51s hang on to play another day in championship series

The Las Vegas 51s avoided elimination today in their Pacific Coast League championship series against visiting Salt Lake, beating the Bees 3-2 when closer Cory Wade recorded a strikeout with two runners on base for the final out.

In the first two games of the series at Salt Lake, Las Vegas dropped one-run decisions with the winning run for the Bees scoring in the ninth. Today, they extended their season to the fourth game of the series at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, by preventing a run to score in the final inning.

The 51s scored twice in the sixth inning to take the lead for good, including a solo home run from Dustin Lawley to start the inning. The eventual winning run came on Ruben Tejada’s run-scoring single to plate Brandon Hicks.

The attendance was 4,548.
