• Highlight: Mike Jacobs hit his fourth homer of the series and Roger Kieschnick added a two-run shot to lead the Aces to a 7-3 victory over the River Cats on Sunday evening at Raley Field.

• This is it: The River Cats must beat Reno today in the final regular-season game to win their PCL division and advance to the playoffs.

• Behind again: For the fourth straight game, the River Cats trailed early, this time 4-0 before batting in the third inning.

• Ladendorf out: A hamstring injury sent infielder Tyler Ladendorf to the disabled list, making him unavailable for playoffs. He was replaced by pitcher Josh Lindblom, who was on the DL.

• Today: River Cats RHP Arnold Leon (10-7, 5.17 ERA) vs. Reno Aces RHP Charles Brewer (8-10, 5.24), 1:05 p.m., Raley Field.
