Taylor’s bat lifts River Cats

WEST SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento River Cats plated three runs in the sixth inning, including a two-out, two-run single off the bat of right fielder Michael Taylor, to top the Omaha Storm Chasers, 3-2, on Tuesday at Raley Field.

Omaha (34-31) got on the board first with a pair of runs in the third inning. Second baseman Brian Bocock led off the inning with a double to center field and scored on a single by left fielder Paulo Orlando, who advanced to second on the throw home. Designated hitter Johnny Giavotella then plated Orlando from second on a line-drive single to right field, giving the Chasers a 2-0 lead.

Sacramento (38-27) put numbers up in the sixth, ending a 16-inning drought without scoring a run. Second baseman Jake Elmore and shortstop Andy Parrino singled and first baseman Daric Barton reached on an error to load the bases for designated hitter Nate Freiman.

With Freiman batting, Storm Chasers catcher Francisco Pena mishandled the delivery from starter RHP Aaron Brooks for a passed ball, scoring Elmore from third. Taylor then gave Sacramento a 3-2 lead with his timely single up the middle that scored Parrino and Barton.

Elmore and Parrino each went 2-for-4 with a run, and Taylor finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs on the night. Freiman failed to record a hit, ending his 10-game hit-streak.

Brooks (5-2, 2.79 ERA) took the loss but was not credited with any earned runs over 5.2 innings of work. He allowed three unearned runs on seven hits and a walk, while striking out four.

River Cats starter Josh Lindblom (3-3, 6.50 ERA) earned the win after permitting only two runs on six hits and a walk to go along with six strikeouts in 6.1 innings of work. The right-hander was replaced by righty Paul Smyth with one out in the seventh inning after allowing two Chasers to reach base. With runners on the corners and only one out, Smyth was able to net a strikeout and a groundout to end the threat. Smyth tossed 1.1 scoreless innings, yielding only one hit while striking out two.

The newest addition to the Sacramento roster, LHP Justin Marks, retired the only batter he faced in his River Cats debut. RHP Evan Scribner closed the door on the Storm Chasers by striking out the side in the ninth inning to earn his club-leading ninth save of the season.

RHP Matt Buschmann (4-1, 4.19 ERA) will take the mound for the Sacramento River Cats on Wednesday to face LHP John Lamb (2-5, 3.82 ERA) and the Omaha Storm Chasers in game three of the four-game set with first pitch slated for 7:05 p.m. at Raley Field.
