Irving Falu tripled to open the home first and later scored on Johnny Giavotella's ground out to third. Singles by Andrew Brown, Wilmer Flores and Eric Campbell tied it in the second. The 51s then took a 3-1 lead in the third.

A sac fly by Max Ramirez plated Colon. After Xavier Nady popped out to shortstop Brandon Hicks, Anthony Seratelli singled in Giavotella.

Omaha made it 5-3 in the eighth as Seratelli doubled, stole third and came home on Chad Tracy's ground out to first. Las Vegas scored a run in the ninth on a Brown triple and a Flores ground out to short.
