Aces get Stung and Swept by Bees

Posted: Updated:

The Reno (@Aces) couldn’t capitalize on numerous scoring opportunities in a 4-1 loss to the Salt Lake Bees Sunday afternoon at Smith’s Ballpark.

Reno (44-51) remained winless after the Pacific Coast League All-Star break, in large part because of a 0-for-7 showing with runners in scoring position against the Bees in the series finale.

For the third consecutive game, the Aces took an early lead over Salt Lake (38-57). Garrett Weber (@_weber5) blasted a one-out solo homer in the second inning – his second in as many days – but the offense went silent afterwards.

Two of Reno’s best scoring opportunities came in the first and third innings, but they both ended in similar fashion. Salt Lake starter Jo-Jo Reyes (2-1) walked the bases loaded in the first, setting up Todd Glaesmann (@toddglaesmann22) with one away. The Aces’ center fielder bounced into a 5-4-3 double play, however, ending the threat.

Glaesmann was presented a chance at redemption in the third, coming to the dish with runners at first and second and only one out. The left-handed Reyes induced another ground ball off of Glaesmann’s bat, resulting in a 6-4-3 twin killer.

Salt Lake failed to record a hit with runners in scoring position as well - going 0-for-12 for the game - but a pair of productive outs in the fourth inning grabbed them the lead for good. Aces lefty Justin Marks (5-7) faced the minimum one time through the order, but two singles and a walk created a bases-loaded situation for Efren Navarro. The Bees’ slugger hit a sacrifice fly to left, tying the game at one. Moments later, Kaleb Cowart put the Bees on top with a sacrifice fly to center.

Trailing 2-1, the Aces again gave themselves opportunities to tie or take the lead in the fifth and sixth innings. A leadoff walk in the fifth was eventually stranded at second base. Romak then walked and Glaesmann singled to begin the sixth, but both went to waste after Peter O’Brien sacrificed them up 90 feet as Weber and Danny Worth struck out swinging, thwarting Reno’s last threat.

The Aces’ final 11 batters were retired in order, six coming on strikeouts.

The Bees continued the Pacific Southern Division dominance over Reno, sweeping the four-game series while dropping Reno to a combined 16-27 against Salt Lake, Las Vegas, El Paso and Albuquerque for the season. The Aces have lost seven straight to Salt Lake and 14 of their last 15 to Pacific Southern Division teams.

Reno now returns to Aces Ballpark for an 11-game, 12-day homestand scheduled to begin tomorrow night against Albuquerque. Right-hander Edgar Garcia (3-1, 4.18) gets the nod for Reno against Albuquerque right-hander Boone Whiting (2-2, 4.78).
