erratic El Paso pitching, drawing a season-high nine walks in its victory.
