Cats clip Chihuahuas in slugfest

WEST SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento River Cats used a pair of four-run innings to beat El Paso, 10-8, on Thursday at Raley Field.

Sacramento (27-20) finished its 12-game homestand with a 10-2 record and is now a PCL-best 21-7 at home.

The onslaught started in the second inning when the Cats used five hits — including a double by right fielder Michael Taylor, a triple by second baseman Tyler Ladendorf and a two-run home run off the bat of third baseman Jose Martinez — to score four times.

The River Cats added a run in the third before veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur smashed a solo homer in the fourth inning to put the Chihuahuas (20-27) on the board.

Sacramento, however, put up four more runs in the bottom of the frame to go up 9-1. The second big inning was highlighted by a two-run triple by catcher Stephen Vogt, who then came home on an RBI double by first baseman Nate Freiman. He later scored on a single by center fielder Nick Buss.

River Cats starter Arnold Leon (4-1, 5.01 ERA) gave up only one run through the first five innings but was removed in the middle of the sixth after allowing four runs in the frame. Still, Leon earned his fourth win of the season by striking out five El Paso hitters.

Left fielder Alden Carrithers, who was ejected in the bottom of the sixth inning by home plate umpire Ramon DeJesus for arguing balls and strikes, exited after going 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI. Later in the frame, Vogt singled in shortstop Andy Parrino (who reached on a double) to put Sacramento up 10-5.

The Chihuahuas made things interesting by notching three runs in the eighth off of Cats reliever Evan Scribner to make it a 10-8 game. Right-hander Jeremy McBryde closed the door with a perfect inning for his first save of the season.

Vogt finished 3-for-4 with two runs, a walk, a triple and three RBIs, while Buss ended up 3-for-4 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base. Martinez’s home run was his third of the season.

Now, the River Cats head to Las Vegas for a four-game series at Cashman Field. Friday’s opener features Sacramento righty Marcus Walden (3-1, 4.57 ERA) taking on 51s right-hander Logan Verrett (2-2, 4.53 ERA) at 7:05 p.m.
