The Reno Aces staved off a four-game sweep at the hands of the Salt Lake Bees and returned the favor from earlier this week by beating the Bees in an extra-inning affair, 3-2, on Thursday afternoon in front of an announced 5,068 at Smith's Ballpark. The Bees, who started the series with a win in 12 innings, saw their four-game winning streak snapped.
After giving up a run in each of the first two innings, the Bees (49-31) responded with two of their own in the third. Neither team scored again until the 10th. Reno (45-35) has been one of the hottest-hitting teams in the Pacific Coast League this season and entered Thursday leading the PCL in batting average, slugging percentage and runs scored. However, the Bees outscored the visitors 22-13 in the four games.
