Notes & Information
Cron Watch: Did Kevin Cron homer tonight? He did not. He’s just one home run shy of becoming the Aces all-time leader in home runs. His next big fly would be his 56th in a Reno uniform, passing Mike Jacobs and Brandon Allen for the most all-time.
Nine runs, no fun: In the fifth inning of tonight’s ballgame, the Oklahoma City Dodgers scored the most runs in a single inning against the Aces this season. They did it on eight hits including two home runs. It is the most amount of runs the Aces gave up in a single inning this season. The previous high was eight runs happening twice with the last time coming on May 19 courtesy of the Tacoma Rainiers.
