Reno 11, River Cats 8
Tuesday’s series finale felt more like a home run derby, as the Sacramento River Cats (20-27) fell to the first place Reno Aces (31-17) in a back-and-forth slugfest which saw 10 home runs.
The first 18 runs of the ballgame were scored via the home run, with each team swatting five. Reno third baseman Drew Ellis and left fielder Stuart Fairchild combined for nine RBIs with two home runs each. All three Sacramento outfielders, left fielder Bryce Johnson, right fielder Braden Bishop, and center fielder Jaylin Davis, as well as shortstop Arismendy Alcántara and pinch-hitter Peter Maris, went yard.
Down 4-2 in the fourth with a runner on for Sacramento, Maris ignited a five-run onslaught with a pinch-hit, two-run home run. Five batters later, Davis launched a go-ahead three-run shot to left field, his seventh home run in 14 rehab games.
After Ellis hit a game-tying three-run home run to make it 7-7, Alcántara regained the lead for Sacramento with his own home run. Following Alcántara’s shot, Fairchild took right-hander Yunior Marte (0-1) deep for the final lead change of the day.
Following the day off, right-hander Gerson Garabito (0-2, 3.09) will start Thursday’s series-opener at the Las Vegas Aviators. He’ll be opposed by righty Paul Blackburn (2-2, 4.56). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (PT). Listen to Johnny Doskow call the game online at rivercats.com or on the MiLB First Pitch app.
