Pitching ace helps 51s beat Reno, end three-game skid

Top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard gave up one unearned run in seven innings today for the Las Vegas 51s in a 6-1 victory against the Reno Aces at Cashman Field.

The 51s scored five times in the seventh inning, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Syndergaard, baseball’s 11th overall prospect by MLB.com, had his best outing of the young season, striking out seven batters and giving up one unearned run in seven innings to earn the win. He walked two and surrendered four hits.

Zach Lutz went 2 for 4 with a run and RBI to lead the 51s, and Juan Lagares also had two hits for Las Vegas. The 51s took advantage of 10 Reno walks.

The series, and Las Vegas’ season-long 12-game home stand, concludes at 7:05 p.m. Thursday.
