The slide continued for the 51s on Sunday.
Despite taking a two-run lead in the fourth inning, Las Vegas gave up four runs in the seventh to suffer its third straight setback, a 4-2 defeat to the Salt Lake Bees at Cashman Field.
Since defeating Fresno 12-3 on April 24, the 51s have lost seven of eight.
Angel Sanchez doubled to center in the bottom of the fourth to bring home Kyle Phillips and Scott Campbell.
But the lead wouldn't hold.
After being no-hit through six innings, the Bees finally caught up to 51s starter David Purcey in the seventh — collecting all four of their hits to rally for their PCL Pacific North-leading 16th win.
The 51s travel to Fresno Monday for a four-game series.
