There wasn’t a whole lot of offense at Greater Nevada Field on Tuesday night. The Aces fell 5-3 to the El Paso Chihuahuas. Anthony Recker scored their first run of the game in the seventh, hitting a solo home run. Jack Reinheimer drove in two in the bottom of the ninth, contributing to a rally that fell just short. The loss brings Reno to a record of 4-9, their worst start since 2013.
Reinheimer was the only player to record a multi-hit game. The 2016 Pacific Coast League All-Star went 2-for-4 with a walk, raising his season average to .261. Tomorrow’s game at 6:35 will feature Matt Koch for the Aces and Chris Huffman for the Chihuahuas, both looking for their first win.
