(SUGAR LAND, Texas) – Cesar Salazar delivered a walk-off single to lead the Sugar Land Skeeters to a 3-2 win over the Las Vegas Aviators on Sunday night at Constellation Field.

Salazar, making his Triple A debut, drove a single to left field with one out in the bottom of the ninth to score Marty Costes and send the Skeeters to the victory. Salazar finished the night 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and the walk-off single.

Las Vegas stranded the bases loaded in the eighth and ninth innings. Ronel Blanco, who received the win, tossed a scoreless ninth and Bryan Abreu struck out three batters in the eighth to keep the game tied.

Ronnie Dawson knotted the game at 2-2 in the fifth with a two-run single. Las Vegas jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first on a two-run homer from Carlos Perez. Skeeters starter Jonathan Bermudez struck out five through five innings of work, allowing two runs on four hits. Skeeters pitchers logged 15 strikeouts on the night, one away from matching their season high. Along with Abreu, Seth Martinez and Parker Mushinski struck out three batters through an inning of relief.

Brady Feigl got the start for Las Vegas and went 4 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on two hits. Aaron Brown surrendered the walk-off single to Salazar and received the loss.
