Reversal of fortune: 51s come up 10 runs short in loss to Tucson

One night after a 10-0 victory, the 51s were on the wrong side of the same margin, losing to the Tucson Padres 11-1 on Sunday in Pacific Coast League play in Tucson, Ariz.

Las Vegas (35-29) got its lone run in the second inning, tying the game when Eric Thames scored on Danny Perales’ sacrifice fly. Tucson (29-35) responded with a run in the bottom of the second to regain the lead.

The Padres plated three runs in the fifth, including a Cameron Maybin RBI double, then blew it open with a five-run seventh inning. Andy Parrino added a grand slam to make the score 10-1.

The 51s had 11 hits but went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position.

Padres starter Matt Buschmann gave up 10 of those hits, and he had no walks to go with six strikeouts in six innings.
