10th Annual School Day draws more than 11,000 fans for 51s loss to Albuquerque

The Las Vegas 51s were defeated 8-5 Tuesday by the Albuquerque Isotopes in the final game of a four-game Pacific Coast League series and eight-game homestand at Cashman Field.

The early afternoon game was part of the 10th Annual School Day and drew 11,522 fans, 8,800 of whom were area fifth-graders.

Albuquerque scored four runs in the top of the first inning to take the lead for good to earn a split in the series.

Zach Lutz went 3-for-4 with a run scored to lead Las Vegas, which also received two hits — including a triple — from Eric Campbell.

Las Vegas (18-19) is off Wednesday and begins a four-game series Thursday at the Omaha Royals. They return home May 24 to face Salt Lake.
