Sheldon Neuse hit a walk-off single with one out in the 10th inning, as the Las Vegas Aviators defeated the Albuquerque Isotopes 1-0 on Thursday in front of 10,452 people at Las Vegas Ballpark.
Seth Brown scored the game-winning run after he started the inning on second.
Both teams’ starters were stellar as Aviators’ Paul Blackburn and the Isotopes’ Chi Chi Gonzalez each pitched six innings of no-hit ball.
