Lindsey Homer in the 10th Boosts 51s

Las Vegas lost 4-3 in the 10th on an error and Jacksonville won 5-2 on a John Lindsey three run homer in the 10th. Lancaster scored six in the second, three of them unearned off of rehabbing Yhency Brazoban, and beat Inland Empire 8-3. Great Lakes was held to four scattered hits and lost 5-0 to Cedar Rapids.

Error in 10th Costs 51s-- A two-out error by shortstop Tony Abreu in the 10th inning cost Las Vegas a 4-3 decision at Sacramento Monday night. Luis Gonzalez surrendered only the fourth Las Vegas hit of the game before a stolen base and the error resulted in a 4-3 loss.

Sergio Garcia slugged a three-run homer in the third, scoring Tomas Perez and Abreu, to erase a 2-0 Sacramento lead. The 51s could not get back into the scoring column again.

Las Vegas, now 10-7, used six pitchers in the game with starter D.J. Houlton allowing three hits and a pair of runs over the first six innings and leaving with a 3-2 lead.

Greg Miller was unable to get out of the seventh inning when a streak of wildness (four walks) allowed the River Cats the tying run before Mark Alexander was called in to restore order.

Eric Hull took the 2-2 through the ninth but Harold Eckert, who been brought in to start the 10th, came up with a leg injury after only one pitch and had to leave in favor of Gonzalez (0-2).

The 51s allowed four hits and were held to five, two by Tomas Perez.

The teams wrap up their four-game series today with a morning game that starts at 11:35.

Lindsey's Homer a Winner-- John Lindsey, signed as a free agent in the off-season, proved a good investment again when he slugged a three-run homer in the top of the 10th inning break a 2-2 tie and boost Jacksonville to a 5-2 win.

Shortstop Chin Lung Hu reached on a bunt single and moved to second on right fielder Wilkin Ruan's groundout. Center fielder Xavier Paul was walked intentionally before the 30-year-old Lindsey connected for his sixth homer of the year, giving the Suns their fourth win in the last five games.

The Suns (10-8) took a 2-0 lead in the fifth on Marshall McDougall's third homer -- increasing his hitting streak to eight games -- but Suns starter Eric Cyr, who went six innings, surrendering a two-run homer in the fifth.

Reliever B.J. LaMura kept the game tied with two scoreless innings, and Jonathan Meloan (3-1) picked up the win by striking out four in two scoreless frames while benefitting from Lindsey's shot in the 10th.

Hu went 0-for-5, ending his five-game hitting streak.

Although they only walked one Monday night, Jacksonville's pitching staff was tied with the most walks in all of professional baseball with only Washington in the National League and the Dodgers' Class-A Inland Empire 66ers.

The Suns (7-11) meet West Tenn again tonight in the fourth game of the five-game series with Alvis Ojeda on the mound for the Suns.

Loons Blanked-- Great Lakes, fresh off a pair of wins, ran into tough pitching and lost a 5-0 decision.

The Loons were limited to four hits by Tim Schoeninger, who pitched a complete game and allowed singles by Preston Mattingly (1st), Scott Van Slyke (6th), Bell (7th) and a double by Justin Fuller in the ninth. Nine Loons were struck out.

The Kernals got the only run they needed in the second inning on a bases-loaded walk by losing pitcher Mike Gardner, who lost his first game against a pair of wins.
