WEST SACRAMENTO — Jake Goebbert and Shane Peterson blasted solo home runs, but the Sacramento River Cats dropped their second game in a row to the Tucson Padres, 7-6, on Tuesday night at Raley Field.

After the T-Pads scored three times in the top of the first, Michael Taylor and Anthony Aliotti knocked in runs to tie the game in the bottom of the frame.

The Cats then took a short advantage on Hiro Nakajima’s RBI single to left in the third inning. But two Tucson runs in the fourth and another pair in the sixth gave the T-Pads the lead for good at 7-4.

Sacramento crept closer with the two longballs, but it wasn’t enough.

For the River Cats, Michael Choice and Aliotti each finished 2-for-5, with Aliotti notching two RBIs. Goebbert’s home run was his second of the season and part of his 2-for-4 outing. Daric Barton, Nakajima, and Ryan Ortiz all recorded hits for Sacramento, as well.

Bruce Billings (13-6) started for the Cats, giving up seven earned runs on 10 hits, while striking out four in just four innings of work. Relievers Chris Resop and Pedro Figueroa combined for three scoreless innings and four strikeouts.

The loss, combined with Las Vegas’ win over Salt Lake City, dropped Sacramento (72-59) into second place in the PCL. The 51s hold the tiebreaker with 13 games left in the regular season.

The River Cats travel to play Colorado Springs on Wednesday, in the first game of a five game set. First pitch is set for 5:25 p.m.
