Las Vegas 51’s mascot Cosmo takes the field, Friday April 12, 2013.

The Las Vegas 51s scored twice in the ninth inning today against visiting Fresno to force extra innings, winning in the 10th on Eric Campbell’s game-ending RBI single for a 9-8 victory.

It was the sixth Las Vegas victory in a row, giving the 51s (75-57) a two-game lead against Sacramento in the Pacific Southern Division standings with less than two weeks to play. The 51s’ magic number to win the division is 10 — each Las Vegas win or Sacramento loss lowers the number by one.

Brandon Hicks went 2 for 3 with four RBIs for Las Vegas, knocking a two-out, two-run double in the ninth inning to force extra innings.

The series continues at 7 p.m. Saturday at Cashman Field.
