Aces Release

5/3/2017

The Reno Aces (16-11) were victorious over the Salt Lake Bees (15-12) for a second consecutive night, Wednesday at Greater Nevada Field. Keyvius Sampson (3-1) earned his third consecutive win of the season after tossing five innings while allowing one earned run. Ketel Marte highlighted the Aces offense after going 3-for-4 with a season-high five RBI and was a home run shy of the cycle in the Aces 9-6 win.

After a run for each side in the first inning, the Aces jumped on the Bees in the second with five runs. Zach Borenstein initiated the run parade with a one-out, opposite field double, who would end up scoring after Hank Conger walked and Ronnie Freeman singled up the middle. After Ildemaro Vargas added another single to load the bases, Ketel Marte lasered a triple down the right field line to clear the bases and plate three more to give the Aces a 6-1 lead.

With the Aces up 7-1 after scoring one more in the third, Salt Lake started to trail back and plated two runs in the fourth and one in the fifth to minimize the deficit to three runs.

However, in the sixth, the Aces tacked on two additional runs after Hank Conger and Marte both doubled in the inning, cushioning Reno's lead to 9-4.

The Bees continued the pressure once more in the late innings, first off with a run in the seventh and eighth, and in the ninth, loaded the bases with the potential tying run on first base against Aces closer, Silvino Bracho. After a lead-off single and two, two-out walks, Bracho battled the potential go-ahead run Tony Sanchez in an eight-pitch at-bat and struck him out looking on a 3-2 count to end the contest, marking his third save of 2017.

Ketel Marte continues to lead all of professional baseball with his 47 hits. Reymond Fuentes went 1-for-4 on the night, extending his hit streak to 13 games.

The Aces continue into game three the four-game series against the Salt Lake Bees tomorrow morning, May 4 at Greater Nevada Field with first pitch set for 11:35 a.m.
