51s Go Deep For Win
Las Vegas went to the longball and it served them well, winning 12-0 over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. The club banged out 10 extra base hits in the win and received sparkling pitching from a trio of hurlers.

Delwyn Young, rehabbing a muscle pull in his side, led the attack with a triple and two doubles Blake DeWitt had a triple and a double, Chin-lung Hu went 3-for-4 with a double, and both drove in two runs. A.J. Ellis had two doubles, and Angel Chavez went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBIs.

Las Vegas (68-66) has won four of its last five games, and out-hit the Sky Sox 16-4. The 51s' first six hits were doubles, and eight of their first nine hits went for extra bases.

Starter Jerome Williams (1-2) shut out Colorado Springs (66-66) on two hits and one walk in five innings. Relievers James McDonald and Justin Orenduff each allowed one hit and no walks in two innings.

The 51s did most of their damage in the second, third and fourth innings, scoring nine runs. They added single runs in the final three innings of the game.

Inland Empire Loses Ground In Playoff Drive
The 66ers dropped a 6-2 decision to Lake Elsinore in a game that had playoff implications. Inland Empire, Rancho Cucamonga and Lake Elsinore are all in a battle for the final two playoff spots.

In the final game of the three game series, the Storm pinned four runs on starter Albert Bastardo (5-7) and then held on for the win.

Drew Locke broke a scoreless tie in the last of the fourth when he singled, moved to second on a one-base hit by Matt Berezay and both runners were bunted into scoring position by Jaime Pedroza. Brian Mathews drove in a run on a ground ball to the shortstop.

In the top of the fifth inning, the Storm rang up five straight hits after the first two batters were retired and scored four times. Bastardo, who worked seven innings, held Lake Elsinore to a pair of hits and no runs in innings other than the fifth.

Esteban Lopez doubled and scored on Bridger Hunt's single in the seventh inning for the final 66er run.

Christian Lara, Hunt and Locke had a pair of hits each.

The victory by the Storm put them two games ahead of Inland Empire in the fight for the postseason. The 66ers host Rancho Cucamonga Quakes starting tonight for a three game series.

GCL Dodgers Bop Cardinals
The Gulf Coast League Dodgers dodged Hurricane Fay long enough to thump the Cardinals 11-2 and edge a half-game in front of the Nationals in the East Division. Even then the game was only eight innings long.

The Dodgers sent 11 men to the plate and scored six times, helped by a pair of Cardinal errors. Five walks and a pair of wild pitches plus an RBI single from Andrick Villalobos and two runs batted in by Joris Bert did the damage.

Jerry Sands smacked a solo home run (#10) in the fifth and Chris Jacobs added a three run shot (#3) in the sixth.

All the run support made things easy for Eduardo Perez, who worked five innings and allowed three hits and a pair of unearned runs. Beyker Frucuoso mopped up the last two innings.
