Game Suspended Due to Curfew

By Reno Aces | April 15, 2019 8:18 PM

Reno, Nevada -  Due to Pacific Coast League travel rules, today's game between the Reno Aces and El Paso Chihuahuas was suspended and scheduled for completion July 15. Prior to the curfew, Reno and El Paso were locked in an extra-inning contest tied at five. With two on, down by three runs in the bottom of the 9th inning, Kevin Cron stepped to the plate. Cron was ready for this situation. The 2018 All-Pacific Coast League selection belted a three-run homer to tie things up. Unfortunately for Reno, the Aces couldn't string together enough hits to finish things off in the bottom of the 10th as time expired.

Taylor Widener made the start for Chris Cron this afternoon. Widener went five innings, allowed three runs on three hits and struck out six. Cron led the charge offensively, finishing 2-for-5 with three RBI and a home run. Relief pitcher Robby Scott worked out of the Minor League Baseball extra-inning rule that begins with a runner on second. Scott tossed an inning of scoreless-hitless ball. Reno will head to Albuquerque tomorrow and take on the Isotopes at 5:35 p.m.
