Aces Win 5th Straight Game 5-2

Gabriel Arias lasted into the sixth inning and Danny Dorn continued his torrid stretch, driving in a pair of runs to give the Reno Aces (@Aces) a 5-2 victory over the El Paso Chihuahuas Thursday afternoon at Aces Ballpark.

Reno (17-18) never trailed en route to their fifth straight win. The Aces used a two-run first inning to place the visiting Chihuahuas in a rut, and Arias took over from there.

The 25-year-old right-hander – making his Aces debut – struck out Brett Wallace and Cody Decker to escape a first-and-second, one-out jam in the first.

Reno's offense came to life immediately against right-hander Daniel McCutchen (0-3) in the home half. Trayvon Robinson doubled to center and Mike Freeman reached on an infield single to second, moving Robinson to third. With runners at the corners and no outs, Danny Dorn lofted a sacrifice fly to foul territory in left, giving the Aces a 1-0 lead. Two batters later, Blake Lalli  drove a single past shortstop Mike McCoy to score Freeman from second.

With the two-run advantage, Arias again wriggled free in the second. He made a one-out double by Robert Kral go to waste with a flyout and strikeout.

The Aces manufactured another run for Arias in the third to push their lead to three. Freeman singled with one away, stole second – his second swipe of the game – moved to third on a wild pitch, and then scored on a base knock by Dorn.

Inning-ending double plays aided Arias (1-0) in the top of the third and fourth innings, and a 1-2-3 fifth inning qualified the Texas native for the win.

El Paso (19-16) finally scratched a run across in the sixth inning, knocking Arias out of the game. With one out, three straight Chihuahuas reached on base hits, forcing Aces skipper Phil Nevin to utilize his bullpen.

Right-hander Kaleb Fleck (@k_fleck) entered and rewarded Nevin by winning the battle of a 13-pitch at-bat against Jake Goebbert, ending it with a strikeout. He then retired Robert Kral on a foul-out to keep the Aces in front, 3-1.

The Aces answered in the bottom half, scoring two times against southpaw Chris Rearick. Dorn singled, Garrett Weber walked, and after Lalli bunted into a 1-5 fielder's choice, Cody Ransom cleared the bases with a two-run double to the wall in left.

El Paso threatened in the eighth inning, scoring once on a bases-loaded walk issued by left-hander Matt Reynolds. Evan Marshall inherited the high-stress situation, but calmly struck out McCoy to keep Arias in line for the victory.

Closer Jake Barrett converted his ninth save, thanks to the Aces' third inning-ending double play of the game.

Weber finished 0-for-3, ending his hitting streak at 15 games. His walk in the sixth extended his on-base streak to 19 games, however.

Danny Dorn raised his average to .521 after finishing 2-for-3 with two RBI. He now has 11 multi-hit games in 13 starts for the Aces this season.

The series finale is set for Friday night. Right-hander Troy Marks makes his second start for the Aces against left-hander Jason Lane (3-2, 4.60) for the Chihuahuas. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m.
