Tucson blows out Cats at Raley

WEST SACRAMENTO — Ryan Ortiz went 3-for-4 with two runs, an RBI and his second home run of the season, but the Sacramento River Cats fell to the visiting Tucson Padres, 13-3, on Monday night, snapping their franchise-high 10-game home winning streak.

The T-Pads (67-63) were in control from the outset after plating four runs in the top of the first inning. They would go on to score two in the third and fourth innings, and five in the sixth on their way to pushing the Cats (72-58) into a virtual tie with Las Vegas atop the PCL’s Pacific South Division. Tucson is in third place.

Sacramento scored once in the bottom of the second on Ortiz’s home run to left field, then again in the fifth when Shane Peterson doubled home Ortiz with two outs. The third and final River Cats run crossed the plate in the bottom of the seventh, as Michael Choice drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs.

Though the Cats pitching staff yielded 13 runs, only six were earned thanks to five Sacramento errors. After Andy Parrino exited the game to begin the seventh inning, third baseman Daric Barton — who usually plays first base — shifted to second base, catcher Ryan Ortiz moved to third base, second baseman Hiro Nakajima moved to shortstop, and David Freitas came in off the bench to play catcher.

The River Cats conclude their five-game set with Tucson at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday when PCL wins leader Bruce Billings (13-5, 3.88 ERA) starts opposite T-Pads righty Keyvius Sampson (1-2, 6.56 ERA) at Raley Field.
