Baseball roundup: River Cats clobber Grizzlies in Fresno

By
From page B12 | June 01, 2014 |

FRESNO — The Sacramento River Cats scored in six different innings on Thursday and powered past the homestanding Fresno Grizzlies, 12-3 at Chukchansi Park.

The Cats took a 9-2 lead after four innings and never looked back to improve to 35-21 on the season.

Sacramento blasted three home runs in the win, one each from Stephen Vogt, Michael Taylor and Daric Barton. Vogt, whose dinger was a three-run shot, added a double and scored three times, as did Andy Parrino, who went 3-for-5 with an RBI.

Taylor’s home run was his fifth of the season.

Cespedes carries A’s over Angels

OAKLAND — Yoenis Cespedes finished a single shy of the cycle and threw out two runners at the plate, powering the Oakland Athletics past the Los Angeles Angels, 11-3, on Saturday night.

Cespedes doubled in the fourth, hit a two-run triple in the seventh and a three-run homer in the eighth. He matched a career-high with five RBIs to help Oakland stretch its lead to 3 1/2 games over the Angels in the AL West.

The A’s tagged Tyler Skaggs (4-3) with four runs and five hits in six-plus innings.

Cardinals blank visiting San Francisco

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Bruce Bochy had plenty of time to ponder this loss. Before two rain delays and after them, too, the San Francisco Giants offense came up empty.

“We just got shut down,” the manager said after a 2-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday that would have lasted a snappy 2 hours, 29 minutes without delays of 47 and 51 minutes. “Our guy did a good job, we just didn’t do anything offensively.”

Michael Wacha worked six innings of three-hit ball in his fifth rain-delayed start of the season and Oscar Taveras homered in his second career at-bat for the Cardinals. The Giants were held to three hits by Wacha and three relievers and were shut out for the fourth time of the season, ending a string of six straight games scoring four or more runs.

Yusmeiro Petit (3-3) gave up two hits in six innings, but one of them was Taveras’ 418-foot drive in the fifth. Petit subbed for injured Matt Cain, placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury, for the second straight start.
