Wire sports briefs: Cats keep scratching out wins

From page B3 | April 14, 2013 |

RENO, Nev. — Scott Moore helped stake Sacramento to a nine-run lead with four hits in his first four at-bats, and the River Cats held on for a 15-11 win over the Reno Aces on Saturday at Aces Ballpark.

Sacramento scored in double digits for the second straight night at hitter-friendly Aces Ballpark, but Reno staged a late-inning comeback, cutting a nine-run deficit to one. Trailing 12-11 in the eighth, the Aces had the tying run on base, but River Cats reliever Dan Otero stranded him there to preserve the one-run lead.

After the Cats tacked on three insurance runs in the ninth inning, Otero held on for his first save of the season, keeping Reno off the board and giving Sacramento its third straight win.

Sonny Gray (1-0) earned his first-career Triple-A win, allowing three earned runs in five innings of work, striking out five and walking three. Otero retired four of the five batters he faced, maintaining his perfect ERA so far in 2013.

The story of the game was the Sacramento offense, which put up 15 runs a night after a 16-run effort. Moore led the charge, finishing 4-for-5, while Daric Barton added two hits and drove in four runs. The bottom five hitters in the River Cats lineup combined to go 12-for-23 with 10 RBIs, while Michael Choice drew three walks and scored three times.

Tigers end Oakland’s win streak at nine

OAKLAND (AP) — Prince Fielder homered for the second straight game and Torii Hunter hit his first clout since joining Detroit to help back Justin Verlander as the Tigers snapped the Oakland Athletics’ nine-game winning streak with a 7-3 victory on Saturday.

Jhonny Peralta followed Fielder’s leadoff shot in the fourth with a three-run homer.

A’s nemesis Verlander (2-1) outpitched Oakland lefty Brett Anderson before a sellout crowd.

Verlander struck out six and walked three in six innings, allowing one run and three hits.

Anderson (1-2) allowed three home runs to match a career high. He was tagged for seven runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings, while striking out two and walking three.

Giants edge Cubs behind Bumgarner

CHICAGO (AP) — Madison Bumgarner allowed two runs while pitching into the seventh inning, Marco Scutaro had three hits and the San Francisco Giants held off the Chicago Cubs, 3-2, on Saturday.

Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro hit a two-out, two-run homer off of Bumgarner in the seventh to pull the Cubs to 3-2. It was Navarro’s second pinch home run in two days — the only two of his career — each hit from a different side of the plate. His tying homer in the ninth Friday was hit from the left side.

The Cubs threatened in the eighth, putting two on with no outs, before Alfonso Soriano grounded out and Welington Castillo hit into a double play against Santiago Casilla, who earned his first save. Giants closer Sergio Romo was unavailable after throwing four of the last five games.

Bumgarner (3-0) struck out six and walked two, one intentional, in 6 2/3 innings.

Stars double up San Jose, 2-1

DALLAS (AP) — Eric Nystrom and rookie Alex Chiasson scored goals, Richard Bachman made 31 saves and Dallas extended its winning streak to five games.

Chiasson scored his sixth goal in just his sixth career NHL contest since being recalled from AHL Texas on April 2, helping the Stars improve to 45 points, even with Detroit and Columbus for the Western Conference’s eighth and final playoff spot.

Brent Burns scored for the Sharks, who were coming off a 3-2 shootout win in Detroit on Thursday and are 8-2-1 in their last 11 contests.
