June 19, 2021 - Triple-A West League (AAA West) - Reno Aces News Release

RENO, Nev. - The Reno Aces kept the hot hitting streak alive, hitting five homers en route to a 7-6 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes. The performance was led by Josh VanMeter's two solo shots, with four innings of shutout ball by the bullpen.

For the eighth-straight game, Reno jumped out to the early lead. Andrew Young and VanMeter went back-to-back with a pair of solo homers, putting the Aces up 2-0.

The Aces kept the runs coming, scoring in the bottom of the third after Nick Heath walked and stole second. Young doubled to score Heath, and make it a 3-0 game.

Albuquerque answered in the top of the fourth with a grand slam to take the lead 4-3.

Reno came right back to re-take the lead with another set of back-to-back solo homers. This time it was Bryan Holaday and Camden Duzenack, making it 5-4 Aces after four innings of play.

In the top of the fifth, the Isotopes put up two more to take a 6-5 lead that would again prove to be short lived.

In the bottom of the fifth, VanMeter smoked his second homer of the night to tie it up at six, before a Bryan Holaday sacrifice fly made it another Reno lead at 7-6.

Miguel Aguilar entered to close out the night, earning his second save of the season with a scoreless ninth.
