From the Notes

Silver State Rivalry: The Aces and 51s are meeting for their first of four series this season. Reno trails the all-time series by a 61-51 margin, and the teams are tied at 28 games apiece at Greater Nevada Field. Last season, the Aces took five of eight home games from Las Vegas, but were winless in eight contests at Cashman Field.

Pacific Southern: The current eight-game homestand features opponents from the Pacific Southern Division in Las Vegas and Salt Lake. The Aces have struggled against this division in 2016, in large part due to a 3-9 record against Albuquerque.

Difficulties at the Dish: Reno was limited to just three hits yesterday against Round Rock starter Nick Martinez, marking their fewest hits in a game this season. Over the four-game series in Texas, the Aces batted just .223 (31-for-139) with 13 runs scored. During the first half of the road trip at New Orleans, Reno batted .270 (38-for-141) with 24 runs scored.

By the Numbers – 1-for-10: The Aces managed just one hit in 10 at-bats with runners in scoring position on Saturday night. Reno is batting just .118 (2-for-17) with RISP in the first two games of this series.

Help Wanted: Braden Shipley went the distance on Saturday night, but took the loss as he received just three runs of support from his offense. In 10 starts this season, the Aces have given the former Nevada Wolf Pack star just 34 runs to work with (3.4 per game). Outside of an 11-run outburst on April 16 at El Paso, the right-hander is getting just 2.6 runs per game from Reno’s hitters.

Recovery Shake: After he hit .059 (1-for-17) during the four-game series at New Orleans, Mike Freeman is batting .600 (3-for-5) through two games in Round Rock.

From the Notes

By the Numbers – 1,451: Matt Capps’ save on Thursday night was his first in 1,451 days (3 years, 11 months, 21 days). The right-hander has 161 saves in his professional career, including 138 in the Major Leagues. Thursday marked his first career save in Triple-A.

Deep in the Heart of Texas: The Aces and Express play just one four-game series per season against each other since they are in different conferences. Reno trails the all-time series by a 15-13 margin, and the teams are tied 8-8 in Round Rock. The Aces won three out of four games on their last visit to Round Rock in 2014, marking their second series victory over the Express (also: 2009 in Reno, 3-1).

Shuffling the Deck: The Aces saw seven roster changes today. Silvino Bracho, Dominic Leone and Peter O’Brien were recalled by Arizona, with Cody Clark, Hector Hernandez and Matt McPhearson joining Reno from extended Spring Training. In addition, Josh Collmenter was reinstated by the D-backs from his rehab assignment. Reno has set franchise records for transactions in each of the last two seasons (2014 – 181, 2015, 182), and is on pace for 203 this year.

From the Notes

Triple-A Debut: Zack Godley will make his first Triple-A start tonight. He will become the fourth hurler to make their first Triple-A start for Reno this season, following Nick Baker, Braden Shipley and Tyler Wagner.

Six-Run Sixth: Reno broke out for six runs in the sixth inning last night after being no-hit for the first five frames. The six spot marked the Aces’ biggest output in one inning this season (previous: 5 runs, twice). Last season, the Aces put up six or more runs in an inning 10 times.

A Little Help from My Friends: Matt Buschmann earned his first win in seven starts for the Aces on Wednesday night. He worked five innings to match his shortest outing of the year, and allowed four or more runs for the third time this season. However, he received six runs of support after getting only 12 in his first six starts combined.

From the Notes

By the Numbers – 7: Last night marked the seventh start by an Aces pitcher this season where the starter lasted six-plus innings and did not allow a single run. The Aces are a perfect 7-0 in those contests this year. Last year, the Aces’ staff totaled seven such starts for the entire season and went 4-3 in those games.

A Perfect 10: Todd Glaesmann led off the game with a double last night and eventually added a grand slam and single, finishing 3-for-4 with four RBI and a walk. During his current 10-game hitting streak dating back to May 12, the outfielder is batting .364 (15-for-37) with one home run, three doubles, eight RBI, five runs scored, two walks, one stolen base and one hit-by-pitch. Glaesmann’s career-high hitting streak of 14 games stretched from June 2 to June 16 in 2012 while playing for Single-A Bowling Green.

First Time for Everything: For the first time in his 10-year career last night, Josh Collmenter struck out the side in exactly one inning of work. Of his 288 career appearances, 175 have come as a starter.

Bradley Wins PCL Weekly Honor: Reno righty Archie Bradley is the PCL Pitcher of the Week for May 16-22, as announced by the league office on Monday. The Aces hurler defeated Omaha on Saturday in his only appearance of the week, allowing three hits and three walks over eight shutout innings with nine strikeouts. The award marks the first PCL weekly accolade for Bradley and his fourth career weekly pitching award. He earned the Southern League honor twice and the California League distinction once during the 2013 season. In addition, this is the first time Reno has had two pitchers win the weekly league honor in a season (Braden Shipley, May 2). 

By the Numbers – 3: Archie Bradley’s PCL Pitcher of the Week award marks the Aces’ third league weekly accolade this season. Reno’s first PCL honor last year came on May 25.

Difficulties in the Big Easy: The Aces and Zephyrs play just one four-game series per season against each other since they are in different conferences. Reno leads the all-time series by a slim 14-13 margin, but the Aces are just 6-9 in New Orleans. The Aces have not won a series in Louisiana since sweeping a three-game set in 2010, going 3-9 in three trips since then.
