SACRAMENTO (AP) — The Sacramento Kings have taken Michigan guard Nik Stauskas with the eighth overall pick in the NBA draft.

With many needs heading into Thursday’s draft, the Kings opted for one of the top shooters available in Stauskas.

The 6-foot-6 Stauskas became one of the nation’s most well-rounded offensive players, averaging 17.5 points last season on the way to winning Big Ten player of the year honors. Stauskas shot 44 percent from 3-point range in two years in college and improved his ball handling and defense in his second season.

River Cats

Sacramento shortstop Andy Parrino’s walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th inning propelled the River Cats to a 7-5 win over the Las Vegas 51s in a nationally televised game Thursday night in front of a sell-out crowd of 14,607 fans at Raley Field.

With the victory, the first-place Cats improved to 46-34.

Shane Peterson’s three-run double gave Sacramento an early lead that slipped away on a Las Vegas homer in the top of the ninth.

Evan Scribner earned the win for the River Cats by after tossing two scoreless innings.

Giants fall to Reds, 3-1

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Brandon Phillips homered among his three hits and scored twice in his return to the lineup, leading Cincinnati over San Francisco, 3-1.

Adam Duvall homered in his major league debut for the Giants, who lost for the 12th time in 16 games. Ryan Vogelsong (5-4) allowed one run and five hits over six innings one day after teammate Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter against San Diego.
