Sean O’Sullivan cleared the bases with a double past a diving Matt den Dekker in center field and was immediately followed by a two-run home run from Jaff Decker. The home run was Decker’s seventh of the year.

Gregorio Petit’s two-out single in the fourth scored Decker from first base and extend Tucson’s lead to 6-2. The 51s cut the score to 6-4 in the fifth with back-to-back RBI singles from Francisco Pena and den Dekker. Brandon Hicks’ solo home run in the ninth brought Las Vegas within one of Tucson, but Miles Mikolas was able to get the final batter to pop up to second for the final out of the game.
