Aces Shutout by Memphis

Posted: Updated:

The Memphis sun wasn’t kind to the Aces on Sunday afternoon. Reno was shutout (6-0) by the Redbirds despite out-hitting the home team 11 to nine. Left-hander Alex Young earned the first loss of his Triple-A career, moving to (2-1) on the season. Ildemaro Vargas finished today’s contest 1-for-5, but extended his hitting streak to a season-high 11 games. During that span, Vargas is 15-for-50 with seven runs and five RBI. Cesar Puello led the Aces offensively this afternoon, finishing a perfect 4-for-4 to set a new season-high.

Rangel Ravelo gave the Redbirds an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Ravelo took a 2-1 Alex Young fastball over the left-center field wall for his fifth home run of the season. A solo home run by Adolis Garcia in the bottom of the fifth extended their lead to 3-0 and raised Young’s ERA to 3.57 on the season. Memphis got to Aces reliever in the bottom of the eighth, tacking on three more runs to end the scoring outburst. The loss moves Reno to a record of 29-35 on the season and eliminates the Aces chances of a series sweep in Memphis. Reno will take on the Redbirds one more time before returning home to Greater Nevada Field on June 13th. For tickets and more information visit renoaces.com or call 775-334-7000.
