The Las Vegas 51s surrendered 10 runs in the third inning today against host Reno, dropping the first game of a Pacific Coast League series 14-8.
Mark Trumbo, on a Triple-A rehab assignment from Reno’s parent club, the Arizona Diamondbacks, hit a grand slam to highlight Reno’s third-inning outburst. It sent 13 batters to the plate in the inning.
Las Vegas starter Giancarlo Alvarado was roughed up for 12 hits and 12 runs in 2 2/3 innings, but five Las Vegas relievers combined to yield just two unearned runs the remainder of the game. In an attempt to preserve pitching for the remainder of the series, Las Vegas infielder Omar Quintanilla pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
Wilmer Flores and Matt den Dekker each had two RBIs to lead the Las Vegas offense, and Anthony Seratelli had a bases-clearing triple in a four-run ninth inning.
The series continues at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday.
