Aces Tie Monthly Record for Wins

The Reno Aces earned an 8-3 victory over the Tacoma Rainiers Thursday night, matching a club record for wins in a single month and adding to their club record for runs scored in a month. It is their fourth consecutive win.

Reno scored in each of the game's first three innings to hop out to an early 4-0 advantage. With the lead later trimmed to one, Reno pushed across four runs in the seventh inning to put the game out of reach.

With the victory, the first-place Aces seal a series victory and their 13th-straight win over the Rainiers. Reno finishes the month of May with a 20-10 record, tying a franchise mark for wins in a month.  Their 222 runs scored in May shatters their previous monthly record.

Patrick Corbin (1-1) earned the victory in his Aces Ballpark debut, scattering three runs on seven hits over six innings of work. The triumvirate of Mike DeMark, Jensen Lewis, and Bryan Woodall held the Rainiers scoreless over the game's final three frames out of the Reno bullpen.

Jake Elmore finished his day 1-for-5, bringing his batting average to an even .400. Elmore becomes just the fifth Pacific Coast League batter since 2005 to enter the month of June with a .400 batting average. Four Aces registered a multi-hit effort, and the club recorded five doubles. Reno now has doubled in a franchise record 37-straight games.

Three Aces

  • Adam Eaton collected two of those five doubles.  His 16 two-baggers trails the PCL leader by only four despite the fact that Eaton spent the first two weeks of the season with Mobile.
  • Elmore and Eaton rank 1-2 in the league in both batting average and on-base percentage
  • Lewis' ERA dropped to 1.04.  He allowed just two hits and no runs in the month of May
