Reno Aces Game Notes at Las Vegas

August 20, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Reno Aces News Release

Today's Game: Jon Duplantier returns to the Aces starting rotation following a brief stint with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Duplantier enters with a 0-2 record and 6.39 ERA in 10 Triple-A appearances. With the loss last night, Reno's elimination number is eight with 13 games remaining on the Pacific Coast League calendar.

Ouch: Tim Locastro was hit by a pitch yet again in last night's ballgame against the Aviators. It's the ninth time in 28 games for Reno. It was TimmyLo's 25th overall HBP this season between Arizona and Reno. Reno's Andy Young has 30 HBP across Double-A (19) and Triple-A (11), tied with Seth Beer for the most in all Minor League baseball. The Aces activated Wyatt Mathisen from the Injured list today. He leads the PCL with 19 HBP's this year. If you combine Mathisen's 19, Young's 11, and Locastro's nine HBP's they would have 39 total. The Omaha Storm Chasers as a team are last in the PCL in the category with 41, Fresno and Albuquerque each have 43. The Aces have been plunked 73 times this year.

Reno Aces Save Lives: Reno Aces fans, members of the Northern Nevada media market and all community members can join their favorite ballclub in saving lives this summer at Greater Nevada Field through Vitalant.
