Aces Head Home with Series Win in El Paso

Aces Release

5/3/2018

The Aces concluded a nine-game road trip with a series victory over El Paso Thursday night. Right-hander Troy Scribner made one of his best starts of the season, going six innings and striking out six. Reno defeated the Chihuahuas 6-5 in front of a crowd of 6,189 at Southwest University Park. Four Aces finished with multiple hits and as a team, Reno had 11 total hits.  

El Paso jumped out to an early two-run lead in the bottom of the first inning thanks to a two-run blast off the bat of Franmil Reyes. Reyes has homered four times against Reno in the last two games. Reno responded with three of their own in the top of the fourth inning. Five consecutive hits, beginning with Negron, allowed the Aces to retake the lead and never look back. Back-to-back doubles by Michael Perez and Cody Decker in the fifth inning plated two and gave the Aces a 5-2 lead. The Chihuahuas would add one in the home half on Scribner before it was the bullpen’s turn.

Reliever Joey Krehbiel tossed a perfect seventh inning, but allowed a two-run blast in the eight that tied the game. The Aces never hung their heads. Back-to-back walks by Evan Marzilli and Negron set the table for catcher Michael Perez. With a 2-1 count, Perez ripped a fastball into right field allowing Marzilli to score and give the Aces the lead. Jake Barrett closed out the contest with a perfect 1-2-3 inning to earn his 32nd career save with Reno. The Aces will return to Greater Nevada Field tomorrow night to face the Tacoma Rainiers beginning at 6:35 p.m.
