A.J. Ellis brought a grand end to the 51s’ six-game losing streak Monday night.
Ellis went 3-for-4 with a 10th-inning grand slam to lift Las Vegas to an 8-4 Pacific Coast League win over the Fresno Grizzlies in Fresno, Calif.
Xavier Paul led off the 10th by getting hit by a pitch from Pat Misch (6-5). After a sacrifice, a walk and an error, Ellis hit his third homer of the year.
Dodgers center fielder Andruw Jones, on a rehabilitation stint with the 51s (65-65), hit solo homers in his first two at-bats. Las Vegas’ other two runs scored on two-out RBI singles by Chin-lung Hu and B.J. LaMura in the fourth inning.
The Grizzlies (61-69) were outhit 12-4, but their first three hits were home runs — John Bowker’s two-run shot in the third and solo blasts by Brett Harper in the fourth and Travis Denker in the eighth.
