River Cats glance: Cats can’t complete sweep of Aces

Published: Sunday, Jul. 13, 2014 - 9:46 pm

• Highlight: Charlie Brewer threw six scoreless innings and Garrett Weber and Alfredo Marte drove in runs as the Reno Aces avoided a three-game sweep by beating the River Cats 2-1 Sunday afternoon at Raley Field.

• Early exit: Reno manager Phil Nevin was ejected in the first inning for arguing an interference call. River Cats first baseman Anthony Aliotti made a diving stop on Roger Kieschnick’s grounder and threw high to pitcher Zach Neal covering first. When the ball fell to the ground, Kieschnick kicked the ball and was called out.

• Smyth shines: River Cats reliever Paul Smyth (5-2, 2.95 ERA), a Pacific Coast League All-Star, had an impressive first season in the minors. In 2009, he pitched 361/3 innings in 25 games for Short Season-A Vancouver and Class-A Kane County, allowing 14 hits and no runs, striking out 44 and collecting 11 saves.

• Hitting the road: The River Cats embark on a 13-game trip to Albuquerque, El Paso and Tacoma after the All-Star break.
