A six run second inning propelled the Reno Aces to a 9-3 victory over the Salt Lake Bees on Tuesday night at Aces Ballpark.
Josh Wilson’s two-run home run sparked the onslaught with one out in the inning. After Alfredo Marte struck out for the second out, Reno pushed across four more runs off Bees starter A.J. Schugel.
Schugel retired the side in order in the third before the Aces touched him up for three more runs in the fourth.
Tuffy Gosewisch went 3-for-4 at the plate for Reno, including two doubles, with two runs scored. Eight of Gosewisch’s last eleven hits have been doubles, in a span stretching back to June 22.
Brad Snyder went 3-for-5 in the game, and Matt Davidson, Mike Jacobs and Wilson recorded two hits apiece.
Aces starter Nate Adcock was solid through 5.1 innings, giving up three earned runs on four hits before exiting with an injury. He earned his second win of the season for Reno for his effort. Joe Paterson was stellar in relief of Adcock, giving up just two hits through 2.2 innings, while striking out two.
Newcomer Kevin Munson finished the game for Reno, allowing just one hit in his second Triple-A appearance.
