The Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) and Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners) played a wild one on Monday. The game featured 33 runs on 39 hits and 16 walks with 10 homers. Four of those homers were hit by Yasmany Tomás. Matt Szczur hit for the cycle while Kevin Cron knocked in six runs and hit a pair of homers, giving him 21 on the season. Reno won 25-8, by the way.

That’s some baseball they’re using in Triple-A, isn’t it?
