RIVER CATS AT A GLANCE

Peterson pads streak, but Redbirds rout Cats

• Snap out of it: Shane Peterson homered to extend his hitting streak to nine games, but the visiting River Cats lost to the Memphis Redbirds 10-3 Friday.

• Nakajima watch: Shortstop Hiro Nakajima, playing for Sacramento on a rehabilitation assignment from the A's, drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. He also started three 6-4-3 double plays.

• Enjoying the new scenery: Jeremy Barfield, playing in his second Triple-A game, had another hit. He's 3 for 7 since joining the Cats.

• Extra-base woes: For the second straight game, the River Cats managed just one extra-base hit.
