COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Trailing 6-2 through five innings, the Reno Aces exploded for 10 runs in the sixth frame Tuesday night, cruising to a 13-7 victory over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox at Security Service Field.

The Sky Sox jumped out to a 3-0 lead and took a four-run advantage in the fifth. In the sixth, though, the Aces offense came alive, sending 13 men to the plate and collecting six hits—including a grand slam off the bat of Rusty Ryal, his second home run of the game.

Reno now has won 13 of its last 15 games and has gone 8-2 over the first 10 games of this 11-game road trip.

Barry Enright (5-3) earned the win, scattering six runs—five earned—on six hits over five innings of work. After Enright’s exit, three Aces relievers held the Sky Sox to just a run over the game’s final four frames.

Tuesday’s loss fell to Sky Sox reliever Tyler Johnson (0-1), who surrendered four runs in the sixth without recording an out.

At the dish for Reno, Ryal drove in six runs on the strength of a two-run homer in the fourth and a grand slam in the sixth. Jake Elmore was one-of-five Aces batters with a multi-hit effort, stretching his hitting streak to a career-best 21 games and pushing his on-base streak to 36 games—a new club record.

The rubber game and finale of this series comes to a close on Wednesday in a matchup two of baseball’s top prospects. RHP Trevor Bauer (3-0, 1.97 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while Colorado Springs counters with LHP Drew Pomeranz (2-3, 1.80 ERA). First pitch is set for 11:35 a.m. PT.
