Wire sports briefs: Cats’ Straily shuts down Tacoma

From page B8 | April 12, 2013 |

Sacramento pitcher Dan Straily struck out nine in his 2013 debut, helping the River Cats beat the visiting Tacoma Rainiers, 5-4, on a Jackie Robinson-themed Thursday night at Raley Field.

Jemile Weeks went 2-for-5 with a run, an RBI and a double, extending his hitting streak to a Cats-high eight games. Conner Crumbliss finished 1-for-3 with a run, three RBIs and a home run, while third baseman Josh Horton went 3-for-4 with a run scored.

Tacoma right-handed pitcher — and former Oakland Athletics first-round pick — Jeremy Bonderman gave up five earned runs on nine hits for the loss.

A’s defeat Angels to complete a sweep

ANAHEIM (AP) — Josh Donaldson hit a tiebreaking homer in the sixth, Yoenis Cespedes also went deep and A.J. Griffin pitched eight solid innings as Oakland beat Los Angeles, 8-1, to extend its winning streak to eight games.

This was the first time Oakland swept the Angels in the first head-to-head series of a season since 2003, and the first time the Athletics swept their first series at the “Big A” since 1996.

Seth Smith had four hits for the A’s, who swept a road trip of six or more games for only the third time since the franchise relocated from Kansas City to Oakland in 1968. They had a 10-0 trip in August 2002 and an 8-0 excursion in April 1981.

Giants come back to edge Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double in a four-run fourth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied from an early five-run deficit to top the Chicago Cubs, 7-6, Thursday.

Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong walked with the bases loaded to tie it in the fifth and Angel Pagan followed with a sacrifice fly, helping the World Series champion Giants win their fourth in a row.

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro’s fielding error with two outs in the fourth allowed the first run to score. Scott Feldman (0-2) then gave up an RBI single to Angel Pagan and hit Crawford with a pitch ahead of Sandoval’s double.

Vogelsong (1-1) yielded eight hits and five runs in the first three innings before retiring his final 10 batters in a foggy and damp, 40-degree day.

Sharks get past Red Wings in shots

DETROIT (AP) — Patrick Marleau scored the winner in the shootout and had a short-handed goal early in the game, lifting San Jose over Detroit, 3-2.

Antti Niemi made 27 saves through overtime, while Jimmy Howard stopped 28 shots for Detroit. Niemi got his glove on Niklas Kronwall’s slap shot with 44 seconds left in the extra period, giving the Sharks a chance in the shootout.
