Aces close series with big win

The Reno Aces had a franchise-record 25 hits in a 18-4 routing of the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Tuesday night.

Nick Ahmed led the way with five hits in a game where every position player had at least two hits.

Starting pitcher Bo Shultz let up one run in the top of the first inning, but the Aces quickly put up five of their own in the bottom half of the inning.

Reno went into the bottom of the sixth inning up 11-4 and posted another seven off an RBI from Bobby Wilson and two three-run homers from Ahmed and Danny Dorn.

Ahmed finished the day 5-for-6 with two doubles, one homerun, three RBIs and three runs scored.

Shultz went a total of seven innings allowing four runs on eight hits and five strikeouts. He also recorded a hit and two runs scored.

The win earned the Aces a series split and Reno now sits two games behind the first-place Sacramento River Cats in the league standings with a record of 43-36.

The Aces now travel to Albuquerque for a five game series with the Isotopes including a double-header on Friday.
