Despite Adam Duvall’s hot hitting, the River Cats ended the first half of the season with three straight losses and four in their last five games.
After tying a team record with three home runs on Saturday night, Duvall went 2 for 4 with a double in Sacramento’s 5-3 loss to the Fresno Grizzlies on Sunday at Raley Field.
Duvall, who’s headed to the Triple-A All-Star Game on Wednesday in Omaha, Neb., is 7 for 15 (.467) in his last four games. He leads the Pacific Coast League with 20 homers.
Fresno designated hitter Tyler White hit a two-run homer off Tommy Hanson in the first inning and walked three times. In all, four River Cats pitchers walked eight batters, three of whom scored.
