The Reno Aces absorbed the worst shutout loss in franchise history, falling 14-0 to the Fresno Grizzlies on Thursday night at Chukchansi Park. Fresno right-hander Mike Hauschild won for the first time in five career outings against Reno, allowing two hits with one walk and nine strikeouts over eight innings, while Fresno’s offense pounded out 20 hits.

The Grizzlies (44-41) got on the board first with a run in the opening frame. With one out, shortstop Alex Bregman took the first pitch he saw out to right field for a solo home run. Fresno extended its lead to 3-0 in the third, as Tyler White followed Preston Tucker’s one-out double with a two-run shot to straightaway center.

In the fifth, a leadoff double by Tucker and another White base hit set up Colin Moran’s sacrifice fly that increased Fresno’s lead to four. Fresno continued the scoring in the seventh as they strung together four singles and a double with one out to produce four more runs and make the score 8-0.

Tucker led off the eighth with his fourth hit of the night, a home run to right that raised the Grizzlies’ advantage to nine. White followed with a single and then came around to score on Nolan Fontana’s two-out double down the right-field line to put Fresno in double digits at 10-0. A walk then loaded the bases before reliever Myles Smith was lifted and utilityman Ed Lucas (@ELuke21) came in to pitch for the first time in his career. Following the pitching change, the Grizzlies completed the scoring with a two-run double by Tony Kemp and a two-run single from Bregman.

Reno (45-42) was shut out for the fourth time overall this season and the second time against Fresno following a 2-0 loss here on May 4. Before tonight, the Aces’ most lopsided shutout loss was on April 24 of last year, when they fell to Las Vegas by a 12-0 score at home. Reno managed just two hits on the night, their fewest since August 31 of last year at Sacramento, when they also had a pair of hits.

The Aces and Grizzlies will continue their four-game series with game two on Friday night. First pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m. PT. Left-hander Edwin Escobar (4-2, 4.91) will start for Reno, while southpaw Tommy Shirley (7-4, 4.46) will toe the rubber for Fresno.
