Aces Bid for Sweep Falls Short in El Paso

 Aces Release

8/5/2014

For the third time this season, the Aces were denied of a series sweep. After winning the first three games of the series, the Aces dropped the finale, 4-2, to the El Paso Chihuahuas Tuesday night at Southwest University Park.

Reno failed to piece together a sustained rally as the loss snapped a four-game winning streak. They collected nine hits but went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left 13 on base.

The Chihuahuas made noise early when they scored three runs against Mike Bolsinger. Jake Goebbert ripped a two-run double over the head of right-fielder Zach Borenstein to put El Paso on the board early.

Two batters later, second baseman Taylor Lindsey plated another run with an RBI single but was thrown out trying to advance to second to end the inning. From there, Bolsinger found a groove and retired the next 12 batters he faced.

Reno put their first run on the board in the third on a run-scoring groundout by Mike Jacobs.

Trailing 4-1 after six innings, Aces’ third baseman Jake Lamb cut the lead in half with an RBI double in the top of the seventh. Lamb has hit safely in all five games he has played with Reno and is hitting .500 (9-for-18) with 1 home run and 4 doubles since being called up from Double-A Mobile.

Reno had six hits in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings but only plated the one run.

El Paso closer Jerry Sullivan walked the bases loaded in the ninth but Zach Borenstein took a called third strike to end the game.

The Aces won six games on the eight-game trip to Fresno and El Paso, and return to Aces Ballpark Thursday night to take on the Pacific Northern-leading Sacramento Rivercats.

Right-hander Mike Lee (1-1, 3.48) starts for the Aces. The Rivercats have not named a starter for game one of the five-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
