River Cats can’t catch the Express

By From page B1 | June 18, 2014

ROUND ROCK, Texas — Sacramento’s Shane Peterson went 2-for-4 with three RBIs and his fifth home run of the season, but the River Cats dropped the opener of a series in Round Rock, 7-5, on Tuesday night at Dell Diamond.

The Cats (41-31) jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Tyler Ladendorf plated Jake Elmore with a groundout to shortstop. Then, after the Express (35-37) tied things in the second, Peterson’s three-run shot in the third put Sacramento up 4-1.

Round Rock, however, scored the next five runs of the contest to take control.

For the River Cats, Jose Martinez finished 3-for-4, while Andy Parrino went 2-for-4 with a walk and his fourth homer of the season.

But the Sacramento pitching staff combined to give up a franchise-record nine doubles.

The two teams are back at it Wednesday at 5:05 p.m.
