Pro baseball briefs: River Cats lose despite hitting homers

From page B8 | May 09, 2013 |

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Scott Moore’s eighth-inning blast extended Sacramento’s home run streak to 12 games, but it wasn’t enough as Memphis beat the River Cats, 6-2, on Wednesday afternoon at AutoZone Park.

With two outs in the top of the eighth, and his team trailing 5-0, Moore clubbed his third home run of the year to right field, bringing home Stephen Vogt and preventing what would have been the first shutout of the season for Sacramento. Vogt collected the Cats’ only other extra-base hit in the contest when he doubled earlier in the frame.

Jemile Weeks was the only River Cat to get multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with a walk.

Controversial call kills A’s in Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) — An apparent game-tying homer by Oakland’s Adam Rosales was ruled a double by umpires in the ninth inning, and the Cleveland Indians held on to beat the A’s, 4-3, on Wednesday.

Rosales sent a drive off Indians closer Chris Perez that looked as if it cleared the left-field wall. However, second base umpire Angel Hernandez called it a double, and the crew concurred with the original ruling after leaving the field to review the videotape.

When the umpires returned and told Rosales to stay at second, A’s manager Bob Melvin sprinted onto the field and was immediately ejected.

TV replays appeared to show the ball cleared the yellow stripe and hit a metal railing above the 19-foot high wall.

Torres comes through for Giants in 10th

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Andres Torres lined a game-ending single to right field with two outs in the 10th inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday to avoid a sweep.

Javier Lopez (1-0) pitched the 10th for the win after Sergio Romo blew his second save in 14 opportunities, failing to finish off Barry Zito’s gem.

Buster Posey hit a pinch-hit single to start the 10th against Antonio Bastardo (1-1) and was sacrificed to second by Joaquin Arias. Posey advanced to third on a wild pitch before Torres came through with his fourth career game-ending hit.

The Giants earned their fifth walkoff victory.
