RENO — Lucas May homered and drove in five runs for Reno Tuesday night, leading the Aces to their franchise-best eighth-straight victory, a 16-4 win over the Fresno Grizzlies at Aces Ballpark.

May was one of five Aces hitters to record at least two hits in the game, finishing 3-for-4 with two runs scored and five RBIs. Juan Miranda hit his first Triple-A home run of the 2011 season—a three-run blast in the seventh—on his way to a two-hit, four-RBI night.

The Aces scored 10 or more runs in a game for the 25th time this season, and remain on pace to break the modern-day Pacific Coast League record for runs scored in a season. Reno now has scored 701 runs this season, just 299 runs shy of the record with 49 games remaining.

Tom Layne (8-3) earned the victory for Reno in his first start since returning to Triple-A. Layne earned a quality start, tossing six innings and holding Fresno to three runs on eight hits, striking out three and walking just one.

Fresno starter Shane Loux (5-10) took the loss, allowing nine runs—eight earned—in four innings.

Cody Ransom and Andy Tracy chipped in with two hits apiece, scoring a combined five runs. Tony Abreu had three hits, scored four times and drove in two for Reno, which out-hit Fresno 15-12.

The first-place Aces look to make it nine in a row on Wednesday night at Aces Ballpark against Fresno. LHP Zach Kroenke (6-1, 6.38 ERA) toes the slab for the Aces, while the Grizzlies will counter with LHP Matt Yourkin (5-5, 4.70 ERA). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. PT.
