Aces Lose Pitchers Dual to Zephyrs

Posted: Updated:
New Orleans starter Andrew Heaney nearly recorded a no-hitter on Sunday as the Zephyrs beat the Reno Aces, 1-0.

Reno’s first hit of the night came off the bat of Mike Jacobs to lead off the eighth inning. The Aces also broke up a no-hit bid in the eighth inning almost exactly two years ago in Tacoma on Aug. 18, 2012. In that game, Adam Eaton singled with two outs in the eighth for Reno’s only hit.

Heaney was pulled after the eight scoreless innings. He struck out nine Aces batters in the game.

Aces starter Charles Brewer was equal to the task for most of the game, until Enrique Hernandez led off the sixth inning with an opposite-field homer to right field for the game’s only run.

Brewer went six innings and allowed just the one run on five hits while walking two and fanning six. In two career games against New Orleans, Brewer is 0-1 despite only allowing one run on seven hits over 12 innings.

Reno got its second hit of the night in the ninth inning with two outs, when Ronny Cedeño doubled to left-center field. But Cedeño was stranded on second, as Andy Marte flew out to left to end the game. It also signaled an end to Marte’s 16-game hitting streak.

Arquimedes Caminero worked the scoreless ninth inning for New Orleans for the save. The Zephyrs’ only two-hit game belonged to Kyle Jensen.

Reno and New Orleans will meet again tomorrow night for game three of the series. Right-hander Lucas Harrell (6-3, 5.29) is scheduled to start for the Aces, and the Zephyrs will turn to righty Anthony DeSclafani (2-3, 3.09). First pitch is scheduled for 5 p.m.
