Las Vegas 14, Reno 8
Carlos Torres got the start tonight and wasn’t very sharp. Torres had traffic on the base paths all night long, allowing a total of 12 base runners. The 30-year-old gave up a hit and a walk to start the game, but was saved by a pickoff at first base. In the second, he loaded the bases to start the inning, but limited the damage and gave up just two runs. He pitched scoreless frames in innings three through five, but faltered in the sixth, and after giving up a solo home run, was removed from the game.
Justin Hampson relieved Torres and closed out the sixth inning without any further damage. Sean Henn started the seventh and loaded the bases with nobody out, eventually allowing four runs to score. Gonzalez Germen pitched a spotless eighth, and Greg Burke closed out the ninth, but gave up an RBI ground out after a lead off triple.
The Andrew Brown show continued on Wednesday night with three more hits. The 28-year-old outfielder cranked his second home run of the year, drove in three more runs, and raised his team leading batting average to .367. Juan Centeno, who was promoted when Travis d’Arnaud was injured, finally broke out. The backstop recorded four hits, including a double and a run scored. Josh Satin got back on track, reaching base three times with two hits and a walk, and Wilmer Flores added two RBI. Eric Campbell hit his second homer of the year, and drove in four RBI on the night.
Game Note: The Vegas offense once again tallied over 10 runs, which marked the eighth time they have done that already this season.
