River Cats glance: Martinez sparks Cats in win over Fresno

• Highlight: Jose Martinez reached base five times, Kent Matthes slugged two doubles, and Arnold Leon pitched six quality innings to pace the River Cats to a 4-2 victory over the Fresno Grizzlies on Friday night at Raley Field.

• Susac series: Fresno catcher Andrew Susac, a former Jesuit High School star, went 4 for 12 with two doubles, a homer and four RBIs in the four-game series. Susac also walked twice and was hit by a pitch twice.

• Streak snapped: Despite reaching base three times, the River Cats’ Alden Carrithers had his 14-game hitting streak dating to last year end.

• Doing just fine:

Entering Friday, River Cats shortstop Tyler Ladendorf, led the team in hitting (.417) while batting ninth. He was fifth in the Pacific Coast League in hitting and fourth in on-base percentage (.533).

Today: River Cats TBA vs. Tacoma RHP Jordan Pries (0-0, no ERA), 5:05 p.m., Cheney Stadium, Tacoma, Wash.
