River Cats’ streak reaches six wins

By From page B1 | April 17, 2014

WEST SACRAMENTO — Third baseman Alden Carrithers drove in all four runs — including a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth — to propel the Sacramento River Cats to their sixth straight victory, a 4-2 win over Fresno in front of 7,582 sun-drenched fans at Raley Field on Wednesday.

The Cats (9-5) took an early lead when center fielder Shane Peterson doubled in the first and came home on a Carrithers sacrifice fly.

From there, neither team scored until the sixth, when the Grizzlies took a short-lived 2-1 advantage in the top of the frame before Sacramento took the lead for good on Carrithers’ blast over the right-field fence.

The former UCLA slugger added an eighth-inning RBI single and is now hitting .421 on the season.

River Cats right-hander Zach Neal earned the win, scattering six hits and inducing nine groundball outs over six innings in his first career Triple-A start. Fernando Nieve recorded his third save of the season for the Cats, who will host the Grizzlies on Thursday at 7:05 p.m.
