Sacramento, CA - Reno closed out the three-game series with a 5-4 victory on Thursday night in Sacramento. Troy Scribner made his Aces debut and first appearance as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks (4.0 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 4 K). Scribner was claimed from the Los Angeles Angels on April 6 and was named a Pacific Coast League All-Star in 2017 with the Salt Lake Bees.
Offensively, Yasmany Tomas set the tone early in the ballgame. Tomas hit a two-run double in the top of the first inning, scoring Jack Reinheimer and Cesar Puello. Michael Perez followed with a sharp single into the outfield and gave Reno an early 3-0 lead. Both sides exchanged blows throughout the remainder of the game, but ultimately Reno prevailed.
