By From page B1 | July 11, 2014

FRESNO — In the final meeting of the season between rivals Sacramento and Fresno on Thursday, the Grizzlies edged the River Cats, 3-2, at Chukchansi Park.

Fresno (46-49) got home runs from Jesuit graduate Andre Susac and first baseman Adam Duvall, who had a big night, finishing 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored. Duvall’s dinger was his minor-league baseball leading 26th of the season.

The Cats (54-40) were limited to Kenny Wilson’s two-run homer in the top of the fifth. Wilson is now batting .333 in two games with Sacramento.

After that, the River Cats rallied a few times, but could not find the tying run to prevent starter Arnold Leon (4.47) from falling to 9-3. Leon had a career and Cats season best of 13 strikeouts.

Earning the win for the Grizzlies was lefty Jose De Paula (3-3, 4.15 ERA) who went five innings and struck out seven.

Even with the loss, Sacramento finished the season at 9-7 against Fresno.

The Cats are back at Raley Field Friday night to face Reno at 7:05 p.m.
