Omaha’s repeat bid comes up short against Reno

The Reno Aces clinched the 2012 Pacific Coast League Championship with an 8-2 victory over the Omaha Storm Chasers at Werner Park.  Doug Davis (0-1) was hit with the loss after allowing three runs, two earned, over seven hits in 4.1 innings pitched as the Storm Chasers were looking to repeat as PCL champs. Adam Moore drove in both of Omaha’s runs with his two-run single in the seventh inning.

In the fourth, Reno scored when Irving Falu and Anthony Seratelli each had a throwing error on the same play to score the Aces’ Taylor Harbin. Reno extended their lead to 3-0 in the fifth when Harbin singled in a run. Michael Mariot threw a wild pitch that scored Tyler Bortnick.

Mariot pitched to two batters in the sixth and gave up a triple and an RBI double to Tyler Kuhn. Brandon Sisk then gave up a sacrifice fly to Mike Jacobs.

In the home half of the seventh, a Clint Robinson single was followed up by a Rey Navarro double, to set up Moore for his two-run single.  Reno scored three runs in the eighth off of Donnie Joseph, who worked through a third of an inning, to put the Storm Chasers in an 8-2 hole.
