•  Highlight: Nate Freiman had a game-winning single in the ninth inning to send the River Cats to an 8-7 victory over the Albuquerque Isotopes on Friday night at Raley Field. The triumph was the 19th in the last 23 games and second consecutive in walk-off fashion.

•  Franchise record: The River Cats have won 24 home games during the first two months of the season. The previous mark was 19 in 2012.

•  Grand finale: The River Cats’ Nick Buss hit a grand slam in the second inning in the final game of the homestand.

•  Déjà vu: River Cats starting pitcher Josh Lindblom pitched for Albuquerque in 2009-10 and Isotopes starter Sam Demel for the River Cats that same season. Both pitchers gave up seven runs.

•  Key numbers: The River Cats are 21-10 when hitting a home run and 13-11 when they don’t hit a home run. They are also 26-5 when holding opponents to five runs or less.

•  Today: River Cats RHP Matt Buschmann (3-0, 4.73 ERA) at Fresno RHP Chris Heston (4-2, 3.72), 7:05 p.m., Chukchansi Park.
