Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Reynold, Mazzoni fuel Las Vegas win

REYNOLDS, MAZZONI FUEL LAS VEGAS WIN

• Highlight: Matt Reynolds homered, doubled and singled twice, and Cory Mazzoni pitched six strong innings to lead the Las Vegas 51s past the River Cats 7-2 on Sunday evening at Raley Field.

• Turning point: Trailing 3-0 in the sixth inning, the River Cats loaded the bases with no outs. Then, Andy Parrino hit what looked to be a bloop single to left field. However, Kirk Nieuwenhuis fielded the ball and threw home for the force out. The 51s then turned a double play to get out of the inning unscathed.

• Moves: The A’s recalled first baseman Nate Freiman and sent reliever Evan Scribner back to the River Cats. The A’s also released catcher Luis Exposito and signed catcher Luis Martinez and added him to the River Cats’ roster.

• Today: River Cats RHP Arnold Leon (10-5, 4.87 ERA) vs. Las Vegas 51s RHP Logan Verrett (8-4, 4.79), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
