COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—Daniel Cabrera and Seth Etherton combined to hold the high-powered Sky Sox offense to just three runs on Sunday afternoon, as the Reno Aces topped Colorado Springs 6-3 at Security Service Field.
Cabrera scattered two runs on five hits over the game’s first four innings, before Etherton (10-7) came on to hold the Sky Sox to just a run over the final five frames.
The Aces jumped out to an early lead and would never trail. Eric Byrnes, playing with Reno on a Major League Rehabilitation Assignment, led-off Sunday’s game with a home run to put the Aces ahead quickly, 1-0. Reno added one more in the first, then a three-run third inning gave the Aces plenty of cushion.
Luke Carlin finished with three hits, extending his hitting streak to a career-best 11 games. Agustin Murillo kicked-in a hit and two RBIs, while Ed Rogers recorded two hits on the day.
The loss fell to Sky Sox starter Jhoulys Chacin (1-1), who surrendered five runs on three hits and five walks over 2.0 innings of work.
The series continues on Monday night from Security Service Field. RHP Hector Ambriz (6-9, 6.01 ERA) gets the nod for Reno, while the Sky Sox counter with RHP Brandon Hynick (10-7, 3.59 ERA). First pitch is set for 5:05 p.m. PT and the action can be heard live on Fox Sports Radio 1450 AM.
