In a 7-6 Las Vegas win Tuesday night, Eric Campbell hit a one-out, two-run homer in the seventh inning to put the 51s ahead for good.
Highlights: The River Cats rallied from a three-run deficit but lost to host Las Vegas 7-6 Monday night when the 51s Matt den Dekker drove in the winning run with a two-out infield single in the ninth inning.
Highlights: Kent Matthes’ bases-loaded double gave the River Cats a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but they allowed host Salt Lake to score the last 13 runs in a 13-4 loss Friday night at Smith’s Ballpark.

Eric Berger knows Raley Field; he watched games at the Triple-A park while growing up in Roseville. He also knows how to pitch, once striking out an area-tying record 20 batters at Woodcreek High School, where he was The Bee’s Player of the Year in 2004.
The River Cats, who will play their 15th season at Raley Field, announced their 2014 schedule Tuesday.
