Las Vegas 51s 8

Salt Lake Bees 3

In short: The Las Vegas 51s took control early through good hitting and stolen bases, and were able to hold off a small Salt Lake comeback in the fifth inning to give the Bees their fifth-straight loss.

Bees manager Keith Johnson's take: "There are a number of areas we need to tighten up. Every opportunity we had to catch up or take control was squashed, and all our deficiencies showed up. We've just got to keep getting after it."

Record: 25-26
