Aces Beat Wolf Pack, Raise $15,000 for Nevada Baseball Program

By  | 

RENO, Nev.— For the fourth-straight season, the Reno Aces made a $15,000 donation to the Nevada Dugout Club during the annual exhibition Tuesday night between the Aces and Wolf Pack at Aces Ballpark.

Tyler Skaggs, ranked the No. 1 prospect in the D-backs organization by Baseball America, held the Wolf Pack to just one hit over the first four innings.

With Aces pitchers on the mound for both teams, Reno prevailed 11-6 in a contest that lasted eight-and-a-half innings. The game was played in traditional Spring Training format.

Now an annual tradition, a portion of the proceeds from the exhibition was donated to the Nevada Dugout Club, which benefits the Wolf Pack baseball program.

The Aces begin their defense of the Pacific Coast League Championship and Triple-A National Championship on Thursday, April 4 in Colorado Springs. Reno will host the Aces Ballpark home opener on Friday, April 12, with first pitch slated for 6:35 p.m. Discounted full and partial season tickets are on sale now. All ticket plans include tickets to the 2013 All-Star Game and Home Run Derby.
