Allen goes deep, Eveland fans 10 as 51s’ winning streak reaches six


The 51s won their sixth straight game Saturday, defeating the El Paso Chihuahuas 6-4 in a Pacific Coast League game at El Paso, Texas.

Cesar Puello, Xorge Carrillo and Brandon Allen each finished with two hits for the Pacific South Division-leading 51s (31-11). Allen’s one-out solo home run, his third homer of the season, highlighted a three-run third inning that gave Las Vegas a 5-3 lead.

51s starter Dana Eveland (3-1) struck out 10 in six innings. He allowed four runs, two earned, on six hits with a walk.

Buddy Carlyle and Zack Thornton each pitched one inning of scoreless relief, and Vic Black recorded his sixth save with a perfect ninth. El Paso didn’t score in the final six innings.

Puello led off the game with a single, stole second, went to third on a ground-out and scored on an error by shortstop Tyler Greene.

Carrillo led off the second with a single and scored on a two-out infield single by Josh Satin.

Carrillo drove in Zach Lutz in the third with a double and scored on the play on a throwing error by catcher Adam Moore. Allen then homered.

Puello scored Las Vegas’ final run, in the eighth, after getting hit by a pitch, stealing second and coming home on Allan Dykstra’s single.
