Las Vegas erupted for nine runs in the fifth inning to snap a two-game losing streak with a 15-9 Pacific Coast League victory Sunday at Reno.
The first seven hitters reached base for the 51s during the rally, which included four consecutive bases-loaded walks.
Dilson Herrera had three hits, including a two-run homer, in the third inning, drove in four runs and scored three times for Las Vegas (58-44). Johnny Monell had two hits and three RBIs for the 51s.
The offensive onslaught bailed out starter Matt Bowman after a tough outing. He allowed nine hits and six runs, five earned, in 3 1/3 innings. Dario Alvarez, making his 51s debut, recorded the final two outs of the fourth inning to pick up the victory.
Starter Allen Webster also struggled for the Aces (48-54), allowing nine runs on 10 hits while failing to record an out in the fifth inning.
The teams conclude the four-game series at 7:05 p.m. today.
