Quintanilla Delivers 3-2 Walk-Off Win, D’Arnaud Pulled After Taking Pitch On Ankle
Las Vegas 3, Sacramento 2
Carlos Torres gave the team five solid innings and held the River Rats to two runs on the night while striking out ten batters. He allowed eight base runners on seven hits and a walk. Torres left the game down 2-0, but the bullpen shut the door after that allowing the 51s to come back and win the game. Adam Kolarek, Greg Peavey, and Robert Carson combined for four shutout innings.
Offensively, the 51s were quiet until the seventh inning when their bats finally came alive. Wilmer Flores led off the inning with a walk and Zach Lutz singled to put runners on the corners with nobody out. Omar Quintanilla doubled to right field to plate the first run, and Brian Bixler tied it moments later when he hit a sharp grounder to third, which caused an errant throw as he hustled down the line. Omar Quintanilla was the hero of the night, as he won the game with a walk off single in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Game Note: There is some concern over Travis d’Arnaud after he was pinch-hit for by Landon Powell in the sixth inning. D’Arnaud was pulled from the game after taking a pitch off his ankle while behind the plate. He finished the inning, but was replaced at the bottom of the sixth. We will continue to monitor this situation and update you as soon as we learn more. It could be nothing and just precautionary.
