Aces Release

The Reno Aces blanked the Las Vegas 51s, 3-0, Monday night at Aces Ballpark to secure a series win against their in-state rivals.

Starter Caleb Clay tossed five shutout frames before turning it over to the bullpen. The combination of Keith Hessler, Evan Marshall, Enrique Burgos and Addison Reed finished the final four innings to preserve the Aces' second shutout of the season.

The Aces got on the board early when Las Vegas starter Darin Gorski issued back-to-back walks to Danny Worth and Nick Evans in the first inning. Jamie Romak made it hurt when he lined a double down the left-field line to score Worth and give Reno a 1-0 lead. It was Romak's 32nd double of the season and 81st RBI.

Clay kept the 51s off the board with the benefit of the double play ball. He finished the second and third innings with matching 4-6-3 double plays.

Reno upped their lead in the fourth with the help of another free pass. With one out, Clay worked a walk to spark a rally against Gorski. Mike Freeman followed with a base hit up the middle to put a pair of runners on for Worth.

The shortstop came through with a double down the left-field line to score both runners and give the Aces a 3-0 lead. Worth has eight hits and nine RBI over his last four games.

Las Vegas threatened in the sixth when they loaded the bases with nobody out. Lefty Keith Hessler relieved Clay and got catcher Johnny Monell to pop out for the first out of the inning. Then he induced an inning-ending 1-2-3 double play to escape the jam with no damage.

Hessler and Marshall combined on a scoreless seventh, and Burgos worked around a lead-off walk in the eighth to put up another zero.

Closer Addison Reed issued a pair of walks in the ninth but came back to strike out Cory Vaughn, then retired Jayce Boyd on a groundout to end it.

Clay picked up the win, his team-high seventh of the season. Reed notched his fifth save of the season with Reno.

The Aces have a scheduled off day Tuesday before they welcome the Fresno Grizzlies for a three-game series scheduled to begin Wednesday night. Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (2-3, 3.22) starts for Reno against right-hander Mike Hauschild (4-2, 3.32) for Fresno.
