SUGAR LAND, Tex. (Reno Aces) - Dominic Miroglio’s season-high, three-hit performance, which included his seventh home run, led the Reno Aces (46-40) to the 6-5 victory over the Sugar Land Space Cowboys (37-49) Wednesday afternoon at Constellation Field.

Camden Duzenack dropped a safety-squeeze bunt that delivered the eventual game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning and drove home Cooper Hummel on the play.  With the victory, the Aces have claimed their season’s second, five-game winning streak.

Miroglio’s massive offensive game included a two-run home run over the left-field wall in the top of the sixth and a game-tying single in the eighth inning lined into right field.

Seth Beer kickstarted Reno’s offense when he launched a two-run homer over the right-center field fence in the top of the second frame.

Reliever Blake Workman (2-0) earned the win for the Aces after the right-hander eliminated the two Sugar Land hitters he faced in the bottom of the seventh, allowing Reno to take the lead in the eighth inning.
