Highlight: Kent Matthes hit two home runs and former Sacramento City right-hander Drew Carpenter earned the win as the visiting Colorado Sky Sox beat the River Cats 5-3 Tuesday.

Green is red hot: River Cats second baseman Grant Green is 11 for 18 in his last four games with three doubles and a home run.

Streak in jeopardy: The River Cats are 11-13 in June. With four games left this month, they must go 3-1 to extend their streak of 19 straight months of .500 or better. The four games are all at Raley Field.

Back at cleanup: After batting fifth Monday for the first time this season, Michael Choice was back in his usual No. 4 spot.

Olympians honored: Three-time Olympic swimming champion Debbie Meyer threw out the first pitch. She was one of a number of former Olympians who were honored before the game. In 1968, Meyer won gold in the 200, 400 and 800 meters.

Today: No game.

Thursday: River Cats RHP Sonny Gray (7-5, 2.85 ERA)vs. Reno Aces RHP Nate Adcock (1-0, 10.00), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
