Buchanan Gives Aces 700th Regular Season Win

Posted: Updated:

Aces Release

6/7/2018

The Aces had just about everything working for them on Thursday night in Nashville. Starter Jake Buchanan was magnificent, allowing just one earned run in seven innings of work. Reno’s offense also came to play, recording seven runs on 12 hits and two home runs. The reigning Pacific Coast League Player of the Week, Kevin Cron, had his first multi-home run game in Triple-A tonight to lead the offensive charge. The win tonight was the Aces’ 700th Regular Season victory in the Pacific Coast League and moves their 2018 record to 27-34.

Reno wasted little time getting into the scoring column in the Music City. Cesar Puello was the Aces first baserunner of the night, drawing a one-out walk in the top of the first. Christian Walker put Puello on third base with a double off the outfield wall before passing the bat to Socrates Brito. Brito just missed a Ben Bracewell fastball, but settled for a sacrifice fly to give Reno a 1-0 advantage. Cron picked up Brito with a towering home run over the left field wall, his seventh of the season, extending the lead to three. The Aces would tack on a run in the second and fifth inning, respectfully. Up by a score of 5-0, Cron put this game out of reach with his second home run of the evening. His seventh-inning blast gave Cron his 8th career multi-home run game and first in Triple-A. Joey Krehbiel and Michael Dimock combine for two innings of scoreless ball behind Buchanan to finish the game. Reno will head to Memphis tomorrow to take on the Redbirds.

    A northern Nevada man did not have symptoms of a heart attack. Rather, he felt a little tightness in his chest during high-intensity workouts and he suspected asthma. However, what he learned about his body might surprise you as much as it shocked him. Why Dane Hillyard says working out with a heart rate monitor likely saved his life.
