LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas scored six runs in the first inning and never looked back, as the 51s rolled to a 10-2 win over the Salt Lake Bees on Monday afternoon in the final game of the 2011 season.
The Bees grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first on a run scoring double by Jeff Baisley, which gave him exactly 100 runs batted in this season. In the bottom of the first, Las Vegas loaded the bases with one out when Francisco Rodriguez (0-1) walked two straight batters to force in the tying and go ahead runs. Ricardo Nanita followed with a two run single to make 4-1. Former Salt Lake catcher Ryan Budde received the third bases full walk to make it 5-1 and Darin Mastroianni closed out the scoring with an RBI single.
Baisley led the Bees with three hits and one RBI, while Gil Velazquez drove in the other Salt Lake run with a solo home run in the third. Salt Lake ends the season at 62-82, the second fewest wins in franchise history.
