Aces Snap Losing Streak and Beat Fresno 5-1

Posted: Updated:
 Right-hander Edgar Garcia delivered a brilliant outing at the perfect time for the Reno Aces (@Aces). Garcia limited the Fresno Grizzlies to one run over seven innings in a 5-1 Aces win Tuesday afternoon at Chukchansi Park.

Losers of a season-long six consecutive games, the Aces leaned on Garcia from the start. Pitching in just his second Triple-A game, he didn't allow a hit until Robbie Grossman's two-out single in the bottom of the fifth.

He kept the Grizzlies off the scoreboard until the seventh when L.J. Hoes hit a solo homer. By then, Reno had built a big lead behind a few timely hits.

Garrett Weber (@_weber5) and Todd Glaesmann (@toddglaesman22) sparked the scoring with back-to-back doubles in the top of the third. A single by Nick Buss (@chilibuss) put Glaesmann at third who then scored on Danny Dorn's sacrifice fly to make it 2-0.

With two outs in the fifth, Buss lined a base hit to center to start a rally. Dorn followed with a two-run homer to right-field to give the Aces a 4-0 lead. It was the 150th career homer for Dorn.

Freeman made it a 5-0 Aces lead with a run-scoring double in the sixth. It came two batters after Nick Evans started the inning with his 20th double of the season.

The home run by Hoes got the Grizzlies on the board to make it a 5-1 game in the seventh. Kaleb Fleck (@k_fleck) pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Matt Stites (@matt_stites) put a zero on the board in the ninth to lock down the win.

Garcia allowed just the one run on three hits in seven strong innings. He issued one walk and struck out two in the process.

Buss was 3-for-5 and Freeman had his 19th multi-hit game of the year in a 2-for-4 effort.

The Aces travel to Las Vegas to begin a four-game series with the 51s set to begin on Thursday. Right-hander Allen Webster (2-2, 9.00) starts for Reno against left-hander Steven Matz (6-4, 1.91) for Las Vegas. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
