Catcher Robinzon Diaz, 2-for-4, doubled to lead off the frame and was followed by a walk to Stephen Parker. Shortstop Josh Prince hit a bases-clearing triple to the right-field wall and then scored on Johnny Hellweg’s double to the same spot.

Sean Halton, 1-for-5, added to the Sounds lead in the fifth inning with a groundout that scored Caleb Gindl, 2-for-5, from third for the 4-0 lead. Gindl reached the hot corner on a hustle triple on a ball hit to right-center field.

With two outs in the inning, Diaz and Parker drew walks before Prince and Hellweg connected again for back-to-back RBI-singles to make it 6-0. First baseman Blake Lalli added a run in the sixth inning with his shallow single into left field.

Kentrail Davis led the offense with three hits, two doubles, while Josh Prince racked up three RBIs.

The Aces worked three runs off Hellweg (11-5) in the sixth inning, after the Sounds hurler had served up five scoreless. Mike Jacobs touched Hellweg for a lead-off home run to extend his hit streak to 11 games.

A Prince fielding error allowed Juan Rivera to reach base in the frame before Josh Wilson lifted Reno’s second home run of the inning to pull the Aces to within four runs. Reno never scored again.

Hellweg picked up his 11th win of the season, scattering five hits across six innings of work. The 6-foot-9 pitcher allowed three runs, two earned, walked four and struck out three before making way for reliever Brent Leach.

Leach and Kyle Heckathorn combined for three perfect frames for Nashville with two strikeouts.

Reno starter Tyler Skaggs (6-8) took the loss, allowing Nashville six runs on 10 hits and three walks over 4 2/3 innings of work.

The Sounds return to Greer Stadium Friday to begin a five-game homestand with the Round Rock Express (Rangers affiliate). Throwing for Nashville will be RHP Jimmy Nelson (3-4, 3.54) opposite Express’ RHP Jake Brigham (4-3, 4.28).

The first 500 fans to Greer Stadium will receive a commemorative Elvis TV Guide, courtesy of Sun Entertainment, for Elvis Night and postgame fireworks.
