Recapish


            Making his first appearance with the Las Vegas 51s of the 2017 season, Rafael Montero tossed maybe his best PCL outing since 2014. Working with a limited pitch count, Montero struck out 7 over 5 scoreless innings while allowing just a pair of hits. The 51s jumped out to a 4-0 lead behind him, but the Las Vegas pen slowly let the lead drip away. Amed Rosario knocked the game into extras with a huge RBI triple in the 9th, but Sacramento took advantage of a Matt Reynolds fielding error in the 10th to walk off with a win – it was his second error of the game. Manager Pedro Lopez was tossed arguing a safe/out call in the 8th.
             These two teams continue this series Monday night at 10:05 PM, with Tyler Pill (0-0, 0.00 ERA) scheduled to make the start for Las Vegas. Pill hasn’t allowed an earned run over his first three starts of the year – the first two came with Binghamton.





MiLB.tv Scoring Highlights


            The 51s got the scoring started in the 2nd inning when Dom Smith led off with a single and eventually came around to score. Travis Taijeron got him to 3B with a ground-rule double, and Desmond Jennings got him home with a sac fly.



            Matt Reynolds and Amed Rosario hit a pair of two out singles in the 3rd inning but were stranded.



            Gavin Cecchini sparked the 51s three run 5th inning with a leadoff single. Smith came up three batters later with runners on the corners and brought them both home when his single to RF was misplayed for an e9. Smith ended up on 3B and was again brought home on a sac fly, this time by Travis Taijeron. Phillip Evans added a double for his second hit in the frame, but was stranded at 3B.



            Rosario’s second hit of the game led to what was, at the time, a key insurance run in the 7th. Smith brought him home when his hit into CF was again misplayed, though he would be thrown out at home on the play. Initially ruled an e8 all the way, Smith was later credited with a triple for his third hit of the game.



            While Rosario’s second hit was big, his final hit was big league. After Reynolds kept the game alive with a two out single in the 9th, Rosario tripled him home to tie ht game at 6!

Kevin McGowan


            Erik Goeddel left a mess (two on, one out) for McGowan and McGowan cleaned it up while facing the 3-4 hitters of the Sacramento lineup. He’d strike out both Ryder Jones and Michael Morse to escape the jam and keep the 51s lead intact.
