Briefs: Memphis scores late to beat Cats

By
May 10, 2011 |

MEMPHIS — Sacramento’s bullpen couldn’t hold a late one-run lead and host Memphis took the first contest of a four-game series, 10-8, on Tuesday at Autozone Park.

The River Cats took an 8-7 lead when Steve Tolleson came home on Matt Carson’s base hit to center field, but would not score again.

Sacramento reliever Willie Erye loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh with three consecutive walks before being replaced by Vinnie Chulk, who walked in the tying run and gave up an RBI single to Jim Rapoport, putting Memphis up for good.

Shane Peterson, Anthony Recker, Jemile Weeks and Tolleson each had two hits for the Cats.

Beltre’s homer helps Rangers past Oakland

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Colby Lewis pitched neatly into the eighth inning and the Texas Rangers got a two-run homer from slumping Adrian Beltre in a rain-delayed 7-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.

Beltre, who was given a night off Monday and had gone 4-for-31 over his previous nine games, connected in the fifth inning to chase A’s starter Brett Anderson (2-3).

Oakland’s Cliff Pennington homered in the sixth before a 59-minute rain delay, and Conor Jackson added a sacrifice fly in the ninth.

Ross’ RBI in the ninth gives Giants a 1-0 win

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Cody Ross hit a game-ending RBI single in the ninth inning, Tim Lincecum pitched another gem and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 on Tuesday night for their fourth straight victory.

Ross’ line-drive single down the third base line off David Hernandez (2-1) scored pinch-runner Darren Ford from second, sending the Giants pouring out of the dugout in celebration for their third last at-bat win in four games.

Lincecum struck out nine and took a no-hitter into the sixth in another dominating start for the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, giving San Francisco back-to-back shutouts and spoiling a stellar outing by Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy. It was also the first time Arizona has been held scoreless this season.

Brian Wilson (3-1) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win.

Buster Posey led off the ninth with a four-pitch walk. He was lifted for Ford, who stole second so easily that catcher Miguel Montero didn’t even contest with a throw.

Hernandez rallied by striking out Aubrey Huff before Ross sent a line drive past diving third baseman Melvin Mora for another dramatic late-inning victory that is becoming all too common again. The Giants have five walk-off wins already this year.
