The Reno Aces could not extend their winning streak to six, losing this afternoon by a score of 3-1. Taylor Clarke got the nod for Greg Gross Monday. The right-hander went five innings and allowed two runs on six hits. Offensively, the Aces were held in check by Tacoma lefty Roenis Elias (6.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 4 K). The loss drops Reno to a record of 13-19, but the Aces did capture the series over Tacoma 3-1.
Tacoma jumped on the Aces in the top of the first inning. Gordon Beckham singled on a ground ball to left field with one out in the inning. After a Daniel Vogelbach walk, Chris Herrmann laced a Clarke fastball into center field to bring in Beckham and give Tacoma a 1-0 lead. The lone Reno run came in the bottom of the second inning off the bat of Jack Reinheimer. The RBI for Reinheimer was the 114th of his career, 10th all-time in Aces history. Reno will begin a four-game series against the Albuquerque Isotopes tomorrow evening. For tickets and more information visit renoaces.com or call (775) 334-7000.
