ROUND ROCK, Texas—The Reno Aces fell 4-3 to the Round Rock Express on Thursday night in the series finale at the Dell Diamond.

Ed Easley hit the first hit of the game for either team to open the third inning. Round Rock was the first club to jump on the board, with an RBI single in the fourth.

Reno pushed across two runs in the fifth, on a pair of sacrifice flies. The Aces had the tying run on base in the ninth, but the threat ended as Tony Campana grounded out to end the game.

At the dish for Reno, Taylor Harbin went 2-for-2, after entering the game as a pinch hitter.
