From the Notes

Four Straight: The Aces have reeled off four straight wins for the first time since July 9-12 when they won their final four games of the first half over the Tacoma Rainiers at Aces Ballpark.

RBI Guys: O’Brien leads the Aces with 96 RBI, second-most in the PCL behind Fresno’s Matt Duffy who has 101. Romak is third with 95, and Nick Evans ranks fourth with 88 RBI. O’Brien and Romak are on the heels of the Aces’ single-season franchise record 97, set last year by Mike Jacobs.

By the Numbers – 6 1/3: Right-hander R.J. Hively threw a career-high 6 1/3 innings in last night’s 8-2 win over Memphis. He had thrown six innings three separate times this season, most recently on July 28 while pitching for Advanced-A Visalia.

From the Notes

Glaes-ing the Ball: Aces OF Todd Glaesmann is riding a nine-game hitting streak in which he’s hit .469 (15-for-32) with 7 RBI, 8 runs scored, 7 doubles, 1 triple and 2 home runs. The nine-game streak is the longest of the season for Glaesmann, but it’s still short of a career-best 14-game streak he set from June 2-16, 2012 while playing for Low-A Bowling Green.

Double Machines: Jamie Romak and Nick Evans lead the Aces with 38 and 35 doubles, respectively. Romak’s 38 is currently fourth-most for a single season in Aces history, while Evans’ 35 is tied for sixth-most. Romak is also tied for second in the PCL with Nashville’s Joey Wendle, and the duo trails only Salt Lake’s Kyle Kubitza who has 41.

O’Brien has POP: After a lengthy slump from June and into early July, Peter O’Brien has turned it on since July 21. In his last 31 games, O’Brien is hitting .339 (39-for-113) with 33 RBI, 25 runs scored, 9 home runs, 5 triples and 6 doubles.

A Streaker at Aces Ballpark: Aces infielder Brandon Drury has a 24-game hitting streak at Aces Ballpark. In the 24-game stretch, he’s hitting .370 (37-for-100) with 21 runs scored, 13 RBI, 12 doubles, 1 home run and 6 walks.

From the Notes

Simmons Sizzling: Aces reliever Seth Simmons is having a very productive month of August. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound right-hander has posted a 0.60 ERA (1 ER in 15 IP), spanning ten appearances. His scoreless streak is currently at 10 1/3 innings.

Doubles = Dubyas: The Aces have totaled 16 doubles over their past two games, the most in a two-game span in franchise history. Todd Glaesmann has led the barrage, clubbing four of his own, including a franchise-record-tying three in the finale vs. Nashville. To no surprise, the Aces have won each of their last two games.

From the Notes

RBI Guys: O’Brien and Romak both have 93 RBI, tied for second-most in the PCL, trailing only Fresno’s Matt Duffy who has 99. Nick Evans ranks right behind O’Brien and Romak as well with 84 RBI. O’Brien and Romak currently are tied for second in Aces single-season history for RBI, trailing only Mike Jacobs’ total of 97 from last year.

Walk This Way: One key to Reno’s four-game set with Memphis will be the amount of walks both drawn and given. The Aces’ pitching staff has walked a league-worst 499 batters, while Memphis’ has walked the fewest at just 325. Offensively, Memphis has drawn 550 walks, good for second-most in the PCL (Fresno, 554). The Aces have walked 412 times, sixth-most in the league.

First-Rounders: Both scheduled starters — Reno’s Aaron Blair and Memphis’ Marco Gonzales — were selected in the first round of the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft. Gonzales was selected 19th overall out of the Gonzaga University while Blair was a compensation pick, taken 37th overall out of Marshall University.

From the Notes

By the Numbers – .311+: The Aces’ lineup will be a daunting one for Nashville left-hander Sean Nolin tonight. Reno’s No. 1-6 batters are all hitting .311 or better against southpaws this season, this list including: Nick Buss (.319), Danny Worth (.311), Nick Evans (.338), Jamie Romak (.331), Brandon Drury (.371) and Peter O’Brien (.329).

Turning Two: The Aces have turned 142 double plays as a team which ranks as the third-most in the Pacific Coast League, trailing only Memphis (147) and Oklahoma City (143). Meanwhile, Nashville has rolled 112 double plays which ranks No. 12 in the PCL.

Ejections Reflections: Aces skipper Phil Nevin was tossed for the fifth time this season in last night’s 7-4 loss. Coinciden­tally, the Aces are winless (0-5) in the games Nevin has been ejected. Peter O’Brien (5/10 @ SL), Cody Ransom (5/18 vs. SL), Gabriel Arias (5/30 vs. NEW) and Nick Evans (7/11 vs. TAC) are the only four Aces players to be tossed this year.

From the Notes

Schugel Starts: RHP A.J. Schugel’s results have been much better over his last two starts. In his last outing, he gave up two runs – one earned – on five hits over six innings in Oklahoma City. It was his first win with the Aces since April 28 at Fresno, snapping a personal four-game skid with Reno. The six-inning performance was also his first quality start with Reno. Over his last two outings combined, he’s 1-1 with a 2.00 ERA (2 ER in 9 IP). He took a tough-luck loss at Colorado Springs on August 15 when his start was cut short due to a lengthy rain delay. He threw three innings of one-run, one-hit ball in the loss.

Fleck Firing: Aces reliever Kaleb Fleck has lowered his ERA from 3.93 to 2.83 over his last nine appearances. He’s allowed just one unearned run since August 2, spanning 13 1/3 innings. He’s allowed nine hits (8 singles, 1 double) and four walks (2 intentional) while striking out an impressive 20 batters during the stretch.

Hardened Clay: Last night’s starter, Caleb Clay, picked up his first win in nearly a month. It was his team-leading eighth win, despite walking three and striking out none for the second consecutive start. Prior to last night, Clay’s previous two outings were less-than-stellar, both three-inning performances in which he allowed a combined 14 runs – 11 earned – on 15 hits.

From the Notes

Total Bases Race: Reno’s Jamie Romak (235) and Peter O’Brien (229) sit No. 1 and No. 2 in the PCL for total bases. Nashville’s Joey Wendle (223, 3rd) and Joey Wendle (222, T-4th) are next in line, while Reno’s Nick Evans (220, T-6th) isn’t far behind.

Sounding Off: The Aces’ struggles against Nashville continued last night. With the 8-4 loss, the Aces have now lost seven straight games against Nashville in the all-time series. Reno is also just 3-14 against Nashville since the 2011 season.

1,000 Knocks: Aces 1B/LF Danny Dorn collected two hits last night, giving him 1,000 career hits. He currently has 995 in the minor leagues and 5 in the big leagues with the D-backs this year.

700 Hits: Aces utility infielder Brandon Drury hit an RBI single in the ninth last night, giving him 700 career hits. Last year in 136 games between Advanced-A Visalia and Double-A Mobile, Drury collected a single-season best 160 hits, narrowly eclipsing the 159 he had at Low-A South Bend in 2013. He has 149 hits, including 37 doubles this season, both tied for seventh-most in all of MiLB.

Double Machines: Jamie Romak and Nick Evans lead the Aces with 36 and 33 doubles, respectively. Romak’s 36 is currently fifth-most for a single season in Aces history, while Evans’ 33 is tied for seventh-most. Romak also sits tied for second-most in the PCL with Nashville’s Joey Wendle, trailing only Salt Lake’s Kyle Kubitza who has 41.

From the Notes

Familar Faces: The Aces met up with Sacramento — last year’s Triple-A affiliate of the A’s — ten times from August 7 onward. From August 7-11, the River Cats took three of five games from the Aces, but Reno retaliated in Sacramento from August 28-September 1, winning four of five to clinch the Pacific Northern Division on the final day of the regular season.

Streak Snapped: Reno’s loss yesterday snapped a string of eight straight wins in which Aaron Blair made a start. During the eight-start stretch, Blair went 6-0 with a 2.16 ERA (12 ER in 50 IP).

RBI History: Three Reno Aces are climbing the ranks for season-single RBI leaders. Mike Jacobs is the franchise leader with 97 RBI in 2014 and with his two RBI yesterday, Jamie Romak is now tied with Cody Ransom (2011) for second-most all-time at 92 RBI. Peter O’Brien (88) is fifth, and Nick Evans (82) is seventh for their current RBI totals in 2015.

From the Notes

Can’t Stop Pete: Peter O’Brien recorded another multi-hit game last night, going 2-for-4 with 3 RBI after going 4-for-5 while falling a homer shy of the cycle Wednesday night. He’s racked up multi-hit performances in four of his last five games and five of his last eight overall. He is batting .667 (8-for-12) with 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 2 doubles and 1 triple in the first three games of the series against Salt Lake.

A Streaker at Aces Ballpark: Aces infielder Brandon Drury has a 17-game hitting streak at Aces Ballpark. In the 17-game stretch, he’s hitting .397 (28-for-73) with 15 runs scored, 9 RBI, 10 doubles, 1 home run and 4 walks.

Evans In the Zone: Nick Evans has now hit safely in each of his last 15 games, a stretch in which he’s posted a .393 (24-for-61) average. His 15-game streak matches former Ace Garrett Weber’s team-high 15-gamer set earlier this season from April 27-May 13. Evans is just four games shy of matching his career-high hitting streak of 19 games set with Triple-A Buffalo in 2011.
