River Cats glance: Susac a Cats killer

Susac a Cats killer

• Highlight: Andrew Susac, a Jesuit High School product, homered, doubled and drove in two runs to lead the Fresno Grizzlies to a 7-3 victory Thursday at Raley Field, snapping the River Cats six-game winning streak.

• Triple threat: River Cats Tyler Ladendorf (.417), Jake Goebbert (.368) and Alden Carrithers (.395), who extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a single in the ninth inning, have combined for a .400 average with 12 doubles and 27 RBIs.

• Solid pen: River Cats relievers have allowed only three runs over the past 19 innings. Fernando Nieve (2.70), Evan Scribner (0.00), Fernando Rodriguez (1.50) and Paul Smyth (0.00) have ERAs under 3.00.

• Today: River Cats RHP Arnold Leon (0-1, 6.00 ERA) vs. Fresno Grizzlies LHP

Mike Kickham (0-2, 3.52), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
