The Aces scored seven runs in the fourth inning right after a rain delay and went on to beat host Randolph 12-1 in seven innings.
Red Wing drew five walks and collected five hits in the fourth.
“We were a little more patient at the plate,” Aces pitcher and assistant manager Andy Gibart said. “Guys were taking pitches and when they were swinging, finding holes.”
Andy Schilling tied for the team lead with three RBI and went 2-for-4 with a run. Josh Thygesen drove in a pair and went 3-for-4 with a run. Jimmy Bohmbach finished with two hits, an RBI and a run.
Steve Boldt added a three-run home run in the fifth.
Gibart picked up the win by pitching the first six innings and allowing just an unearned run. He gave up six hits, struck out five and walked three.
“My arm feels very good,” Gibart said. “I felt like I was throwing hard and hitting my spots despite the three walks.”
The Aces improved to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the Classic Cannon Valley League. Their next game is Friday at home against Elko.
