Reno Tops Salt Lake 8-7 In Series Opener

Posted: Updated:

RENO, Nev.—Reno put up a seven-spot in the fourth inning Thursday night, flipping an early deficit into a commanding lead in an 8-7 victory over the Salt Lake Bees in the series opener at Aces Ballpark.

The Bees took a 3-1 lead in the top of the fourth, but the Aces would answer in a big way in the home half. Reno sent 11 men to the plate in the frame, scoring seven times to take an 8-3 lead. Salt Lake used a Hank Conger three-run homer in the eighth to draw to within two, and it added a run in the ninth to bring the tying run to the plate, but Jonathan Albaladejo preserved the Aces lead and a series-opening victory.

Aces starter Joe Martinez (9-5) earned the victory, scattering three runs—two earned—on nine hits through four innings. Albaladejo—Reno's fifth pitcher of the night—recorded the final three outs to collect the save.

Bees starter Garrett Richards (5-3) took the loss, surrendering eight runs on 11 hits over 3.1 innings of work. Three Salt Lake relievers kept the Aces off the scoreboard over the game's final 4.2 frames.

At the dish for Reno, six Aces registered a multi-hit effort, including Josh Bell and Mike Jacobs, who drove in two runs apiece. The Aces finished 8-for-18 with runners in scoring position and doubled four times.

The series continues on Friday night at Aces Ballpark. LHP Tyler Skaggs (1-0, 4.50 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while the Bees will counter with RHP Matt Shoemaker (6-7, 5.40 ERA). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. PT.

The night will be highlighted by another Saint Mary's Fireworks Friday presented by KRNV News 4. The club will continue its "What Could Have Been Weekend" with Reno Ghost Rider uniforms, and before the game the Aces will aim to Strike Out Hunger with a food drive presented by U.S. Foods to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Wives of Aces players and coaches will be outside the stadium before the game collecting nonperishable food items.
