Pro briefs: River Cats edge Las Vegas, 5-4

By
April 30, 2011 |

Sacramento’s Josh Donaldson tied the game with a home run in the fourth inning and Jai Miller knocked in three more runs in the fifth with a triple to lead the River Cats past Las Vegas on Saturday, 5-4.

The fifth-inning rally gave the Cats a 5-3 lead and the Sacramento bullpen allowed just one run for the rest of the game to hold on.

The homer was Donaldson’s second of the season and Miller’s triple — which brought home Eric Sogard, Steve Tolleson and Matt Carson — was also his second of the year.

Anthony Recker and Shane Peterson also had hits for the River Cats (14-9), while starter Josh Outman (1-1) went five innings and allowed two earned runs to get the win.

Sacramento’s Trystan Magnuson pitched a scoreless ninth inning, striking out two to notch his second save.

Rangers show power in victory over A’s

OAKLAND (AP) — Michael Young hit his first home run of the season, Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli followed with back-to-back shots in the fourth, and the Texas Rangers pounded out 14 hits while beating the Oakland Athletics, 11-2, on Saturday.

The Rangers took advantage of an uncharacteristically wild day by Oakland starter Brett Anderson, who hadn’t allowed a home run in eight consecutive straights going back to 2010. Texas hit three homers off the A’s ace before chasing him out of the game after five innings.

A day after getting 11 hits — all singles — Texas had five extra-base hits off five Oakland pitchers and finished with 14 hits overall, one shy of its season-high. Every starter except Mitch Moreland had at least one hit and seven players had at least one RBI.

Kurt Suzuki and Josh Willingham homered for Oakland, which failed in its attempt to get above .500 for only the second time this season.

Suzuki’s homer on a 2-2 pitch from Colby Lewis (2-3) in the second tied the game. Suzuki’s solo shot, only his second home run of the season, came two days after the birth of the Oakland catcher’s first child.

Giants hang on to defeat Nationals, 2-1

WASHINGTON (AP) — San Francisco starter Jonathan Sanchez walked or hit seven of the first 10 Washington Nationals he faced. Giants closer Brian Wilson walked or hit three out of four Nationals hitters in one stretch in the ninth inning of the Giants’ 2-1 victory over the Nationals.

Sanchez also walked someone else and mixed in a wild pitch, reliever Jeremy Affeldt added yet another walk, and shortstop Mike Fontenot dropped a throw for an error.

Somehow, despite a total of nine walks and three hit batters, the Giants allowed only one run.They managed win after the go-ahead run scored when a slumping Aubrey Huff drew a bases-loaded walk as a pinch hitter.

According to STATS LLC, the Giants are the first team since 1955 to put 12 or more of an opponent’s runners on base via a walk or hit-by-pitch but give up fewer than two runs in a nine-inning game. Oddly enough, the losing team in that long-ago game also was a team known as the Washington Nationals.

“A strange game,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “Jonathan — he didn’t know where the ball was going. He was all over the board.”

The Nationals left the bases loaded three times. They only accumulated two hits all game — both by Rick Ankiel off Sanchez, including a run-scoring single in the second.

Sanchez walked six but allowed just one unearned run in his five innings. Guillermo Mota (2-0) pitched a perfect sixth for the win, and four other relievers followed with hitless work.

Still, Wilson made it interesting in the ninth. He walked two batters and hit Jayson Werth to load the bases with two outs, before striking out Adam LaRoche swinging for his eighth save in nine chances.

Eli Whiteside’s homer in the third inning accounted for the other Giants run.
