Aces Fall to Las Vegas

Posted: Updated:

A hot start for the Reno Aces wasn’t enough to secure the victory on Saturday night. Anthony Vasquez got the start for Reno, tossing six innings of two-run baseball while striking out six.

Negron’s triple in the bottom of the 5th inning ties him for sixth all-time in Aces history with 13 triples. The 5-4 loss brings Reno to a record of 24-33 on the season, 10 games back of the first-place Fresno Grizzlies.

Anthony Recker got the Aces offense going in the bottom of the first inning. After Negron singled, Recker delivered his team-leading 26th RBI of the season on a sharp line-drive double. Las Vegas Former Aces outfielder Zach Borenstein responded in the top of the second with a two-run home run to give Las Vegas a one-run lead. In the bottom of the third, Ildemaro Vargas ran into a Corey Oswalt fastball for his fourth home run of the season. The Aces added their fourth and final run in the bottom of the fifth inning, but a three-run seventh for the 51’s was too much for the Aces to overcome.
