Sacramento River Cats

Cats glance: Cats strike in fifth, extend winning streak

• 

Highlight:

Nick Buss had a home run and Alden Carrithers a two-run triple in a four-run fifth inning to lead the River Cats past the Albuquerque Isotopes 5-4 Tuesday night at Raley Field.



• 

Back on track:

After missing 30 games because of a strained side muscle, Stephen Vogt is locked in at the plate. He’s batting .352 in 17 games and has hits in 10 straight games, including seven multi-hit performances. In the last five games, he has a double, two triples, two homers and 10 RBIs and has scored seven runs. The River Cats are 13-4 with him in the lineup and 19-16 without him.



• 

Top spot:

The River Cats are 16-4 when Carrithers bats leadoff.



• 

POW honor:

River Cats starter Dan Straily was named Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week. In two starts, he was 2-0 with an 0.64 ERA over 14 innings, allowed five hits and struck out 15. Ex-River Cats starter Zach Neal earned the same honor for the Stockton Ports in the Advanced-A California League, going 1-0 with 11 strikeouts in 82/3 innings.



• 

On a roll:

The River Cats have won seven games in a row, equaling their best winning streak this season.



• 

Today:

River Cats RHP Marcus Walden (2-1, 5.20 ERA) vs. Albuquerque RHP Jeff Bennett (1-0, 0.00), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
