Las Vegas 2, Fresno 1
The 51s won yet another game — this time behind Matt Fox, who turned in seven stellar innings of one-run ball to pick up his seventh win of the year. Robert Carson and Greg Burke combined for the final six outs while allowing just two hits — and walking none. In fact, Fox didn’t walk any batters either, which worked out well for them the entire game. He did, however, strike out nine.
It was a good night for Fox to be on his game, because the 51s offense was stymied and only managed to push across two runs. Both runs scored in the third, with Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Zach Lutz each plating a run for Las Vegas. They would only muster five hits as a team, with Lutz picking up two of them.
Rafael Montero takes the mound later today for Las Vegas.
