The Reno Aces lost a nail biter Sunday afternoon in Sacramento, falling 7-6 in walk-off fashion. With Stefan Crichton on the mound in the bottom of the 9th inning, Eury Perez singled home Madison Younginer to win the ballgame. The loss moves Reno to a record of 7-17 heading into a four-game series in El Paso starting tomorrow. Aces starter Jake Buchanan performed well, tossing four innings and allowing just one earned run.

The Aces bullpen struggled this afternoon, yielding 11 walks in 4.1 innings. Neftali Feliz and Jared Miller both walked four, and Crichton earned the loss after walking two and allowing a single hit. Reno will send veteran right-hander Kris Medlen to the mound tomorrow to take on El Paso righty Chris Huffman. The first pitch from Southwest University Park is slated for 5:35 p.m. and can be found on MiLB.tv or KPLY 630 AM.
