Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Two pitchers team with Carrithers in win

• Highlight: Matt Buschmann and rehabbing Drew Pomeranz limited the Reno Aces to three hits over eight innings and Alden Carrithers had two doubles to pace the River Cats to a 4-3 victory Saturday night before an announced crowd of 13,168.

• Pomeranz sharp: The left-hander pitched four innings, allowed one hit and struck out seven.

• Where’s the power?: With the A’s recalling Andy Parrino, the 11 position players for the River Cats now have a total of 20 homers. Alfredo Marte and Andy Marte have combined for 23 for the Aces.

• Cats are sixth: The Johnny Cash burger finished sixth for the minor-league Food Fight crown. The Lakewood BlueClaws’ Triple C crab cake sandwich, a half-pound crab cake sandwich topped with mango and pineapple coleslaw and smothered in a chipotle ranch cream sauce, narrowly edged the Round Rock Express’ grilled cheese hot dog. There were 60 entrants.

Today: River Cats RHP Zach Neal (2-4, 4.97) vs. Reno Aces RHP Charles Brewer (3-7, 6.75), 1:05 p.m., Raley Field.
