River Cats stay hot in 10-3 win

WEST SACRAMENTO — River Cats catcher Stephen Vogt, reigning Pacific Coast League player of the week, continued his recent stretch of hot hitting, going 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored to lead Sacramento over Colorado Springs, 10-3, on Tuesday at Raley Field.

Sky Sox outfielder Charlie Culberson opened the game by taking Cats starter Andrew Werner deep, but Vogt responded in the bottom of the first with a solo blast of his own. The game-tying homer was Vogt’s fourth in six games.

Sacramento added three runs in the second inning with a two-out RBI single from Andy Parrino — plating Michael Taylor and Hiro Nakajima — and an RBI triple from Jemile Weeks, his eighth three-bagger of the season.

The River Cats tacked on another run in the fifth, capitalizing on a wild pitch from Colorado Springs starter Jeff Manship (5-8) to bring Vogt in from third. Later, the Cats’ five-run eighth inning included two-run hits from Daric Barton and Michael Choice and an RBI single from Taylor.

Werner earned his ninth win of the season for the Cats, placing him just one behind teammate Bruce Billings for the league lead. In seven innings on the mound, the southpaw surrendered one run on four hits while tying his season-high in strikeouts with seven.

With his 2-for-4 night at the plate Nakajima extended his season-high hitting streak to 14 games, the longest such streak of any Sacramento player this season.

The River Cats continue their four-game series with the Sky Sox on Wednesday at Raley Field.
