Game 1 Summary: The Oklahoma City Dodgers suffered their first shutout loss since the start of the 2021 season in Game 1 of a doubleheader Thursday evening as the Reno Aces sent the Dodgers to a 9-0 defeat at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Oklahoma City tied their season-low mark on offense with three hits in the game. Reno took the game’s first lead with a two-run homer by Dominic Canzone in the second inning and extended to a 3-0 advantage on a solo homer by Seth Beer in the third inning. The Dodgers loaded the bases in the fourth inning, but Reno pitcher Tommy Henry escaped the jam with a strikeout. With two out in the sixth inning, a triple followed by a RBI single gave Reno a 4-0 lead. The Aces then tacked on five additional runs in the top of the seventh inning on a RBI single, a two-run double and two bases-loaded walks.

Game 2 Summary: Thursday’s Game 2 extended into extra innings with Reno’s Stone Garrett hitting a two-run homer in the top of the eighth inning to break a tie on the way to Reno completing a doubleheader sweep with a 4-2 win against the Oklahoma City Dodgers at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The Aces (24-21) took the first lead of Game 2 by scoring a run on an OKC fielding error in the third inning. The Dodgers (27-18) picked up their lone runs of the doubleheader in the fourth inning. Jake Lamb drew a one-out walk and scored on a RBI triple by Eddy Alvarez. Ryan Noda followed and lined the next pitch into center field for a RBI double and 2-1 OKC lead. Reno later knotted the game at 2-2 with a two-out RBI double in the fifth inning. With an automatic runner on second base at the start of the eighth inning, Garrett led off with a homer out to center field. The Dodgers had two men on base with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning via the automatic runner and a walk, but were unable to bring in a run.
