Ka'aihue Homer Pushes Reno To 9-8 Walk-Off Win

Posted: Updated:

 

Reno first baseman Kila Ka'aihue recorded his first multi-home run game of the season on Sunday afternoon, lifting the Aces to a 9-8 walk-off victory over the Iowa Cubs at Aces Ballpark.

 

The Aces entered the ninth down 8-6. Tyler Kuhn was walked to leadoff the inning, then driven home on a single by Evan Frey. Ka'aihue came to the plate with two outs, and hit a home run onto the berm in right field, marking the second Aces walk-off victory of the season.

 

At the dish for Reno, Ka'aihue went 2-for-5 with three RBI. Frey, Alfredo Marte, and Juan Rivera also collected two hits for the Aces on the afternoon. 

 

Reliever Matt Gorgen did not allow a run or hit through the final frame to earn the win for Reno. Aces starter Randall Delgado gave up six earned runs on six hits through 5.0 innings, and is still in search of his first win of the season.

 

Blake Parker, who earned a save against the Aces in last night's contest, was charged with a blown save and the loss for the Cubs.

 

The series continues Monday night at Aces Ballpark. RHP Zeke Spruill (1-0, 1.42 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while the Cubs will counter with RHP Nick Struck (0-3, 6.85 ERA). First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. PT, and fans can enjoy another Margarita Monday presented by Alice @ 96.5.

 

Tickets are on sale for Monday's game, and all Aces home games, at RenoAces.com, by calling (775) 334-7000 or by visiting the Aces Ballpark Ticket Office.
