TUCSON, Ariz.—Joe Martinez became the PCL’s third 10-game winner and Reno moved to a season-high 19 games over .500 Tuesday, as the Aces collected a pair of wins over the Tucson Padres at Kino Stadium.

In the resumption of Monday’s game, which was suspended by rain after three innings, the Padres tied the score at a run apiece in the fourth on Tuesday. But Reno rallied for two runs in the sixth to regain the lead for good in a 4-1 victory. Bryan Henry (1-0) scattered a run over three innings to earn his first-career Triple-A win, and Jonathan Albaladejo retired the side in order in the ninth for his 17th save. A.J. Pollock led the Aces offense with four hits.

In the regularly-scheduled 7-inning nightcap, Reno recovered from an early one-run deficit, scoring twice in the third to give Martinez (10-5) and the Aces bullpen all the cushion they would need in a 3-1 victory. The Aces right hander scattered a run on six hits over five frames. After his exit, Sam Demel worked a scoreless sixth, and Jensen Lewis registered the save in the seventh. At the dish for Reno, Josh Bell’s two-run double in the third vaulted the Aces into the lead. Mike Jacobs knocked in Reno’s insurance run in the seventh with a pinch-hit single.

The Aces and Padres hit the third leg of this four-game set on Wednesday night at Kino Stadium. LHP Tyler Skaggs (2-0, 2.65 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while RHP Matt Palmer (5-6, 6.72 ERA) counters for Tucson. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. PT, and the action can be heard live on Fox Sports 630 AM or by visiting RenoAces.com.

Reno will return home on Tuesday, July 24.
