Fresno, CA - The Reno Aces dropped their sixth consecutive game to the Fresno Grizzlies Sunday afternoon, by a score of 5-0. Despite a fantastic start by Nevada alum Braden Shipley. The right-hander went 6.0 innings and allowed no runs on three hits. Reno was held in check offensively, tallying just one hit by Jack Reinheimer in the 4th inning.
Fresno starter Kent Emanuel was terrific, allowing one hit in six innings of work. The Grizzlies got to the Aces bullpen for the second day in a row, tagging right-handed Joey Krehbiel for four runs in a third of an inning. Reno is 0-5 in day games this season and 4-7 overall. Taylor Clarke will get the nod for Greg Gross in the final game of the road trip tomorrow.
