las vegas 51s:

51s fall at Tacoma, return to Cashman Field Friday

The Las Vegas 51s scored once in the ninth inning today at Tacoma, but stranded the would-be tying run at first base in a 5-4 defeat.

Brandon Allen drew a one-out walk in the ninth inning and moved to third base on Josh Satin’s single. Daniel Muno plated Allen with a sacrifice fly, but Juan Centeno was retired to end the game. Tacoma took four games in the five-game Pacific Coast League series, but the 51s (59-47) still lead PCL’s West Division by eight games.

Tacoma scored four runs in the sixth inning to take the lead for good, highlighted by Ty Kelly’s three-run home run.

Las Vegas was limited to five hits, including a fourth-inning home run from Allen for his 12th long ball of the season.

After nine road games following the Triple-A all-star break, Las Vegas returns to Cashman Field on Friday to open a series with Salt Lake. It’s the 51s’ first game at home since July 12.
