With the score tied, 3-3, Bocachica lined a one-out single off reliever Spike Lundberg (1-1) and the River Cats scored twice more in the inning to win.

Mitch Jones homered (#5) to lead off the ninth for the 51s, but the final three 51s were retired in order.

Las Vegas opened the scoring in the second inning when Ken Huckaby's two-out single brought home Delwyn Young. They made it 2-0 in the third when Tony Abreu led off with a double, then came around to score on a James Loney double.

Sacramento scored in the third and fourth to tie the game 2-2.

Andy LaRoche's RBI single put Las Vegas up 3-2 in the fifth but the River Cats tied the game in the sixth off starter Eric Stults, who allowed three runs in six, then won it in the eighth.

Tony Abreu singled and doubled, while Ken Huckaby and Andy LaRoche also collected two singles for Las Vegas who slipped to 10-6.

Fumbling Suns Lose 8-6-- West Tenn came up with a three-run eighth inning to erase a 6-5 Suns lead and dump Jacksonville (9-8) by an 8-6 margin Sunday. Five unearned runs made a big the difference in the loss.

The Suns had scored two in the top of the eighth on a Anthony Raglani triple and Alberto Concepcion's sacrifice fly. John Lindsay then drove a twp-run shot out of the park for his fifth homer and Jacksonville led 4-2.

Starter William Juarez pitched six innings, surrendering four runs, two earned, on five hits, fanning two and walking four. Matt Riley (0-1) allowed four runs, one earned, on three hits in two innings while striking out three and walking four to take the loss.

Sixers Score Early, Often- Inland Empire scored the first eight runs of the game and coasted in with an 11-6 decision over Lancaster, banging out 15 hits to make life easier for Starter Jesus Castillo, who won his first game of the season.

Third baseman Blake DeWitt led the Sixers attack with three hits, including a double, two runs and three RBI. second baseman Travis Denker, catcher Gabriel Gutierrez and shortstop Shane Justis collected homers for the winners.

After Inland Empire scored a run in the first on an error, a single by Ivan De Jesus and Lucas May's ground ball, they added four in the second.

Left fielder Ryan Rogowski singled and stole second to open the inning. A wild pitch moved him to third and he scored when Jamie Hoffman beat out an infield hit. Pinch-runner Shane Justis stole second and right fielder Drew Locke walked and both runners were bunted over.

Blake DeWitt's double scored two and after an error; May's RBI single added the fourth run.

Cody Wade, David Pfeffer and Brent Leach followed Castillo on the mound.

Loons Smack Kernals-- Great Lakes finally got the hang of that hitting thing, banging out 16 hits and swamping Cedar Rapids 10-1.

They scored seven runs in the fourth and fifth innings as all nine starters collected a hit and eight of them drove in runs.

First baseman David Sutherland banged out three hits while center fielder Trayvon Robinson, designated hitter Eduardo Perez, catcher Kenley Jansen, right fielder Bridger Hunt and shortstop Francisco Lizarraga each had a pair each.

This made life easier for starter Josh Wall, who might have asked that his teammates would save some of the runs for another game. He won his first game of the season and limited the Kernals to three singles and struck out eight over seven scoreless innings. Doug Brooks mopped up.
