River Cats glance: Pitching carries Cats past Round Rock

Published: Wednesday, Jun. 18, 2014 - 10:42 pm

Highlight: Nate Freiman homered and Arnold Leon combined with three relievers on a two-hit shutout as the River Cats defeated the host Express 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Dealing: Leon was dominant from the outset, retiring 13 of the first 14 batters he faced, and 18 of 20 overall, en route to his seventh win of the season. Cats pitchers allowed just two Round Rock batters to reach base in their second shutout of the season. The first came May 19 against El Paso at Raley Field.

Reddick sighting:: Injured A’s outfielder Josh Reddick (knee) – making his first rehab appearance of the season – went 1 for 3 with an outfield assist before giving way to Colin Walsh in the eighth inning.

Today: River Cats RHP Dan Straily (4-1, 3.55 ERA) vs. Round Rock RHP Phil Irwin (2-1, 2.94), 5:05 p.m., Dell Diamond, Round Rock, Texas.
