The Reno Aces got six shutout innings from Aaron Blair and hit four home runs on their way to a 7-0 win over the Tacoma Rainiers Wednesday night at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma.

The shutout was the third of the season for the Aces, and the ninth time in team history they have blanked the Rainiers – the most against any team in the Pacific Coast League.

Nick Evans started the home run derby early when he launched a solo homer down the left-field line off of Tacoma starter Forrest Snow.

Blake Lalli gave the Aces a 2-0 lead when he started the third inning with another solo shot, his third of the year. The long ball didn’t stop there as Jamie Romak blasted his 22nd home run of the year with one out in the top of the fourth.

Mike Freeman  drew a walk, and two batters later Todd Glaesmann  drilled the fourth homer of the game, a two-run smash to left to give the Aces a 5-0 lead. The four home runs is tied for the most Reno has hit in a single game this season.

The multiple home runs were more than enough for Blair and the bullpen. The right-hander delivered six shutout innings and allowed just two hits. In three of the innings, he retired the side in order. Over the course of his 112 pitches, he issued four walks and notched six strikeouts.

Reno added two more runs in the fifth when a balk brought home Jordan Pacheco  and a sacrifice fly plated by Brandon Drury plated Nick Buss.

Blair turned a 7-0 lead over to the bullpen in the later innings. Kevin Munson did his part when he worked a pair of scoreless innings. Southpaw Matt Reynolds worked a 1-2-3 bottom of the ninth to close out the win.

Blair improved to 4-1 on the season and dropped his ERA to 3.86 in seven starts with the Aces. Evans led the charge at the plate with a home run and double to highlight a 3-for-5 night. Buss, Romak, Glaesmann and Lalli joined Evans with multi-hit games. 

Game two of the five-game series is set for Thursday night at Cheney Stadium. The Aces have not announced a starter to go against right-hander Jordan Pries (6-3, 5.35) for the Rainiers. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
