River Cats glance: Cats take lead in 14th but can’t hold onto it

CATS TAKE LEAD IN 14TH BUT CAN’T HOLD ONTO IT

Highlight: The River Cats took the lead in the top of the 14th inning on Jose Martinez’s sacrifice fly, but the Rainers answered with two runs in the home half for a 4-3 victory Sunday at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, Wash. Tacoma first baseman Jesus Montero singled in Xavier Henry for the winning run.

Gem wasted: River Cats starter Drew Pomeranz was solid, allowing two earned runs in eight innings with eight strikeouts in a no-decision. The left-hander allowed eight hits and two walks.

Small ball: In a game that featured 26 hits, one was for extra bases. River Cats shortstop Andy Parrino had a double, his 19th of the season. Four Cats had multihit games, led by first baseman Daric Barton, who was 3 for 7. Parrino, second baseman Jake Elmore and designated hitter Shane Peterson had two hits apiece.

Today: River Cats RHP Matt Buschmann (6-5, 5.23 ERA) vs. Tacoma RHP Erasmo Ramirez (2-4, 4.12), 11:35 a.m., Cheney Stadium, Tacoma, Wash.
