Baseball: Albuquerque at Los Corazones de Reno (Aces)
June 20, 2019 @ 7:05 pm - 10:05 pm
The Reno Aces return to Greater Nevada Field for the first time since June 10th. Following a difficult road trip in Texas that dealt the Aces six losses, Reno will take on the last-place Albuquerque Isotopes in a five-game series. Albuquerque is 5-6 against the Biggest Little ball club this season and is 13.5 games out of first place in the Pacific Southern Division. Right-hander Taylor Widener will take the hill for Chris Cron tonight coming off the best Triple-A start of his career. Widener went six innings against Round Rock on Friday night and struck out a season-high nine.
As part of Minor League Baseball’s initiative celebrating Hispanic heritage and culture, the Reno Aces will play as Los Corazones de Reno tonight against the Mariachis de Nuevo México. Los Corazones de Reno is one of 72 teams across Minor League Baseball competing for the “Copa de la Diversión” or “Fun Cup.” 118 days this season will have at least one (1) Copa game (78.2% coverage all season) across Minor League Baseball and 402 Copa games are scheduled among the 72 clubs. By playing as Los Corazones de Reno, we pair the love of our community and within the Latino culture with fire for passion, chili peppers representative of the connection between food and family, and baseball, the key object in a game of passion that brings people together.
The milagro heart at the center symbolizes love, while “milagro” means “miracle” and can bring good luck to its wearer. By taking the field as Los Corazones de Reno, the club is pairing its love for the community with the passion of baseball within Latino culture. The chili peppers represent this connection, as well as the one between food, family and baseball.
