Taylor Teagarden and Eric Campbell hit home runs today for the Las Vegas 51s, helping them erase a four-run deficit against visiting El Paso for a 5-4 victory at Cashman Field.
The 51s (14-5) trailed 4-0 entering the bottom of the fourth inning when Campbell doubled to lead off the inning. He scored on Anthony Seratelli’s RBI single. Teagarden followed with a two-run home run to trim the Las Vegas deficit to one run, 4-3.
