Solo homers by Cody Decker and Dean Anna powered the Tucson Padres to a 4-2 victory Monday against the host Reno Aces, extending their winning streak to four.

The Padres jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning as Anna hit his seventh homer of the season and Rene Rivera doubled home Cameron Maybin, who reached base with a walk.

Decker's fourth homer of the year in the seventh inning with two outs gave the Padres the lead for good.

Tucson added an insurance run in the eighth when Mike Wilson scored on Rivera's bases-loaded sacrifice fly.

Sean O'Sullivan (4-3) picked up the win, pitching six innings, striking out four and scattering nine hits.

Reno's Chris Owings extended his PCL-leading hitting streak to 22 games with three hits.
