The Aces came out victorious Friday night over the Fresno Grizzles, 10-6, and stop me if you have heard this before, Kevin Cron went yard. This time it was a two-run shot over the deepest part of the ballpark in right center that he knew was gone the moment it left his bat. It is Cron’s fourth home run in two games and his team-leading tenth of the season. For Tim Locastro’s encore performance, he went a subtle 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored. As a team the Aces followed up their six home run performance last night, with a four home run game tonight with dingers from Cron, Travis Snider, Juniel Querecuto, and Tyler Heineman. The Aces fell behind in the top of the second, 3-0, but answered right back with a four spot in the bottom of the third and never gave up the lead from there.
On the mound, Taylor Clarke picked up his second win of 2019 throwing 5.1 innings, while surrendering five earned runs, eight hits, and striking out four. The bullpen was solid tonight between Stefan Crichton, Rubby De La Rosa and Jimmie Sherfy allowing just one run over 3.2 innings. The Aces will look for their third straight win for the first time of the season tomorrow whe Justin Donatella takes the ball at 4:05 p.m.
