51s Can’t Overcome Schwinden’s Five Earned Runs Allowed In 8-5 Loss
Albuquerque 8, Las Vegas 5
It was a tough night for Chris Schwinden, who was knocked around for four runs in the first inning, and this left the 51s in a defecit that they would never look back from. Schwinden would be on the hook for five earned runs in his five innings of action. Greg Peavey had no more luck than he did in his two innings of work, as he allowed two earned runs as well.
Vegas dropped a two-spot in the first inning – thanks to Eric Campbell, who drove in a run with an RBI Triple and then scored on a fielding error. Collin Cowgill drove home Brian Bixler in the bottom of the fifth to make it 5-3 at that point.
D.J. Mitchell is scheduled to start tomorrow for Las Vegas.
