Aces Beat El Paso

Aces Release

The Reno Aces (@Aces) scored a series-opening 2-1 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas Monday night thanks to a brilliant performance by right-hander Caleb Clay (@CalebClay).

Two days ago, Clay wasn't on the Reno Aces' (3-2) roster. By technical terms, he was a member of the Hillsboro Hops, the Northwest League affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. When fellow right-hander A.J. Schugel (@Schug_Knight) was called up by the D-backs, Clay got the boost to Reno.

Working in a quick and efficient (70 pitches/49 strikes) manner, Clay shut out the Chihuahuas (2-3) over six innings. He scattered three hits and two walks, and racked up five strikeouts in the process.

The Aces wasted little time getting a lead for Clay. Jamie Romak singled to left-field to lead off the game, and quickly moved to third when Danny Dorn followed with a double. Nick Evans followed Dorn with an RBI groundout, giving Reno a 1-0 lead in the opening frame.

It remained that way as Clay settled into a groove. In the first three innings, Clay got three double plays via ground balls. He worked around a two-out walk in the fourth, a one-out error in the fifth, and retired the side in order in the sixth.

Reno put an insurance run on the board in the seventh. Mike Freeman (@MikeBFree5) started the frame with a sharp single to right, but was quickly erased by Evan Marzilli's (@marzooch) fielder's choice.

Romak singled to put Marzilli on third, and Dorn followed with a run-scoring single to give the Aces a 2-0 lead.

The combination of Dan Runzler and J.C. Ramirez made quick work of the Chihuahuas in the seventh and eighth innings, facing the minimum six batters.

The ninth was a different story as the Chihuahuas cut the lead in half on Austin Hedges' two-out, RBI single. El Paso had the tying run on third in the form of Rymer Liriano, but closer Jake Barrett (@BJBace99) struck out Alex Dickerson to slam the door.

The two club's will play game two of the four-game set Tuesday morning. Left-hander Vidal Nuño (1-0, 1.80) starts for the Aces against left-hander Jason Lane (1-0, 7.20) for the Chihuahuas. First pitch is scheduled for 10:05 a.m. PST.
