Reno 6, River Cats 5
After slugging a season-high five home runs on Sunday, the Sacramento River Cats (20-26) allowed four homers in a loss to the first place Reno Aces (30-17) on Monday.
One mistake was enough to hand righty Matt Frisbee (1-3) the loss. With one out and one on in the first inning, Frisbee served up a two-run shot to rehabbing Arizona outfielder Kole Calhoun. Frisbee was able to buckle down and provide his best outing for Sacramento, throwing five innings with just the two earned runs, three hits, and one strikeout.
Four runs off Sacramento lefty reliever Conner Menez in the sixth inning, three coming via back-to-back-to-back home runs by Ildemaro Vargas, Calhoun, and Drew Ellis, broke things open and put Reno up 6-0.
Second baseman Jason Vosler was a bright spot offensively, going 4-5 with his sixth inning opposite-field two-run home run and eighth inning double providing three of Sacramento’s five runs.
Sacramento put the tying run on third, and the winning run on first for center fielder Jaylin Davis. Reno closer Miguel Aguilar was able to find the last out, however, striking out Davis to end the game.
