RIVER CATS 15, ACES 11

The Reno Aces attempted a late-inning comeback, but the squad fell 15-11 to the Sacramento River Cats on Saturday night at Aces Ballpark.

Reno scored six runs in the bottom of the seventh, due in part to a Tuffy Gosewisch homer, to bring the club within two, down 12-10. A solo homer by Didi Gregorius, on a Major League Rehabilitation Assignment with Reno, brought the club within one. Gregorius went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored as the designated hitter.

Chris Owings, ranked the No. 6 prospect in the D-backs organization by Baseball America, went 3-for-5 on the night with two runs scored.

Aces LHP Tyler Skaggs, who was charged with the loss, was roughed up in his 2013 home debut. He gave up nine earned runs on eight hits through 2.1 innings. Skaggs struck out three and walked three.

RHP Sonny Gray earned his first win of the season for the River Cats. He gave up four runs-three earned-on seven hits through 5.0 innings pitched. Gray struck out five and walked three batters.

RIVER CATS 16, ACES 8

The Reno Aces fell 16-8 to the Sacramento River Cats in front of a sell-out crowd on Friday night, marking the first home opener the Aces have lost in franchise history.

Cody Ross, who joined the Aces tonight as part of his Major League Rehabilitation Assignment, went 2-for-3 at the plate with two RBI and a run scored.

Both squads put up two runs in the first frame, before the River Cats broke away with the lead. A three-run third inning, a six-run fourth and a five run fifth boosted Sacramento to a 16-4 lead in the top of the fourth. Fueled by homers from Grant Green, Michael Taylor and Stephen Vogt, Sacramento’s momentum stopped there.

Aces relievers Eury De La Rosa and Will Harris did not give up a hit through the last four innings of the game, and struck out a pair of batters each.

RHP Charles Brewer was charged with the loss for the Aces in his second start of the season. Brewer gave up seven runs-six earned-on six hits through 3.1 innings pitched.
