Wire briefs: River Cats get a victory in Fresno

From page B8 | July 10, 2014 |

FRESNO — Tommy Milone’s first Sacramento start of 2014 was a good one and the River Cats beat the Fresno Grizzlies, 6-2, at Chukchansi Park on Wednesday.

Milone, a left-hander who was recently sent down from Oakland, tossed four innings and gave up just one run. Still the southpaw left with his team trailing 1-0.

Fresno (45-49) added another run in the fifth before the Cats (54-39) finally started scoring in the sixth inning. That’s when Sacramento’s Jose Martinez blasted a two-run homer to tie the game.

Shortstop Andy Parrino kept the River Cats’ momentum going in the seventh with a two-run single. Eighth-inning RBIs by Kenny Wilson and Jake Elmore finished the scoring for Sacramento.

The finale of the season series between the Cats and the Grizzlies is set for Thursday at 7:05 p.m.

Also Wednesday night, back at Raley Field, a record 14,614 soccer fans filled Raley Field to watch a friendly Liga MX soccer match that saw Club Leon FC defeat Club America, 3-1.

Froome out after crash-filled Tour stage

ARENBERG, France (AP) — Reigning champion Chris Froome crashed twice and quit the Tour de France on Wednesday during a chaotic, nerve-jangling, filthy fifth stage full of spills.

Froome fell even before the seven cobblestone patches on the slick road from Ypres, Belgium, to Arenberg-Porte du Hainaut in France. Riders had known months ago about the bone-jarring course; incessant rain made it even more treacherous.

The withdrawal of the Team Sky leader left the race wide open with 16 stages still left.

Overall race leader Vincenzo Nibali wasted little time in speeding ahead, notably after he saw that his other big rival for the title this year, two-time Tour victor Alberto Contador, had trouble on the second run on cobbles.

Belkin rider Lars Boom got the stage win Wednesday.
