Kirk Nieuwenhuis had three hits including a leadoff 3B to lead the Vegas 51s to victory 3-1 over Colorado Springs, behind 7 three hit, one run innings from Joel Carreno.


After rain delayed the start of the game by about an hour, Las Vegas got busy immediately, as Kirk Nieuwenhuis led off the game with a triple to right field and scored on Daniel Muno’s single. Josh Satin singled with two outs, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on Brandon Allen’s single to right. 51s starter Joel Carreno gave back one of the runs, as Angelys Nina doubled in the bottom of the first and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

It would be the only run Carreno (2-5) would allow.
