Reno Aces News Release

Reno, Nev. - Despite a 10-hit, 10-walk effort, the Reno Aces (30-34) were taken down by the Sacramento River Cats (40-24) in a 14-12 defeat in Tuesday's series opener at Greater Nevada Field.

Making his return to the Aces lineup after recovering from a thumb injury, Jordan Lawlar wasted no time making an impact.

Kyle Garlick got the Aces on the board in the first inning with a three-run home run, scoring Lawlar and Adrian Del Castillo for his team-leading 15 th home run. The California native now ranks third in home runs in the Pacific Coast League.

Deyvison De Los Santos extended his hitting streak to 11 games after going 1-for-4 with a 110.7 MPH RBI-double into the right-center field gap. In that span, the power-hitting first baseman has gone 16-for-42 (.380) with three home runs and 11 RBI.

The Aces will look for their first series win over the Sacramento River Cats in Wednesday's matchup, with the first pitch scheduled for 6:35 p.m. PT.
