First place 51s beat Reno again

The Las Vegas 51s continued their domination against the Reno Aces Wednesday, using a six-run fourth inning to fuel an 11-4 victory at Cashman Field.

The 51s have taken six of seven games to open the second half of the Triple-A season against the Aces in an eight-game home-and-home series. The wins have pushed Las Vegas (55-47) into first place of the Pacific Coast League’s Pacific Southern division — one game ahead of Tucson and Sacramento.

Jamie Hoffmann went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run for Las Vegas, while Mike Baxter went 2-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored and two RBIs. Matt den Dekker’s two-run double highlighted the fourth inning scoring outburst.

The series concludes at 7:05 p.m. Thursday at Cashman Field.
