las vegas 51s:

Five-run first inning not enough for 51s against Salt Lake

The Las Vegas 51s were three outs away from a win today against visiting Salt Lake, but surrendered three runs in the ninth inning to squander a two-run lead in a 10-9 defeat.

Former UNLV player Efren Navarro went 3 for 5 with two RBIs and two runs scored for Salt Lake, knocking a run-scoring single and later scoring a run in Salt Lake’s ninth inning rally.

The teams combined for eight runs in the first inning, including a two-run home run from the 51s’ Brandon Allen and a bases clearing double from Kevin Plawecki for an early 5-3 Las Vegas lead.

The initial three batters in the Las Vegas batting order — Daniel Muno, Matt Reynolds and Wilmer Flores — each scored two runs.

The series concludes at 7:05 p.m. Thursday. Following the game, the organization will host its popular Fourth of July “Fireworks Extravaganza.”
