Braden Shipley was sharp on the mound from start to finish. The Nevada righty went four innings, did not allow a hit and stuck out three. The Reno pitching staff took a no-hitter into the sixth. Bryan Menendez allowed an RBI single to Bees slugger Caleb Cowart with two outs that tied the game at one.
Chris Cron’s offense responded with four runs in the seventh, one run in the eighth and one run in the ninth to extend their lead to six. Lucas Luetge came on in the bottom of the 9th and recorded the final three outs of the season.
The win gave Reno a final record of 66-74 as they missed out in the playoffs. Sacramento won the division with a record of 73-67.
Reno has won the final regular-season game of the season in 10 of their 11 seasons as a franchise.
