Texas Remains Unpleasant for Aces
San Antonio, Texas - Texas has not been good to the ballclub from the Biggest Little City in 2019. With an 8-4 loss tonight in San Antonio, the Aces are now 1-5 in the Lone Star state this season. The Aces jumped into the scoring column in the top of the first inning tonight. Jake Lamb, down on Major League rehab, drove in Abraham Almonte to give Reno their first lead of the night. San Antonio responded with one of their own in the first, three in the second and four runs in the third. Ricky Nolasco was chased after 2.2 innings of work for manager Chris Cron. Nolasco allowed eight runs on seven hits and struck out two in his second career outing with Reno. The Aces will face San Antonio one last time before heading into the off day on Wednesday and returning to Greater Nevada Field Thursday. Matt Koch will take the ball in the road trip finale tomorrow night and square off against San Antonio right-hander Burch Smith.
