Three 51s homered Friday to lead Las Vegas to a 7-6 victory over the Salt Lake Bees in Salt Lake City.
Anthony Seratelli hit a three-run homer, and Josh Satin and Daniel Muno hit solo shots for the 51s (57-43). Satin went 3-for-4 and scored twice.
Muno’s homer was in the ninth inning, giving the 51s a 7-5 lead over Salt Lake (41-59). That homer became even more important when the Bees scored a run in the bottom half and put two runners on with two outs. But Las Vegas’ Ryan Reid then took the mound and induced a popout from Salt Lake’s Luis Jimenez to end the game.
Cory Mazzoni (1-0) gave up five hits and three runs in 5 2/3 innings for the 51s. Reid picked up his third save.
