Despite Davis’ pair of home runs, 51s fall to Tucson

Ike Davis homered twice for Las Vegas, but it wasn't enough as the Tucson Padres used a three-run fourth inning to pull away with a 5-3 victory Friday over the 51s.

Davis belted home runs in the sixth and ninth innings — both solo shots.

While Davis was spectacular for Las Vegas (38-35), the home team Padres (39-36) used a more balanced effort. No Padre player tallied more than a single RBI, and all but one came off singles.

Jonathan Galvez hit a solo home run to tie the game at 1.

All of the Padres' runs in the game-turning fourth came on singles. Rene Rivera brought home Cody Deker first with an RBI single to right. Then Robbie Erlin followed up with an infield single to bring home Gregorio Petit.

Dan Robertson capped off the scoring with a single to left field to bring Rivera home.

The Padres added a run in the fifth inning — a Petit RBI single — before Davis mashed in his two homers to cap off all scoring.

Galvez finished 2-for-3 to lead Tucson.

Robbie Erlin picked up his sixth win of the season for Tucson, going six innings. He allowed two runs on three hits with seven strikeouts.

Chris Schwiden took the loss for the 51s. He went five innings, surrendering five runs on nine hits. He walked one batter to go along with four strikeouts.

Las Vegas returns to the field Saturday, starting a four-game home stand against the Salt Lake Bees.
