Area sports briefs: River Cats win in extra innings

From page B8 | July 18, 2014 |

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — River Cats All-Star outfielder Shane Peterson went 3-for-5 with four runs, four RBIs and a franchise-high-tying three home runs to help the River Cats beat the host Albuquerque Isotopes, 10-9, in extra innings on Thursday.

Peterson put the Cats on the board with a solo shot in the top of the third before the ‘Topes plated four runs in the bottom of the third, taking a 4-1 lead after three. Albuquerque plated a fifth run in the fourth before the River Cats lashed out for six runs in the top of the fifth, highlighted by Peterson’s second home run of the contest — a two-run shot with no outs.

Albuquerque tied the game at nine in the bottom of the ninth inning off of River Cats co-closer Evan Scribner, giving Sacramento the opportunity for late-game heroics.

Daric Barton led off the top of the 10th inning with a triple, coming around to score when Jose Martinez drove him in with a single up the middle, putting the River Cats ahead 10-9. River Cats extra-frame closer Jeremy McBryde slammed the door with a scoreless 10th inning for the win.

Peterson’s three-home run outburst tied the team record for homers in a game, improving the All-Star’s total to eight on the year. Martinez finished 4-for-5 with a run, an RBI and a double, while outfielder Nick Buss went 3-for-6 with an RBI and a double.

The River Cats will send righty Matt Buschmann to the hill at 6:05 p.m. Friday at Isotopes Park. Sacramento return to Raley Field on July 29 for an eight-game set.

Women’s golf

DuPONT, Wash. — Blair Lewis rallied from three holes down late in her round-of-64 match on Wednesday to a playoff with Cassy Isagawa of Hawaii.

However, the UC Davis senior-to-be was eliminated on the second extra hole at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship at The Home Course.

Lewis, who advanced to match play at the national championship tournament after finishing tied for 41st in stroke play, was down by three holes with just five remaining before two birdies and a par on the 14th through 16th holes knotted the showdown.

Both players posted pars on the final two holes and also on the first extra hole — the par-4, 367-yard, first hole — before Lewis carded a bogey and Isagawa a par on the decisive next hole. Isagawa later advanced to the round of 16.

Lewis helped highlight her week at the prestigious tournament with a 2-under 70 in the first round of stroke play on Monday. She’ll return this fall for UC Davis as it seeks its sixth consecutive conference championship.
