The 51s let an early 3-0 lead slip away Tuesday night at Reno, with the Aces scoring the final seven runs – all off starter Jamie Moyer – in a 7-3 Pacific Coast League victory.
Las Vegas (47-38) got all three of its runs in the third inning. Adeiny Hechavarria had an RBI triple, then scored on David Cooper’s sacrifice fly, and Travis Snider followed with a two-out homer.
But that was it for the 51s. Reno (51-35) scored four runs in the fifth and three in the sixth. Cole Gillespie had a three-run homer to cap the fifth-inning spurt, and Jake Elmore had a two-run single in the sixth.
Moyer (1-1), the 49-year-old longtime major leaguer making his second start with Las Vegas, allowed 10 hits and two walks, with two strikeouts, in six innings. All seven runs off him were earned.
