Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Isotopes defeat Cats in run-fest

Highlight: Nate Freiman launched two home runs – his fourth and fifth of the season – but the River Cats fell 12-7 to the host Albuquerque Isotopes on Thursday night.

Runs galore: Hitter-friendly Isotopes Park lived up to its reputation as 14 combined runs were scored in the game's first three innings.

Rallies come up short: The River Cats attempted a comeback, scoring once in the sixth and then twice in the seventh on Freiman's second blast, but the Isotopes’ lead proved too large to overcome.

Cats on a tear: Freiman finished 2 for 4 with two runs, three RBIs, a walk, and two homers, while Ryan Ortiz finished 3 for 4 with two runs, two RBIs and his first home run of the season.

Today: River Cats RHP Zach Neal (1-1, 4.68 ERA) vs. Albuquerque RHP Henry Sosa (1-1, 2.25) , 6:05 p.m., Isotopes Park, Albuquerque, N.M.
