Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Bees tame River Cats for second day in a row

• Highlight: Nick Buss and Nate Freiman each went 2-for-4, but the River Cats dropped the second game of their four-game set at the hands of the Salt Lake Bees, 3-1, Friday night at Smith’s Ballpark. Salt Lake scored a run in each of the first three innings, capped by an Efren Navarro’s solo home run in the third, taking a three-run lead into the fourth inning.

• River Cats’ lone run: Sacramento put a run on the board in the top of the fifth when Andy Parrino drove in Ryan Ortiz with a single to right field.

• Tops at the plate: In addition to two-hit days from Buss and Freiman, Michael Taylor went 0 for 1 with two walks, while Parrino finished 1 for 3.

• Of note: Sacramento returns to Raley Field on Monday to start an eight-game homestand that opens with a four-game set against the Omaha Storm Chasers, followed by four games against Manny Ramirez and the Iowa Cubs.

• Today: The River Cats’ Arnold Leon (5-1, 5.59 ERA) goes up against a Salt Lake starter to be determined at 6:05 p.m. at Smith’s Ballpark.
