The Aviators were on the road tonight for the third of a four-game series on the road against The Memphis Redbirds. Las Vegas won the first two games of the series. Miguel Romero was on the mound tonight, looking to make it three in a row.
The Redbirds jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the 1st inning, after striking out three Aviators to take control of the game early on. That quickly changed in the 2nd inning. Now is a good time to tell you that The Aviators were walked 11 times in this game, four of which, came in the 2nd inning. With the bases loaded, the runs began to trickle in. Herrmann and Neuse would each score on a walk before a Mateo single would give Las Vegas a 3-2 lead. With the bases loaded for the second time in the inning, Franklin Baretto hit a grand slam, bringing in Mateo, Campbell, and Fowler. The Aviators strolled into the 3rd inning with a 7-2 lead.
