Trailing 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, the Aces began their rally with a walk from Juan Centeno and Seth Beer being plunked by a pitch to put runners on first and second with no outs.

The Aces drew first blood in the second inning when Seth Beer scored on a groundout for a 1-0 lead.
After a leadoff triple from Jancarlos Cintron in the fifth, Dominic Fletcher plated the second baseman with a sacrifice fly to left and extended Reno’s lead to 2-0. In the next at-bat, Carson Kelly scored Reno’s third run of the game with a solo homer to deep right-center.
The power surge continued for the Aces in the sixth inning when Canzone sent a frozen rope into the Aces bullpen for a solo homer and the 4-1 lead over Tacoma.
