The Reno Aces hit four home runs en route to a 7-4 victory over the Isotopes on Tuesday evening at Isotopes Park. The loss was Albuquerque's fifth in a row, falling under the .500 mark for the first time during the 2017 season.
Isotopes starter Zach Jemiola had a tough night in his second Triple-A outing. The 23-year-old allowed all four long balls to Reno, eventually surrendering seven runs on seven hits to the Aces over 5.2 innings on the mound.
Albuquerque pitchers Sam Moll , Shane Carle and C.C. Lee each registered a scoreless outing out of the bullpen in relief of Jemiola.
After scoring a combined seven runs over their last four games, the Isotopes bats showed signs of coming to life in the loss. Albuquerque crossed the plate four times on the evening with Ryan Hanigan , Chris Denorfia , Derrik Gibson and Daniel Castro each knocking in a run.
The Isotopes continue their homestand tomorrow evening with game two of their four-game set with the Reno Aces. Isotopes southpaw Harrison Musgrave (0-0, 5.19) gets the nod for Glenallen Hill's squad. He will be opposed by Reno's righty Zach Godley (0-1, 4.22). First pitch from Isotopes Park is set for 6:35 p.m.
