Cron Wins It for Reno in 2019 Home Finale
Reno, NV. - The final baseball game at Greater Nevada Field of 2019 was won by the Aces, 10-9, in walk-off fashion Sunday afternoon. Trailing 9-7 in the 10th inning, Abraham Almonte and Carlos Asuaje tied the game with RBI-singles. Kevin Cron then walked it off with a missile up the middle to score Almonte and win the game for Reno. It wasn't the only comeback, however. Trailing 6-2 in the sixth inning, the Aces put up a five-spot to take the lead. Carlos Asuaje and Lucas Herbert each had RBIs in the inning. It would be Abraham Almonte with the big hit though, a three-run blast onto the right field berm. The homer was his second of the game. The Bees initially took the lead in the top of the 10th on Jared Walsh's third dinger of the game, but it wasn't enough. The win was the first in extra-innings this season for Reno. Lucas Luetge earned the win in relief while Jake Jewell got the loss. Reno will hit the road for the final eight games of the regular season starting Monday. They will take on Sacramento and Johnny Cueto making a rehab start at 7:05 p.m. PT. tomorrow.

Notes & Information

Relief Dup: Jon Duplantier made his first appearance of the season for Reno out of the bullpen today. Prior to the outing, he was 0-2 with a 5.82 ERA in 11 starts this season. Today he went two innings allowing no runs on one hit to go with two strikeouts. The move is most likely in preparation for a move to the D-backs' bullpen for September call ups.
