51s edge Aces for fifth straight victory

Allan Dykstra went 2-for-3 and drove in three runs and Zach Lutz was 2-for-4, including a triple, as the 51s defeated the host Reno Aces 4-2 on Wednesday for their fifth straight win.

Las Vegas, which has the Pacific Coast League’s best record at 11-3, built a 3-0 lead after 2 1/2 innings.
