Aces Snap 10 Game Losing Streak to 51s with 12-2 Win

Posted: Updated:

The Reno Aces (@Aces) wasted little time in deciding the fate of Friday night’s game against in-state rival Las Vegas. They scored seven runs in the bottom of the first inning on their way to a 12-2 win over the 51s in front of 8,077 fans at Aces Ballpark.

Mike Freeman (@MikeBFree5) started the monster rally with a double down the right-field line. 51s starter Tyler Pill retired Brandon Drury for the first out of the inning, but allowed the next six to reach. Nick Evans walked and Jamie Romak supplied the first two runs of the game with a line-drive double to the center field wall.

Danny Dorn and Peter O’Brien drew back-to-back walks to load the bases for Danny Worth who cleared the bases with a double down the left field line to make it 5-0.

Blake Lalli (@BlakeLalli) followed with a single and pitcher Aaron Blair (@A_Blair19) moved him to second with a sacrifice bunt. Freeman came up and collected his second hit of the inning, a two-run double to up the lead to 7-0. Freeman is the first Ace to have two hits in one inning since Nick Ahmed during the 2014 PCL Playoffs.

Reno was back at it in the third when they plated another three runs. O’Brien started the frame with a triple to right-center, and scored on Worth’s second hit of the night – an RBI single to right field. Lalli followed with a two-run homer to right to give the Aces a commanding 10-0 lead.

The runs were more than enough for Blair who scattered seven hits over seven innings. The right-hander allowed just two runs and struck out five in his second win with the Aces.

Evans doubled to start another rally in the sixth. O’Brien notched RBI number 68 with a groundout to third to score Evans. Worth’s third hit of the night brought in another run to extend the lead to 12-2. The shortstop finished the night 3-for-5 with a season-high 5 RBI and 2 runs scored.

Outside of the pitcher spot, every player in the Aces starting lineup collected a hit in the 14-hit barrage. Freeman and Lalli joined Worth with multi-hit games.

Game two of the series is scheduled for Saturday night at Aces Ballpark. Left-hander Justin Marks (5-7, 5.22) starts for Reno against right-hander Luis Cessa (0-2, 9.45) for Las Vegas. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
