Aces Lose Another Home Game to the Sky Sox

Posted: Updated:
Colorado Springs handed the Aces their fifth home loss over their last seven games with a 6-4 win Monday night at Aces Ballpark.

Reno has fallen behind in every game of the homestand and it continued when Sky Sox second baseman Angelys Nina blasted a two-run homer in the top of the first inning off Andrew Chafin.

In the third, Kyle Parker hit a booming homer to right-center off Chafin to give Colorado Springs a 3-0 lead. They would add another run later in the frame.

The Aces didn’t get on the board until they were already trailing 6-0. With one out in the fifth, Nick Ahmed started a rally with a base hit to right field. Tony Campana followed with a chopper to the mound that pitcher Leuris Gomez threw into center-field trying to cut down Ahmed at second.

Ahmed was at third and Campana was at first when Alfredo Marte hit a sacrifice fly to get Reno on the board. With Nick Evans batting, Campana stole second. After Evans walked, Danny Dorn delivered a run-scoring single to plate the second run of the inning to make it 6-2.

They took advantage of a wild Greg Burke on the mound in the seventh. The Sky Sox right-hander issued three walks, hit a batter and allowed two hits. Blake Lalli drew a bases-loaded walk to make it a 6-3 game, and Argenis Diaz was hit by a pitch with the bases-loaded to draw within two at 6-4.

The Sky Sox ran into a big out in the eighth inning when Delta Cleary failed to get down a suicide squeeze. Tim Wheeler, running from third, was easily tagged out by Lalli near the plate.

Campana led off the bottom of the inning with a hit by pitch but was quickly picked off by Brooks Brown. The righty retired the next five in order to earn the save for Colorado Springs.

During their recent skid over the last seven games, the Aces have left 73 runners on base.

The Aces will try to salvage a series split Tuesday. Right-hander Bo Schultz (4-5, 5.42) starts for the Aces against Colorado Springs left-hander Brian Burres (0-1, 8.38). First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 PST
