Hey, who wants to listen to some baseball? The Padres have the night off to celebrate Carlos Quentin's birthday, but the AAA Paw-dres are in action to sate our appetite. The Chihuahuas are back home in El Paso after closing out their last road series of the year with a win over Colorado Springs last night; they'll be taking on the Salt Lake Bees for the next five games, the last five of their season.
Robbie Erlin will get his second start for El Paso. The twenty-three-year-old lefty is working his way back from some springtime elbow unpleasantness and got knocked around in his only other appearance as a Chihuahua. He gave up seven earned runs on 14 hits in less than five innings. One good thing was that he didn't walk anyone.
Hopefully Erlin won't need that much run support, but Cody Decker will try to supply it for him. Antihero has homered in three straight games and now has a total of 25.
First pitch is at 6:05pm PDT. You can listen for free via 600 AM ESPN El Paso, whose call letters are KROD, just like that guy who serves up homers to Rene Rivera. Gameday is also available via the team's official site.
