Smith leads 51s to win over Tacoma

TACOMA, Wash. — Dominic Smith doubled twice and singled, driving in four runs as the Las Vegas 51s topped the Tacoma Rainiers 8-3 on Thursday.

Matthew den Dekker homered and singled with three runs and three RBIs for Las Vegas.

Las Vegas started the scoring in the first inning. After leading off the inning with a single, den Dekker advanced to second on a walk by Ty Kelly and then scored on a single by Smith.

Tacoma answered in the bottom of the frame when Jayson Werth hit a two-run home run to take a one-run lead.

The 51s later added two runs in the third and fourth innings and three in the sixth to secure the victory.

Las Vegas starter P.J. Conlon (2-3) picked up the win despite allowing three runs and six hits over 5 2/3 innings.
