Round Rock drops fourth in a row in Reno


The Round Rock Express suffered their fourth straight loss as they fell 9-0 to the Reno Aces on the road on Tuesday night.

Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a triple and a home run on his way to three RBIs to lead the Aces.

Ildemaro Vargas had a double and added two RBIs for Reno.

Round Rock was held to just three hits on the night. Braden Shipley picked up the win as he struck out five through eight innings. Jake Barrett pitched a perfect inning to close out the game.

Brett Nicholas, Travis Snider and Luis Marte accounted for all of Round Rock’s hits. Nicholas had a double.

Eddie Gamboa gave up eight runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings to take the loss.

Reno scored in six different innings in the victory, including the fifth, when Hazelbaker hit a two-run home run and Vargas drew a bases-loaded walk.

Ketel Marte hit a solo home run in the first to get things started for Reno.

Reno added two more runs in the second on an RBI single by Ronnie Freeman and a run-scoring triple by Kristopher Negron.

Hazelbaker’s triple in the third drove in a run to make it 4-0.

A passed ball in the fourth continued the scoring streak for the Aces.

Vargas capped the scoring with an RBI double to score Negron in the eighth.

The Express were held scoreless for the third time this season, while the Aces recorded their first shutout of the year.

Round Rock will try to get back in the series on Wednesday at 8:35 p.m.
