Hits Fall for Reno, Not for Chihuahuas in Loss
The Reno Aces held the El Paso Chihuahuas to three hits in their 9-1 win at Southwest University Park Wednesday afternoon. The three hits matched El Paso's lowest hit output of the season.
Chihuahuas catcher A.J. Kennedy hit a solo home run in the fifth inning, his second of the year, to produce El Paso's run. Reno hit five homers Wednesday, setting a new Chihuahuas' season high for home runs allowed in a game. The Aces list of home runs included a pinch-hit shot by former Chihuahua Cody Decker, his 199th career minor league home run.
El Paso relievers Robert Stock and Luis Perdomo each threw a scoreless inning Wednesday. San Diego catcher Francisco Mejia went 1-for-1 as a pinch hitter in his second MLB injury rehab assignment game. The Chihuahuas won seven straight against Reno earlier this season but the Aces have claimed the first two games of the current series.
