River Cats upended by Omaha

WEST SACRAMENTO — The Omaha Storm Chasers, backed by 16 hits, overpowered the Sacramento River Cats, 10-4, Wednesday night at Raley Field.

The River Cats (38-28) got things started in the bottom of the first when second baseman Tyler Ladendorf tripled to left-center field and then scored on an RBI groundout by shortstop Andy Parrino, giving the Cats an early 1-0 lead.

The Cats’ lead didn’t last for long as the Chasers stormed back in the top of the second inning with three runs on two RBI singles and a wild pitch to take the lead 3-1.

Omaha (35-31) increased its lead to 7-2 behind a four-run fourth inning that included a three-run home run by second baseman Johnny Giavotella. The Storm Chasers then tacked on three more runs in the top of the eighth.

The Cats tacked on two late runs in the bottom of the eighth for the final tally.

Giavotella finished the game 3-for-5 for the Chasers with two runs, a homer, and five RBI. He has seven RBIs in the series.

Parrino ended up 2-for-3 with a run, a stolen base, two walks, and two RBIs, while Ladendorf completed the game 2-for-4 with a run and a triple.

Right-handed starter Matt Buschmann (4-2, 5.36 ERA) took the loss for the River Cats after giving up seven runs on nine hits and three walks, while striking out four in just 3 1/3 innings. Buschmann has now lost back-to-back games after starting the season 4-0.

Sacramento faces Omaha in the series finale at 7:05 Thursday. The Cats will send right-hander Arnold Leon (6-1, 5.28 ERA) to the hill to face Chaser righty Sugar Ray Marimon (4-3, 3.49 ERA).
