Cats’ comeback falls just short

By From page B1 | May 21, 2014

WEST SACRAMENTO — Trailing by two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday, the Sacramento River Cats rallied to cut the deficit to one, but lost 3-2 to El Paso at Raley Field.

Cats right-hander Josh Lindblom returned from injury to toss five strong innings, striking out six Chihuahuas.

In fact, the bats for both clubs were silent through four frames, then Sacramento took a 1-0 lead on Tyler Ladendorf’s RBI single in the fifth inning. Ladendorf reached base three times in the game with two hits and a walk.

El Paso responded with three tallies in the top of the sixth, and the contest stayed 3-1 until the ninth.

In the bottom of the frame, River Cat left fielder Nick Buss reached on a bunt single and scored on Andy Parrino’s grounder, but that was all Sacramento would get.
