After six innings, storms blanketed the area, forcing Thursday’s series opener to be called an official game and an Aces victory.
Enright (2-1) managed to lower his season ERA to 1.75 after a dominant 81-pitch performance. He out-dueled Salt Lake’s Garrett Richards (3-1), who surrendered four runs on eight hits over 3 2-3 innings of work.
The Aces pushed across a run in the first inning on a two-out, RBI single off the bat of Josh Bell, and Reno never trailed. Randy Ruiz added a solo home run in the third, and run-scoring hits for Ruiz and Bell in the fourth gave the Aces a commanding 4-0 lead.
Ruiz finished with three hits on the night, while Bell and Cole Gillespie added two hits apiece. Jake Elmore drew three walks, stretching his on-base streak to 16 games.
The Aces and Bees will match up again on Friday night. Right-hander Chris Jakubauskas (1-3, 5.01 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while RHP Matt Shoemaker (2-0, 4.01 ERA) counters for Salt Lake. First pitch is set for 5:35 p.m. PT, and the action can be heard live on Fox Sports 630 AM.
The Aces return to Reno for an eight-game homestand beginning April 30. Tickets are on sale now at RenoAces.com, by calling (775) 334-7000 or by visiting the Aces Ballpark Ticket Office.
