Las Vegas 51’s Anthony Seratelli makes it safely back to first during a pickoff attempt in the 51’s season opener against the Fresno Grizzlies Thursday, April 3, 2014.

Taylor Teagarden and Eric Campbell hit home runs today for the Las Vegas 51s, helping them erase a four-run deficit against visiting El Paso for a 5-4 victory at Cashman Field.

The 51s (14-5) trailed 4-0 entering the bottom of the fourth inning when Campbell doubled to lead off the inning. He scored on Anthony Seratelli’s RBI single. Teagarden followed with a two-run home run to trim the Las Vegas deficit to one run, 4-3.

In the next inning, Campbell’s two-run home run provided the winning runs.

Three Las Vegas relievers combined to surrender one hit in five scoreless innings to secure the win, including three innings from Miguel Socolovich (1-0) to earn the pitching decision. Vic Black struck out two batters in a perfect eighth inning and Jeff Walters grabbed his fifth save of the season with a flawless ninth.

The series continues at 12:05 p.m. Tuesday.
