Corey Deighan limited the Trinidad Triggers to a single earned run and struck out five through seven solid innings Wednesday night, and the visiting Las Vegas Train Robbers picked up a 5-3 win.

It was the Train Robbers’ second win in as many nights at Central Park in Trinidad, Colo. They’d won three straight — their longest win streak to date — including a 9-4 win Monday night at the division-leading Santa Fe Fuego (14-5).

Las Vegas never trailed, although Trinidad tied it 1-1 after one complete inning.

Miguel Castaño went 3 for 3 to lead Las Vegas (7-14 in Pecos League play).

Clint Manzo gave up one run in the bottom of the ninth but allowed no more and picked up a save.

The previous evening, 10 different Train Robbers recorded at least one hit in a 7-5 verdict over the Triggers. Shane Casey hit his seventh home run of the season and chalked up three runs batted in.

Vegas fell behind 2-0 but stole the lead in the top of the third, scoring four runs.

The Robbers will return to Rodriguez Park for a five-night homestand beginning Saturday at 6 p.m. against White Sands.
