METAIRIE, La. — Kevin Mulvey delivered a quality start for Reno Monday night, but the Aces offense failed to back up his effort, as the New Orleans Zephyrs topped Reno, 3-1, in the series finale at Zephyr Field.

One night after being held to no runs on three hits, the Aces were limited to one run on four hits Monday night, dropping their second-straight game. Zephyrs starter Elih Villanueva (6-10) earned the victory after holding the Aces to a run over 8.2 innings of work, walking one and striking out five. Victor Garate induced a game-ending Lucas May strikeout for his first save of the season.

Mulvey (3-7) took the hard-luck loss, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings of work. The Aces right-hander walked one and struck out one. Out of the Reno bullpen, Kam Mickolio worked a scoreless seventh, and Ryan Cook completed a scoreless eighth.

At the plate for Reno, Evan Frey put the Aces on the scoreboard with a solo home run to lead-off the ninth inning, cutting the deficit to 3-1. Singles for Mark Hallberg, Angel Berroa and Andy Tracy accounted for the rest of the Aces’ offense on the night.

Reno now kicks off a four-game series with the Oklahoma City RedHawks. In today’s opener, LHP Zach Kroenke (8-2, 6.36 ERA) toes the slab for Reno, while the RedHawks will counter with LHP J.A. Happ (0-0, 0.00 ERA).  First pitch from RedHawks Field at Bricktown is set for 5:05 p.m. PT, and all the action can be heard live on Fox Sports 630 AM or by visiting

The Aces return home on Saturday for a four-game series against Tacoma at Aces Ballpark.
