Jamie Hoffmann’s run-scoring single in the top of the ninth inning Monday scored Josh Satin to give the Las Vegas 51s a 4-3 victory at the Fresno Grizzlies.
Satin, who finished with three hits and is batting .476 for the five-game season, opened the ninth with a double to left field. Two batters later, Hoffmann’s single to center scored Satin with the winning run to give Las Vegas (4-1) its fourth win in five road games to open the season.
Despite allowing two hits and putting the tying run in scoring position, Jeurys Familia pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save. Reliever Jake Dunning struck out two batters in two innings to collect the win.
Las Vegas trailed 3-2 entering the sixth inning, but evened the game on a two-out RBI single by Satin to score Travis d’Arnaud.
Las Vegas returns to action Tuesday at Fresno in the second game of the four-game series. Friday, the 51s have their home opener at Cashman Field against Colorado Springs.
