Aces Drop Series Finale, Return Home Wednesday

April 22, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Reno Aces News Release

El Paso, Texas - The Reno Aces offense failed to get the bats going at Southwest University Park this morning, dropping game four of the series by a score of 4-3. Southpaw Anthony Vasquez did his part to keep Reno in the game (5.1 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 4 K), but Reno's four total hits couldn't get it done. Kevin Cron was the lone bright spot offensively this afternoon, finishing 1-for-4 with a solo blast. Cron's homer in the sixth was his 6th of the season and team-leading 19th RBI.

El Paso wasted little time getting into the scoring column. It took all of five pitches for the Chihuahuas to take a 1-0 lead. Michael Gettys got the game started with a double into right field off Vasquez. Luis Urias followed in a 2-2 count with a RBI two-base hit into left field. Josh Naylor extended the El Paso lead in the bottom of the third with a RBI double. Naylor now has six doubles on the season. Yasmany Tomas made things interesting with a two-run shot in the top of the 9th, but with two outs, it was too little too late. The Aces return home to Greater Nevada Field on Wednesday and will take on the division-leading Fresno Grizzlies.
