Aces unable to produce winning rally vs. Bees’ bullpen

RENO – Cole Gillespie went 2 for 3 with a triple and a single, but the Aces couldn’t mount a rally against the Bees’ bullpen in a 6-4 loss to Salt Lake on Tuesday night at Aces Ballpark.

Trailing 5-2 in the sixth inning, Reno put together a rally that started with three straight walks but mustered just a pair of sacrifice flies in the inning to cut the deficit to 5-4. Salt Lake added an insurance run in the seventh, and that was all the Bees’ bullpen needed, as three Salt Lake relievers held the Aces hitless through the final 3 2/3 innings of the game.

Kevin Mulvey started for Reno, tossing three innings and allowing just two runs (one earned), and Jose Marte (0-1) took the loss after surrendering three earned runs in two innings of relief.

Trevor Reckling (1-0) started and earned the win for Salt Lake. Rafael Rodriguez threw a perfect ninth inning to earn his second save of the season.

Reno and Salt Lake continue the series Wednesday afternoon, with RHP Cesar Valdez (0-0, 0.00 ERA) set to face Salt Lake RHP Sean O’Sullivan (0-1, 9.00 ERA). First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. at Aces Ballpark.
