River Cats glance: Sacramento puts on hit clinic in victory

Published: Monday, Jun. 16, 2014 - 10:39 pm

•  Highlight: Tyler Ladendorf and Shane Peterson led a 14-hit attack with three hits each and Matt Buschmann allowed one run over six innings as the River Cats downed the Iowa Cubs 5-1 on Monday afternoon at Raley Field.

•  Leading the pack: Despite a 6-9 record in June, the River Cats have been in first place in the Northern Division since May 12. That’s a stretch of 33 games and a record of 21-12. They were 14-12 in April and 21-9 in May.

•  Transactions: The A’s optioned infielder Andy Parrino and transferred pitcher Zach Neal from Double-A Midland to the River Cats. Infielder Wade Kirkland returned to Advanced-A Stockton, and pitcher Marcus Walden was out-righted to Midland.

•  Freiman injured: Nate Freiman and his 61 RBIs were out of the River Cats lineup after he fouled a ball off his foot on Sunday.

•  The rotation: Through Sunday, none of the River Cats’ five starting right-handed pitchers had a losing record – Arnold Leon (6-2), Dan Straily (4-1), Josh Lindblom (3-3), Buschmann (5-2) and Walden (2-2).

•  Today: River Cats RHP Arnold Leon (6-2, 5.35 ERA) vs. Round Rock TBA, 5:05 p.m., Dell Diamond, Round Rock, Texas.
