FRESNO — Four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning helped the host Fresno Grizzlies get enough for a 5-2 victory over the Sacramento River Cats at Chukchansi Park on Monday.
With the Cats (35-23) down 1-0, left fielder Nick Buss tied the score in the top of the fifth, as his single plated Jose Martinez from second base. Buss finished 2-for-4 with a walk.
The game was tied until the seventh when the Grizzlies (30-29) got RBI singles from Juan Ciriaco, Trevor Brown and Mark Minicozzi to go up 5-1.
Sacramento cut into the lead in the eighth, on Shane Peterson’s RBI groundout, but that was all it would get.
The teams were scheduled to be right back on the field Tuesday at 11:05 a.m. Righty Dan Straily (2-0, 4.01 ERA) will take the bump for the River Cats against Fresno’s Jason Berken (7-3, 4.24 ERA).
