In Wednesday’s 51s game, All-Star Tacoma pitcher Forrest Snow pitched seven strong innings to guide the Rainiers to a 4-2 win over Las Vegas in Tacoma, Wash.

Justin Ruggiano and Jesus Montero each went 2-for-3 with an RBI single for Tacoma (40-40), which had a 10-7 edge in hits.

Reynolds drove in both Las Vegas runs, with a leadoff home run in the fourth inning and a groundout in the eighth.

T.J. Rivera went 3-for-4 with a triple and a double for the 51s. He led off the game with a double but was stranded, and he led off the eighth with a triple and came home on Reynolds’ groundout.
