Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Former Cal star leads Zephyrs over Cats

Highlight: Former Cal standout Mark Canha continued his hot streak with two more hits and three RBIs as the New Orleans Zephyrs defeated the River Cats 6-1 on Tuesday in the final game of Sacramento’s eight-game trip, which the team finished 4-4. Canha doubled and homered, and is batting .520 in his past eight games.

Take a bow: Cats third baseman Jose Martinez and left fielder Jake Elmore each doubled.

Take a day off: Following 20 games in 20 days, the Cats are off today. They’ll begin an eight-game homestand Thursday in a nationally televised game against the Las Vegas 51s that will be shown on the CBS Sports Network.

Thursday’s game: River Cats RHP Josh Lindblom (4-3, 6.19 ERA) vs. Las Vegas RHP Noah Syndergaard (6-4, 4.98), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
