Aces take second straight from Tacoma

RENO – Ryan Roberts finished just a home run short of a cycle, leading Reno to a 6-3 win over Tacoma Saturday night in front of 6,954 fans at Aces Ballpark.

The Aces fell behind early for the second straight night, but rallied in the middle innings for another come-from-behind victory. Trialing 3-0 in the fourth, the Aces plated runs in four straight innings, starting with an RBI-groundout by Brandon Allen in the fourth after John Hester led off the inning with a triple. Jeff Bailey blasted a two-run homer into the train trench in the fifth to tie the game, before Yunesky Sanchez’s RBI triple in the sixth put the Aces ahead for good.

Matt Torra (6-6) earned the win for Reno, scattering 10 hits in 6 2/3 innings, but holding the Rainiers to just three runs. T.J. Beam tossed 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief before Carlos Rosa slammed the door in the ninth for his second save of the year.
