RENO — Dayton High fought back from a 5-0 deficit to grab an 11-7 win over South Tahoe in a Northern Division I game at Aces Ballpark Tuesday afternoon.

“We really needed this one, and to get it at Aces Ballpark makes it that much more special. We’ve had this one circled on our calendar for a while being it was the first time there. I was happy for the kids that it was a positive experience, and we look forward to making it an annual game on the schedule for years to come.”

Reno bullpen stymies Fresno
FRESNO, Calif. — Riding a five-game losing streak entering Tuesday’s affair, the Reno Aces finally got over the hump — barely — by snapping their skid with a narrow 3-2 win against the Fresno Grizzlies at Chukchansi Park.
A two-out, two-run double by Trayvon Robinson in the fourth was enough for a wildly effective A.J. Schugel who set a career-high with six walks in five innings.
A shaky ninth by Jake Barrett overshadowed excellent work by the relief corps, but the 23-year-old managed to escape a bases-loaded jam for his fourth save.
The Aces (9-11) tacked on their final two runs on Robinson’s two-bagger in the fourth, proving to be the deciding blow.
The Aces have a travel day today before opening up a four-game set Thursday night at Las Vegas. Left-hander Vidal Nuño (2-1, 3.60) starts for the Aces against left-hander Steven Matz (2-1, 2.01). First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
