River Cats glance: Freiman provides pop as Cats beat Isotopes

Published: Thursday, Jul. 31, 2014 - 10:37 pm

• Highlight: Nate Freiman doubled home two runs in the fourth inning and hit a solo homer in the sixth, and recently acquired Deck McGuire tossed six shutout innings to lead the River Cats past the Albuquerque Isotopes 5-0 on Thursday night at Raley Field.

• Moves hurt Cats: The A’s designated Jake Elmore for assignment and traded Tommy Milone to the Minnesota Twins. They also optioned Billy Burns to the River Cats. The Burns move clears a spot on the 25-man major league roster and the Elmore move clears a spot on the 40-man roster to accommodate the Jon Lester acquisition.

• League leaders: Entering Thursday’s game, Sacramento’s Shane Peterson led the Pacific Coast League in games (108), hits (138), doubles (31) and runs (77), was tied for the lead in total bases (199), fifth in RBIs (72) and 10th in batting average (.318). Starter Arnold Leon was tied for the lead in wins (10).

• Today: River Cats RHP Zach Neal (4-5, 4.63 ERA) vs. Albuquerque Isotopes RHP Jeff Bennett (5-5, 3.84), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
