Reno Aces News Release

Reno, Nev. - With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Tristin English played hero for the Reno Aces (32-36), coming through with a clutch base knock to complete the late comeback and walk off the Sacramento River Cats (42-26) 7-6 on Saturday night at Greater Nevada Field.

Before English could pull through for Reno, Jordan Lawlar delivered a clutch two-RBI triple into right-centerfield to plate Deyvison De Los Santos and Albert Almora to tie the game at six. The Diamondback's #1 overall prospect finished the day going 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, and four total RBI. He hasn't missed a beat since coming back from the injured list (injured thumb), going 8-for-20 (.368) with eight RBI in four games.

Humberto Castellanos took a no-decision on Saturday, allowing six runs on six hits and two walks through five 2/3 innings. Despite the shaky outing, the 26-year-old punched out a season-high 10 River Cats. The right-hander now owns a 5.14 ERA with a 55:23 K: BB in 50 innings.

Brandon Hughes, Austin Pope, and Kyle Backhus came out of the bullpen to relieve Castellanos, combining for three 1/3 scoreless innings with five punchouts and just one walk.

The Aces will look to finish the series against the Sacramento River Cats with a win in Sunday's series finale, with the first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PT.
