las vegas 51s:

51s use four-run eighth to rally past Salt Lake

The Las Vegas 51s moved to within a half-game of first-place Sacramento today in the Pacific Southern Division standings, scoring four runs in the eighth inning at host Salt Lake for a 6-3 come-from-behind win.

Francisco Pena’s two-run double highlighted the eighth-inning outburst, and Brandon Hicks added an RBI double in the frame.

Robert Carson worked a scoreless ninth for Las Vegas to pick up his 11th save, combing with two other 51s pitchers in limiting Salt Lake to three hits.

Sacramento, which entered the day with a one-game lead, hosts Tucson later today. After today, Las Vegas will have 17 games remaining starting with a game Monday at Salt Lake; Sacramento has 15 games.
