FRESNO — Scott Moore’s three-hit, five-RBI night was more than enough offense for Sacramento, as the River Cats took down the Fresno Grizzlies, 10-2, on Tuesday night at Chukchansi Park.
Fresno jumped out to an early 2-1 lead against Sacramento starter Jesse Chavez, but the Cats would score the game’s final nine runs to even the four-game set at 1-1. Moore — who came into Tuesday’s game with just eight RBIs on the season — exploded for a single, two doubles and five runs batted in, accounting for half of the River Cats’ offense in the rout. Daric Barton and Stephen Vogt homered for the Cats, providing plenty of support for Chavez (2-1), recently optioned by Oakland after appearing in three games with the big club.
The series continues Wednesday with right-hander Sonny Gray (2-1, 3.27 ERA) meeting Fresno righty Chris Heston (2-1, 6.58 ERA) at 7:05 p.m.
