Blake Lalli hit a three-run homer in the third inning that gave the River Cats and early lead Saturday night, but the Aces would claw back. Reno scored two in the fourth on run-scoring singles for Mike Jacobs and Brent Clevlen, then tied it up in the seventh on an RBI ground ball by A.J. Pollock.

The game remained tied at 3-3 until the 10th, when Barton put Sacramento ahead for good with a solo shot off Jonathan Albaladejo.

Jeremy Accardo (1-0) earned the win out of the River Cats bullpen after working 3.0 scoreless innings. Albaladejo (0-1) took the loss.
