Parra Leads Aces to 11-Inning Win

Gerardo Parra collected three hits and scored the winning run in the 11th inning as the Reno Aces defeated the Omaha Royals 4-3 Thursday night. Parra is now 11-for-21 (.524) with six runs scored, four RBI, and three stolen bases since being sent down to Reno.

Gerardo Parra had another three-hit night, and Yunesky Sanchez gave the Reno Aces a walk-off victory with a two-out RBI-single in the eleventh, as Reno knocked off Omaha for the second-straight game Thursday night at Aces Ballpark.

The Aces trailed 3-0 in the seventh, but chipped away in the late innings to send the game into extras. Ryan Roberts got the Aces on the board with an RBI-single in the seventh, and an Ed Rogers' run-scoring fielder's choice cut the lead to 3-2. In the eighth, Mark Hallberg scored the tying run on an error after a Pedro Ciriaco double, before Sanchez completed the comeback with his second walk-off single of the season, a ground ball base hit just past the third baseman.

Kevin Mulvey started and tossed seven innings for Reno, allowing just three earned runs on five hits. Daniel Stange (4-1) earned the win in relief in his first appearance for Reno since being optioned back to the Aces on Wednesday.

Omaha starter Anthony Lerew also got a no-decision, hurling 6.1 innings and holding the Aces to just two earned runs. Victor Marte (2-1) took the loss for the O-Royals after allowing Sanchez's walk-off hit in the 11th.

Parra led the Aces with another three-hit night, his third in five games with the Aces. He is now 11-for-21 (.524) in five games with the Aces. Reno's defense helped out by turning three double plays on the evening. While Rogers made two errors, they did not lead to any unearned runs scoring.
