Aces Drop 6-3 Decision To Omaha In Series Opener

Posted: Updated:

Papillion, Neb.—Reno raced out to an early lead in Wednesday's series opener, but the Omaha Storm Chasers answered with four runs in the third and two more in the fourth en route to a 6-3 victory over the Aces at Werner Park.

The Aces pushed across three runs in the top of the third, using a two-run double by Josh Bell and an RBI single for Cole Gillespie to take a 3-0 lead. The advantage would, however, be short-lived. Omaha took its first lead in the home half of the frame and added on in the next inning, building a three-run lead that would prove to be enough.

Reno starter and Omaha native Zach Kroenke (5-3) took the loss, surrendering six runs on nine hits through five innings of work. After his exit, Sam Demel dealt two scoreless frames, and Joe Paterson worked a scoreless eighth.

The win went to Storm Chasers starter Doug Davis (6-2), who scattered three runs on six hits over six innings. Vin Mazzaro picked-up the save, his fourth of the season.

At the plate for Reno, Bell led the way two RBIs, while Adam Eaton and Taylor Harbin registered two-hit efforts for the Aces.

The series continues Thursday night. RHP Joe Martinez (10-7, 5.64 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while Omaha will counter with LHP Ryan Verdugo (7-3, 3.82 ERA). First pitch is set for 5:05 p.m. PT at Werner Park.
