Sports briefs: Negron goes yard in first week with Reds

From page B2 | July 15, 2014 |

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Kris Negron, a Vanden High graduate and one-time member of the UC Davis baseball roster, hit his first Major League home run in Sunday’s 6-3 victory over Pittsburgh.

Negron was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday. He was hitting .269 with 15 doubles in 75 games for the Bats before belting a three-run homer to the opposite field on Sunday in Cincinnati.

The former Cosumnes River College standout can thank a couple of Davis residents for helping him get to the majors as he played for CRC manager Tony Bloomfield and spent two summers with the Solano Thunderbirds, who were managed by Phil Swimley.

River Cats

Sacramento cut Reno’s lead in half with a run in the eighth inning, but the Aces held on for a 2-1 win over the River Cats on Sunday at Raley Field.

With the victory, which came in the last contest for both teams before the Triple-A All-Star Game, Reno (52-46) avoided a sweep at the hands of the Cats (56-41).

The Aces scored their first run in the top of the second inning, when Garrett Weber singled home Danny Dorn, then went up 2-0 when Alfredo Marte drove in Mike Freeman in the fifth.

Sacramento finally got on the board in the bottom of the eighth when Daric Barton’s single into left field plated Alden Carrithers.

Trailing by just one run in the bottom of the ninth, the Cats put runners on first and second with one out, but Reno closer Jake Barrett closed the door.

In the loss, River Cats shortstop Jake Elmore went 2-for-3, Jose Martinez added a hit and a walk, while Barton was 2-for-4.

Sacramento’s starter Zach Neal (2-5, 4.80 ERA) picked up the loss despite striking out four in six strong innings. After that, the Cats got three shutout innings from relievers Fernando Rodriguez, Joe Savery and Paul Smyth who, with teammate Shane Peterson, is headed to North Carolina for Wednesday’s all-star game.

After the All-Star break, Sacramento is in Albuquerque for a four-game series beginning Thursday at 6:05 p.m.

DAM anniversary party

Davis Aquatic Masters is celebrating its 40th year as an organized adult swim team and invites all current and former members and coaches to attend the party.

On Saturday, Aug, 9, DAM will host a luau from 6 to 11 p.m. featuring a catered dinner, beverages, entertainment, dancing and a brief program MC’d by head coach Stu Kahn.

“This celebration is a testament to swimmers, coaches and supporters who have allowed the club to prosper and endure and reach our current membership of 500-plus,” Kahn explained.

Included in the evening will be the DAM version of “Duel in the Pool,” a handicapped race between Ernie Hoftyzer and Rick Moss.
