RENO, Nev. (Reno Aces) - Runs were at a premium for the Reno Aces (39-36), who fell to the Sacramento River Cats (32-43), 6-1, in front of 5,079 fans Thursday night at Greater Nevada Field.

Trailing 1-0 in the third inning, Dominic Fletcher evened the score for the Aces with an RBI single to left. But that was the only offensive production by Reno’s bats for the rest of the night.

Tyler Gilbert was charged with the loss after allowing three earned runs on six hits and struck out two batters.

Cooper Hummel (1-for-3, R, BB) extended his hitting streak to nine games, the longest active streak for any Reno hitter.
