The Las Vegas 51s banged out fifteen hits and rolled to an 11-3 win over the Salt Lake Bees on Friday night. Salt Lake's Andrew Romine launched the second pitch of the game over the right-center field fence to give the Bees a 1-0 lead, but the 51s roared back with four runs in the bottom of the first off of Bees' starter Eric Hurley. Las Vegas tied the game on a sacrifice fly by Ricardo Nanita and then took the lead on back-to-back RBI doubles by Moises Sierra and Danny Perales to make it 3-1. Yan Gomes wrapped up the scoring in the first with a run scoring single.
Hurley (2-3) took the loss as worked four and one-third innings and allowed nine runs, eight earned, on ten hits with three walks and four strikeouts. Luis Jimenez led the Bees with two hits, both of them doubles, while Romine added two hits and one run batted in. Kole Calhoun belted his second home run of the season and Doug Deeds chipped in with an RBI single, as Salt Lake suffers their eighth loss in their last nine games.
