Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Parrino’s bat provides fireworks as Cats roll

• Highlight: Andy Parrino‘s three-run homer highlighted a four-run first inning that sent the River Cats to a 6-4 victory over Reno on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Aces Ballpark.

Finding his groove: After allowing hits to five of the first eight batters he faced, Cats starter Arnold Leon (9-2) appeared in danger of hitting the showers early. Leon escaped the first unscathed, but the right-hander gave up two runs in the second and was on the ropes before getting Andy Marte to pop out to first with the bases loaded to end the inning. Leon allowed just two hits over the next 32/3 scoreless innings.

Helping hand: With the Cats up 4-2 in the third, Reno’s Danny Dorn attempted to score from second on Argenis Diaz’s two-out single to right but was gunned down at the plate by Cats’ right fielder Josh Whitaker.

Today: River Cats (TBD) vs. Reno RHP Bo Schultz (6-5, 5.34 ERA), 7:05 p.m., Aces Ballpark, Reno.
