51s drop game to Albuquerque, 5-2

The Las Vegas 51s surrendered four runs in the seventh inning Monday in a 5-2 loss to visiting Albuquerque at Cashman Field.

Zach Lutz hit a solo home run in the second inning for Las Vegas to highlight the 51s’ 10-hit attack. In the fifth inning, Collin Cowgill doubled and scored on an error for the other Las Vegas run.

Omar Quintanilla had three hits for Las Vegas, which fell to 18-18 on the season.

Alfredo Amezaga had a three-run double for Albuquerque in its seventh-inning outburst for the game-winning hit.

The final game of the four-game series is at 10:35 a.m. Tuesday, which is the franchise’s 10th Annual School Day Game. The game is for fifth-grade students and last year drew an attendance of 11,465.

“The school day game has turned into a great event for the fifth grade students,” 51s Executive Vice President Don Logan said in a statement. “The kids have a great time every year and the game serves as a fun and educational experience for the students with both the Tobacco Awareness Program and the opportunity to watch the 51s play baseball.”
