Albuquerque 5, Las Vegas 2 I wonder if I lit a fire under Carlos Torres when I questioned his employment status with the 51s when I covered his last start in disappointment. Torres was actually quite impressive on Monday evening, lasting six innings and allowing just four baserunners over that span. He allowed a run to cross the plate in the first on a ground-out, but was otherwise in control for his time in the [...]

Round Rock 9, Las Vegas 5 I am not a mean-spirited guy when it comes to baseball, honestly, but why is Carlos Torres on our AAA team? He was lit up again on Wednesday night for a grand total of nine earned runs over 4+ innings and it was just a really rough performance. He allowed five of those runs in the top of the first alone, capped off by a three-run homer by [...]
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. [...]
Tacoma 10, Las Vegas 1 The Las Vegas 51s managed just four hits Friday against visiting Tacoma in a 10-1 loss at Cashman Field. The 51s allowed double-digit runs for the second straight game and dropped their third straight overall. Partially responsible for that huge run total was starter Carlos Torres, who was rocked for six earned runs over five innings. Dylan Owen struggled as well, allowing three earned runs over his two innings of [...]
Las Vegas 12, Tacoma 13 The night did not look promising for Zack Wheeler as the first two hitters led off the game with back-to-back doubles, and before you could blink, the 51s were down 1-0. Wheeler settled down after that and retired the next three batters in order, including two strikeouts. Wheeler cruised through the next three innings, as he did not allow a hit and surrendered just one walk. In the fifth inning, Wheeler’s [...]
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. [...]

Las Vegas 51s 6, Sacramento River Cats 1 The 51s improved to 3-0 this season with a win last night against the River Cats behind good pitching from Collin McHugh and a three-run sixth inning. Before Collin McHugh allowed his first and only run on the evening, the 51s had already given him four runs.
