Round Rock Downs Reno in Opener, 9-4

Posted: Updated:

 

Two hits and two RBIs apiece for Josh Bell and Cole Gillespie weren't enough for the Aces Tuesday night, as Reno dropped a 9-4 decision to the Round Rock Express in the series opener at Aces Ballpark.

 Round Rock took an early 4-0 lead in the third inning, and after the Aces answered back with three in the fourth, the Express put up another four-spot in the fifth to take a lead they wouldn't relinquish, handing the Aces their fourth-straight loss.

 Aces starter Tyler Skaggs (4-2) was pinned with the loss, surrendering eight runs on 10 hits over 5.0 innings of work. After his exit, relievers Matt Gorgen and Joe Paterson held the Express to just a run over the game's final four frames.

 The win went to Round Rock starter Justin Grimm (2-1), who scattered four runs on eight hits through 6.2 innings.

 Five different Aces registered a multi-hit effort on the evening. Reno hit into four double plays on the night—matching a season-high.

 The series continues on Wednesday night at Aces Ballpark. Charles Brewer (9-6, 5.59 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while Round Rock counters with LHP Martin Perez (5-6, 4.73 ERA). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. PT, and it'll be another Aces WINSday at the ballpark.

 Tickets are on-sale now at RenoAces.com, by calling (775) 334-7000 or by visiting the Aces Ballpark Ticket Office.
