Bees rally to beat Aces

Provided to the Tribune

SALT LAKE CITY – Doug Deeds hit his sixth homer of the season, but it was not enough as the Aces fell 6-5 to Salt Lake in the series opener at Spring Mobile Ballpark.

Reno took an early lead, as Yunesky Sanchez got the Aces on the board with a two-run double in the second. Deeds followed with an RBI-single to give the Aces a 3-0 lead, but the Bees chipped away, eventually taking the lead for good on a Cory Aldridge RBI-double in the seventh.

Wes Roemer tossed the first five innings but did not figure in the decision. Zach Kroenke (2-3) took the loss for Reno after giving up the eventual game-winning run.

Salt Lake starter Fernando Rodriguez also settled for a no decision after throwing the first five frames. Rafael Rodriguez (5-3) earned the victory for the Bees, keeping the Aces off the scoreboard over 2 1/3 innings of relief work, before Michael Kohn shut the door in the ninth for his fifth save.

Deeds finished the evening 2 for 3 with a home run, a walk and a sacrifice bunt. Sanchez added two RBI, while Pedro Ciriaco went 2 for 4 for his second-straight multihit game.
