Las Vegas 51s Start Four Game Homestand vs. Sacramento River Cats

Las Vegas 51s Start Four Game Homestand on Saturday vs. the Sacramento River Cats

Your home team, the Las Vegas 51’s, is set to begin a 4-game homestand against the Sacramento River Cats. With two games remaining on their schedule against their intrastate rivals, Reno Aces, it won’t be long until your boys return to Cashman Field for a brief stop home.

Their two games in Reno will take place on Thursday and Friday. Without a break, their series against the River Cats will begin on Saturday, June 25th at 7:05 PM. Their series opener will also celebrate Susan G. Komen Jersey Night on PINK Night! The first 2,500 fans to show up to the gates will get a Komen jersey. Game 2 will be held at 12:05 PM on Sunday, which will be followed by Smith’s Value Menu Monday on Monday, June 27th. All food will be served at a discounted price.

The 51’s will finish their home-series on Tuesday before getting a one-day rest on Wednesday. Their last day off was on June 8th, when they came off a 3-1 series win over Tacoma at home.

51’s vs. River Cats

The Las Vegas 51’s — the AAA-affiliate team for the 2015 NL Champion New York Mets — are facing off against a struggling River Cats’ team, who are the AAA-affiliate team for the San Francisco Giants. In their last 10 games, the River Cats are 4-6 and also have a 30-44 record as it stands right now — good for last place in the Pacific Coast League Pacific Northern. In comparison, the 51’s have won 7 of their last 10, while boasting a 39-33 record that’s good enough for 2nd place in the Pacific Coast League Pacific Southern.

In their series against the Reno Aces — AAA-affiliate team for the Arizona Diamondbacks — the 51’s have won the first two games, with scores of 6-3 and 12-10 respectively. With two games remaining, they have a chance to sweep the series and become that much closer to first place in the Pacific Southern division. Currently, the El Paso Chihuahuas hold that spot and are 3.0 games ahead of the 51’s with a 42-30 record.

So far, the 51’s are having a good season and look to continue their success throughout the year. 4th-year manager, Wally Backman, has done a good job of leading this crew and making them the “longest enduring franchise in the history of professional sports in the state of Nevada,” according to Jim Gemma.

Tune in to see your 51’s face off this weekend!
