The Las Vegas 51s scored two runs in the first and third inning and never looked back as they began a four-game series against Sacramento with a 4-1 victory Saturday night at Cashman Field.

The two teams will be back on the field at 12:05 p.m. Sunday.

Two road teams stole the first game of their series in the NBA playoffs. The Utah Jazz defeated the Clippers by a bucket, and Milwaukee blew out Toronto by 14, while the Cavaliers and the Spurs held home court.

Las Vegas slugger Kris Bryant broke out of his long ball slump as he hit two home runs against the Pirates on Saturday, but the Cubs lost 8-7.
