Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Cats ride two-out magic to road win

Highlight: Jake Elmore drove in the tying run in the seventh inning with a two-out single. After Elmore stole second base, Andy Parrino drove in the go-ahead run as the visiting River Cats beat Fresno 6-4 Monday night.

Two down merry-go-round: Sacramento scored all of its runs with two outs.

Spread the wealth: Every River Cat had at least one hit in the team’s 14-hit attack. Elmore, Parrino, Shane Peterson, Alden Carrithers, Luis Exposito each had two hits.

Big relief: Paul Smyth, Austin House and Evan Scribner didn’t allow an earned run in 42/3 innings of relief. Smyth got the win, House the hold and Scribner the save.

On the mend:

Rehabbing second baseman Marco Scutaro drove in the Grizzlies’ first run.

Today: River Cats RHP Zach Neal (2-3, 4.68 ERA) vs. Fresno RHP Mitch Lively (5-4, 5.22), 7:05 p.m., Chukchansi Park.
