Aces Release

5/11/2018

Reno dropped the fourth and final game of the series against the Albuquerque Isotopes tonight by a score of 5-1. Reno scattered 10 hits, but only came up with one run. Aces starter Kris Medlen went 5.2 innings, allowed seven hits and one earned run. A Jack Reinheimer fielding error in the top of the first inning allowed four additional Isotopes runs to come across. Offensively, Socrates Brito raised his average to .341 with a 3-for-4 night. This is Brito’s 13 multi-hit game of the year, most of any Aces player.

Trailing by five after three innings of play, Reno would get into the scoring column in the bottom of the fourth. Brito started the inning with a sharp line drive into center field. Kevin Cron followed suit with a RBI single to score the run and narrow the lead. Cron’s RBI single is third of the year, and third in the last two games. The Aces were held scoreless the rest of the evening, moving their record to 14-22 on the year. Reno will take on the El Paso Chihuahuas tomorrow with the first pitch slated for 6:35 p.m. RHP Taylor Clarke will get the ball for Greg Gross looking for his third win of the year.
