AAA - Las Vegas 51's (13-15)_______________________________________
LAS VEGAS 7, SACRAMENTO 11 (Box)
Vegas dropped their third in a row at Raley Field last night, 11-7. After taking a 3-0 lead in the first courtesy of doubles from Wilmer Flores and Eric Campbell, the lead was subsequently surrendered right back in the bottom of the inning to the tune of seven runs, four of which were unearned due to a Campbell error. However, the 51s continued to claw back in the third as a Jamie Hoffmann single and another Campbell double sliced the deficit in half, and tied the game in the fourth on a Josh Satin double and a Flores single. Then the 51 bullpen was involved in the game and proceeded to allow a run apiece in the sixth and the seventh, before a Jemile Weeks triple broke the game open in a two-run eighth. Mike Ekstrom pitched two innings for his third save of the season for the RiverCats.
