WEST SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento River Cats snapped a three-game losing streak by pounding out 12 hits en route to a 7-2 victory over the Albuquerque Isotopes on Wednesday afternoon at Raley Field.

The River Cats (63-49) got to Isotopes starter Drew Carpenter (2-1, 7.76 ERA) early, picking up three runs in the first inning. Left fielder Shane Peterson smacked a single to right that plated Nick Buss, and designated hitter Nate Freiman followed with an RBI-single to make it 2-0. A sacrifice fly by second baseman Colin Walsh gave the Cats a three-run lead after the first.

Carpenter pitched four-plus innings, surrendering five runs — four earned — on six hits and five walks with four strikeouts, taking the loss for the Isotopes.

Albuquerque (53-59) responded in the top of the third when first baseman Clint Robinson doubled home Carlos Triunfel off Sacramento starter Arnold Leon (10-5, 4.87 ERA).

With two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning, River Cats shortstop Jake Elmore lofted a fly ball that was misplayed by Isotopes right fielder Trayvon Robinson, allowing Anthony Aliotti to score from second to make it a 4-1 contest. Aliotti would draw a bases-loaded walk in the following inning to extend the lead to four.

The Isotopes cut the lead back to three in the top of the seventh on designated hitter Chone Figgins’ infield-single to second base that scored Triunfel from third. Triunfel finished the game 2-for-3 with two runs scored and a triple.

Buss’ two-run single in the bottom of the seventh made the score 7-2, and the Sacramento bullpen tossed 2 2/3innings of scoreless relief to keep Albuquerque from mounting any sort of comeback.

Leon earned the win for the River Cats, tying the Pacific Coast League-lead with 10 on the season. The right-hander worked 6 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits with two walks and five punchouts.

Freiman collected three hits on the day, including an RBI, his 70th on the season. Aliotti finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored, an RBI and a walk, while Elmore went 2-for-5 with a run and two doubles.

Righty Deck McGuire (0-0, 0.00 ERA) makes his career start for Sacramento on Thursday against Albuquerque’s Zach Lee (6-9, 5.18 ERA) at Raley Field. First pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m.
