Aces hold off Isotopes, take series finale

After a rain-out on Sunday, the Reno Aces were back at it Monday night in Albuquerque where they took the game and the series from the Isotopes.

Mike Bolsinger took the mound and went seven scoreless innings, allowing four hits, four strikeouts and one walk as Reno went on to win 1-0. Bolsinger has now gone 18.2 consecutive scoreless innings. Matt Stites came in for the start of the ninth and recorded his fifth save of the season as the Aces recorded their fourth shutout of the year.

The lone run came off a wild pitch in the third inning. Nick Ahmed got on base from a single to left and went to third from a Didi Gregorious single. The first pitch to the next batter, Roger Keisnick, got past catcher Griff Erickson, allowing Ahmed to score.

Gregorious had his 20th multi-hit game of the year, going 2-for-4. That put him in a three-way tie with Nick Evans and Mike Jacobs for the team lead.

The first two games of the series saw Reno winning 8-3 Friday night and Albuquerque taking Saturday’s game 3-2. Sunday’s rain-out has been rescheduled for a double-header on June 27.

The Aces returned home for a four-game series with the Fresno Grizzlies this week before traveling to Las Vegas for a four-game series with the first-place 51s.

During Wednesday’s home game with the Grizzlies, MiLB President and CEO will honor Reno’s Ahmed with the 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award. The award will recognize Ahmed’s work at shortstop for the Mobile BayBears last season. He will be presented with a trophy prior to the 1:05 p.m. scheduled start.
