LAS VEGAS 51s
triple A; Pacific Coast League
The 51s are 49-54 and in third place in the PCL's South Division. The offense is led by first baseman James Loney, who leads the league in batting with a .380 average and was recalled by the major league club Saturday. Outfielder Matt Kemp has done well since being sent down, hitting .385 with a homer and nine RBIs in 39 at-bats. Highly touted prospect Joel Guzman is hitting .294 with 54 RBIs. Pitching has been problematic, with D.J. Houlton leading the team with six wins despite an unsightly 6.08 ERA.
