Sacramento River Cats

River Cats tie franchise mark with ninth straight loss

The River Cats tied a franchise record with their ninth straight loss, falling to the Nashville Sounds 3-2 at Raley Field.

It’s the first time in the Cats’ 16-year history that they went winless in an eight-game homestand, the team reported.

Sacramento starter Kevin Correia left with a 2-0 lead after seven innings. But Nashville rallied for three runs in the eighth on three hits and a hit by pitch off left-hander Steven Okert. The last two runs scored on a triple by Jason Pridie, who batted .467 (7 for 15) with five extra-base hits, including a home run, and four RBIs in the series.

The River Cats managed only three hits on Thursday, although two were home runs by Jarrett Parker and John Bowker. Parker went 2 for 2 and needs five hits to reach 500 in his minor-league career.
