River Cats glance: Zephyrs deal early blows, down Cats 4-1

Published: Saturday, Jun. 21, 2014 - 9:38 pm

• Highlight: Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick continued his rehabilitation stint by going 4-for-5, including hitting two doubles, but Sacramento missed the timely hit in a 4-1 loss to host New Orleans.

• Early blows: The Zephyers wasted no time in the series opener. Mark Canha singled up the middle to score Donovan Solano, who had doubled, in the first. New Orleans went up 4-0 in the second on a Zack Cox RBI double, a Matt Angle RBI-bunt single, and a run-scoring groundout by Solano.

• Missed opportunity: Sacramento scored a run with two outs in the top of the sixth, but left the bases loaded for a short-lived rally. Nick Buss drove in Shane Peterson (fielder’s choice) with a single to right-center field for the River Cats’ lone run.

• Today: River Cats RHP Zach Neal (2-2, 5.14 ERA) vs. New Orleans LHP Adam Conley (2-2, 4.76 ERA), 11 a.m., Zephyr Field.
