Tacoma rallies to halt 51s’ win streak at six games

The Las Vegas 51s’ winning streak ended today at six games.

Despite scoring three runs in the first inning against visiting Tacoma, Las Vegas came up short, 5-4, in the final game of a four-game series.

Infielder Daniel Muno had a three-hit day to lead the 51s, leadoff hitter Juan Puello went 2 for 5 with a run scored, and slugger Allan Dystrka recorded his 22nd RBI of the season.

Tacoma’s Jesus Montero had a three-run home run in the fifth inning to give the Rainiers the lead for good. It was the second six-game winning streak of the young season for Las Vegas (18-6).

On Little League Day, the announced attendance at Cashman Field was 6,003. Las Vegas returns to action at 7:05 p.m. Monday against the Reno Aces, the Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
