The Albuquerque Isotopes pounded out 21 hits en route to a 16-7 blowout victory over the host Reno Aces on Friday night. Tim Federowicz, Brock Peterson and Erisbel Arruebarrena all homered in the victory.

Arruebarrena, who just joined the team on a rehab assignment, blasted his first career Triple-A home run in the sixth inning. The three-run shot came with one out and landed out past left-center field.

That home run gave Albuquerque (51-56) an 11-0 lead. The Isotopes have won nine of their last 11 games.

Tim Federowicz's two-run double was the highlight of a five-run third inning. Federowicz then belted a two-run homer as part of a three-run fourth inning to make it 8-0.

Reno (56-51) scored six runs in its half of the sixth, including an RBI triple by veteran Ronny Cedeno. That only cut Albuquerque's lead to 11-6, however.

The Isotopes tacked on three runs in the eighth. In the ninth, Peterson swatted a two-run homer to cap the scoring.

Carlos Frias (8-4) earned the victory despite allowing six runs in 5.2 innings. He allowed eight hits, walked two and did not record any strikeouts.

Jamie Romak went 4-for-5 with two runs and two RBI. Peterson was 3-for-5 and scored four runs while Federowicz went 3-for-6 with four RBI.

Joc Pederson was 2-for-2 with two runs, a double and drew four walks. Mike Baxter went 3-for-5 with two runs, a double and two RBI.

Albuquerque and Reno will meet again Saturday at 8:05 p.m. Right-hander Zach Lee (6-8, 4.98 ERA) gets the nod for the Isotopes against Aces right-hander Mike Bolsinger (5-1, 3.30).
