Notes:

Domingo's Homers: Domingo Leyba's home run last night gave him 10 home runs on the season. Leyba's previous season-high with home runs was set in 2016 between High-A Visalia and Double-A Mobile with at 10. He played 130 games that season, hit .296 and drove in 60 RBI. This year, Leyba is batting .308 with 10 homers, 3 triples, 19 doubles in 54 games.

Lunchbox Hero: Travis Snider says he loves two things - playing baseball and eating meat. This means he's probably starting on the right foot with Reno Aces fans. The non-vegetarian ones, anyway. The nickname was given to Snider in High School following an impressive eating display at Taco Bell with his football teammates. Fans that follow him on Twitter @LunchBoxHero45 will see lots of posts about food, mostly steaks and red meat. "One of my old Little League coaches and a second father to me, he works for a wholesale meat company so he brings over some of the finest red meat available to the public and over the years I've been spoiled to eat this incredible beef on a regular basis. For me, that's kind of where I fell in love with cooking and since then it's evolved from just barbeque to the crock pot, to the oven, to the electric smoker. My mouth is watering right now just thinking about it."

Aces Leading: With a homer last night, the Aces have homered in a franchise-best 24 consecutive games. The streak began on May 11 and continues into tonight's ballgame. Since May 11, Reno leads all of professional baseball (Majors and Minors) in home runs-63, RBI-180, doubles-62 and total bases 519.
