Aces Release

8/18/2015

The Reno Aces set season-highs in hits and runs in a 17-11 win over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Tuesday night at Security Service Field.

The 17 runs and 23 hits came from everybody in the lineup for the Aces (60-63), but notably Mike Freeman, Danny Dorn and Brandon Drury who all had at least four hits in the game.

Freeman went 4-for-5 with a 3 runs scored, 2 walks and an RBI. Dorn was 4-for-6 with 5 RBI, 3 runs scored, 2 doubles and a home run. Drury matched a career-high with 5 hits to go along with 3 runs scored and an RBI.

Trailing 2-0 into the second inning, Reno exploded for eight runs in the second inning and held off multiple Sky Sox (51-72) rally's the rest of the way.

Drury got the big inning started when he belted a solo homer to center, his second of the year with the Aces. It didn't slow down as Jordan Pacheco singled, and Freeman and Dorn drew walks to load the bases for Nick Evans who cleared everybody with a three-run double to give Reno a 4-2 lead.

Colorado Springs starter Josh Roenicke then walked Jamie Romak to put a pair of runners on for Peter O'Brien who launched a three-run blast to left-field to make it a 7-2 Aces advantage.

Drury followed with a double, his second hit of the inning, and Matt Pagnozzi singled to add another run to cap the eight-run frame.

Despite the large deficit, the Sky Sox didn't pack it in. They came back with two runs in the second, two in the third, and three in the fourth. The defense didn't help starter Caleb Clay as Romak committed an error in the second and O'Brien misplayed two balls hit to the outfield in the third. The three runs in the fourth trimmed the Aces lead to 12-9.

Reliever Seth Simmons finally cooled the Sky Sox bats and put up zeroes in the fifth and sixth innings.

Three runs in the seventh for the Aces put the game out of reach. Hits in the inning came from O'Brien, Drury, Pacheco, Freeman and Dorn.

After Kevin Munson tossed scoreless seventh and eighth innings, Dorn added a pair of insurance runs when he drilled a two-run homer to right to up the lead to 17-9.

Colorado Springs scored two in the ninth, but Kevin Vance got a 4-6-3 double play to end the game and close a series win for the Aces.

O'Brien was 3-for-6 with 4 RBI, Pacheco was 3-for-5 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored, and Evans was 2-for-5 with 3 RBI.

Simmons picked up the win in relief to improve his record to 3-3, while Roenicke was tagged with the loss to fall to 6-10.

The Aces travel to Oklahoma City where they begin a four-game series with the Oklahoma City Dodgers Wednesday night. Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (5-3, 3.28) starts for the Aces against right-hander Brandon Beachy (1-1, 3.64) for the Dodgers. First pitch is scheduled for 5:05 p.m. PST.
