The Fuego are living up to their name.

Santa Fe won its fifth game in its last six tries Wednesday, using a Jimmy Maxwell grand slam in the ninth inning to ensure an 8-5 win over North Division-leading Trinidad at Central Park in Pecos League baseball.

The win brings the Fuego (19-21) within five games of the Triggers (24-16).

Trinidad took a 5-4 lead heading into the final frame after Bryce Miller doubled in the go-ahead run in the eight, but didn’t hold up. The Fuego used two singles and a fielding error to load the bases for Maxwell, who promptly hit his 16th home run of the season.

Devonte Odums left off the All-Star roster?!?!??! What a crime. Entire Pecos league, he's in the top 17 (entrie league) in runs, hits, 2nd in doubles, 5th in home runs, 11th in RBI's, .383 average.
The selection committee or Andrew Dunn blew this one.
