The Reno Aces rallied for a 9-7 win over the Salt Lake Bees on Friday night to complete a sweep of the four game series. The Bees jumped in front in the first, as Shane Robinson and Kaleb Cowart opened the game with back-to-back singles before Dustin Ackley launched his first home run of the season over the bullpen in right field. Reno scrambled back to tie the game, but Salt Lake regained the lead in the fourth when Rey Navarro scored on a wild pitch. The Bees had a 5-3 lead in the fifth when the Aces scored five runs, as the first six batters reached base and took the lead for good on a three run homer by Carlos Rivero.
