SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (KOLO) - Drey Jameson’s impressive six innings of one-run ball held the Salt Lake Bees’ (32-38) batters in check for a 2-1 Reno Aces (38-32) win Friday night at Smith’s Ballpark.

Jameson was wheeling and dealing on the mound for the Aces and held the Bees’ starting lineup to just one earned run on three hits and struck out eight batters in six innings pitched. This was Jameson’s first Triple-A win in a starter’s role.

Cooper Hummel wasted no time and opened the game with a leadoff solo smash to left-center for a 1-0 lead.

The Aces added another run in the fourth when Cole Tucker lined an RBI single to center for a 2-0 advantage.

Salt Lake’s hitters were able to break the seal and plated a run in the sixth but were stifled by Reno’s lockdown relievers. The pair of Ryan Weiss and Justin Lewis tossed two shutout innings  and allowed just two hits to the Bees’ batters.

Keynan Middleton’s number was called in the ninth and the right-hander shut the door with a scoreless frame and added a pair of strikeouts for his first save as an Ace.

Yonny Hernandez (2-for-3) was the lone Ace to record a multi-hit game Friday night.

Reno’s starting pitchers have allowed a combined six earned runs in 23 innings pitched in the series against Salt Lake so far.
