Aces Release

7/1/2016

The Reno Aces dropped the second game of a four-game series to the El Paso Chihuahuas by a 9-2 score on Friday night at Southwest University Park. Reno went just 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position in the loss, and left a season-high 14 runners on base.

The Chihuahuas got on the board first, taking a 3-0 lead in the third inning. Carlos Asuaje and Hunter Renfroe knocked one-out singles to set up a three-run home run to right field by Austin Hedges, marking the El Paso catcher’s sixth homer this season in 12 games against Reno.

The home team added five more runs in the fourth to extend their advantage to eight. Following a leadoff single and a two-out double, the first two tallies came when an Asuaje line drive bounced off the glove of Aces left fielder Mitch Haniger (@M_Hanny19) for a two-base error. After a Renfroe single, Hedges launched another three-run homer, this time to left field.

El Paso ran its margin to 9-0 in the fifth as Renfroe hit an RBI single to right to plate Manuel Margot, who started a two-out rally with an infield base hit.

After they stranded nine runners through six innings, the Aces got on the board with two runs in the seventh. Jack Reinheimer (@Reinheimer_08) drew a leadoff walk and advanced to third on Haniger’s one-out double before scoring on a sacrifice fly by Kyle Jensen (@TheKJensen42). Mike Freeman (@MikeBFree5) walked after Jensen’s RBI, and then Gabby Guerrero scored Haniger on an RBI single to center.

Jensen’s sac fly gave him 72 RBI for the season, surpassing his total from all of last year. Carlos Pimentel (8-4) earned the win for El Paso after he gave up four hits over five shutout innings with two walks and four strikeouts. Reno lefty Anthony Banda (@anthony_banda22) took the loss and fell to 0-2, allowing eight runs (three earned) on 10 hits (two home runs) over four innings, with one walk and four strikeouts.

The Aces and Chihuahuas continue their four-game series with game three on Saturday at Southwest University Park. First pitch is slated for 6:05 p.m. PT. Right-hander Matt Buschmann (5-6, 5.54) gets the nod for Reno, while righty Edwin Jackson (0-0, 3.00) will start for El Paso.
