COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Wily Mo Peña had five of the Aces’ franchise-high-tying 23 hits Saturday night, and Barry Enright surrendered just two hits and one run in six innings, leading Reno to a 14-4 win over Colorado Springs at Security Service Field.



Peña finished five-for-six with two doubles and three RBIs, as the Aces exploded for their most hits since June 5, 2009. Mark Hallberg and Enright—batting eighth and ninth in the order, respectively—combined to finish with five hits, four RBIs and two sacrifice bunts on the evening. Nine different Aces batters had multi-hit efforts Saturday, putting Reno in position for a series split Sunday.



Enright (4-2) was impressive on the mound as well as the plate, tossing six frames of one-run ball. Enright struck out four and walked just one, tossing his fourth quality start in his last five outings. Yhency Brazoban tossed two scoreless innings of relief before Rafael Rodriguez finished the proceedings in the ninth.



Sky Sox starter Greg Reynolds (3-2) suffered the defeat, allowing six earned runs and 10 hits in 4.1 innings. Former Aces pitcher Billy Buckner was a bright spot out of the Colorado Springs bullpen, working 1.2 innings of scoreless relief against his former squad.



Cody Ransom hit his 16th home run of the season, going two-for-five and adding three RBIs. Kyle Greene went two-for-two with a walk off the bench, and has now reached base in eight of his last 12 plate appearances. Evan Frey and Konrad Schmidt chipped in with two hits apiece, while Collin Cowgill singled, doubled and scored three times a day after seeing his franchise-record 17-game hitting streak snapped.



The Aces and Sky Sox close the series Sunday afternoon at Security Service Field. LHP Tom Layne (6-1, 5.20 ERA) takes the ball for the Aces against Colorado Springs RHP Alan Johnson (1-3, 6.27 ERA). First pitch is set for 12:05 p.m. PT, and all the action can be heard in Northern Nevada on Fox Sports Radio 630 AM or online at RenoAces.com.



The Aces return home on Monday to kick off a four-game series with the Tucson Padres at Aces Ballpark. Tickets can be purchased at the Aces Ballpark Box Office, online at www.RenoAces.com or by phone at (775) 334-7000. Discounted group tickets for your next event are available today.
