With the series-opening win, the Aces are a season-high 12 games over .500 and have won eight of their last nine contests.
McCarthy’s three-run shot in the fifth inning was tattooed 422 feet over the right-center field wall, while Thomas’ blast traveled 429 feet off the center field batter’s eye in the eighth inning. The pair of outfielders combined for seven hits, three extra-base hits (two homers), seven RBI, and five runs scored.
