Late-inning comeback isn't enough for the Reno Aces

Late-inning comeback isn't enough for the Reno Aces

The Reno Aces attempted to mount a late-inning comeback Sunday afternoon at Greater Nevada Field but ultimately fell short. Memphis took advantage of a five-run seventh inning to secure a 7-4 victory and win game three of the four-game series. The Aces scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth and one in the 9th but couldn’t come up with the game-winning hit. The loss drops Reno to a record of 27-36 on the season with one game remaining this homestand. Braden Shipley got the start for manager Chris Cron this afternoon. Shipley gave the crowd of 4,643 a show. The right-hander turned in his best start of the season (6.0 IP, 2 R, 6 K, 1 BB) before handing it over to the bullpen. Bradin Hagens allowed five runs on five hits in the seventh inning and recorded one out. The Aces will look to split the series tomorrow night with left-hander Alex Young scheduled to start.
