Aces end nine-game slide

RENO – Back-to-back home runs in the second by Yunesky Sanchez and Carlos Corporan put the Aces ahead for good Friday night, as Reno snapped a nine-game losing streak and knocked off Tacoma 7-3 in front of 7,056 fans at Aces Ballpark.

Aces’ starter Kevin Mulvey allowed two runs in the first, but kept the Rainiers off the board until the eighth, as Reno rallied for five runs over the first three frames to take a lead it didn’t relinquish. Trailing 2-1 in the second frame, Sanchez and Corporan belted back-to-back homers to put the Aces on top 4-2. Reno added one in the third before tacking on two insurance runs in the seventh to cement the victory.

Mulvey (4-6) was masterful after the first inning, surrendering just two hits and one run thereafter. Mulvey struck out five and walked one over seven plus innings of work, before Zach Kroenke tossed the final two innings.

Ryan Feierabend (2-3) took the loss for the Rainiers, allowing five earned runs over six innings of work.

Sanchez and Corporan combined for three hits and three RBI, while Pedro Ciriaco and Chris Rahl chipped in two hits apiece from the top two slots in the order.

The Aces and Rainiers hit the third leg of this four-game set on Saturday night at Aces Ballpark.
