20 Homer Club: Andy Young launched his 18th homer of the year last night in an Aces uniform, a three-run blast to center. He's just two home runs away from 20 on the season. The Aces already have three players with at least 20 big flies on the year. Kevin Cron has 38, Wyatt Mathisen has 23, and Yasmany Tomas has 29. Domingo Leyba also has 18 homers on the year and could join the club shortly. The Oklahoma City Dodgers have five players this season with at least 20 homers, the most in the Pacific Coast League. The most players with 20 homers in a season for Reno was three; happening in 2016 (Jensen -30, O'Brien - 24, Haniger - 20) and 2017 (Walker - 32, Arcia - 24, Borenstein - 24).

Roster Moves: The Arizona Diamondbacks recalled outfielder Tim Locastro from Triple-A Reno prior to tonight's game after placing David Peralta on the 10-day injured list with right AC joint inflammation. Ben DeLuzio was transferred to Double-A Jackson. Abraham Almonte was activated from the temporary inactive list. Outfielder Max Murphy was called up from Double-A Jackson. Murphy has played in one game so far this season for Reno coming on July 31 against the Iowa Cubs. In that game he went 2-for-4 with a solo home run.
