Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Verrett goes eight strong to beat Cats

• Highlight: Logan Verrett pitched eight innings of one-run ball and Matt den Dekker homered to lead the Las Vegas 51s past the River Cats 4-2 on Monday night at Raley Field.

• Aces closing: The Reno Aces beat El Paso 4-3 to cut the River Cats’ lead to two games in the Pacific Northern Division. The last time the River Cats saw their lead dwindle to two games was July 26.

• More Burns D: Following Sunday’s run-saving diving catch, the Cats’ Billy Burns made a one-out diving catch in center field, this one resulting in a double play to save a run in the third inning.

• Top Cats: Shane Peterson and Nick Buss rank first and second, respectively, in hits in the Pacific Coast League. Peterson has 143 hits and Buss 128.

• Today: River Cats RHP Deck McGuire (1-0, 0.00 ERA) vs. Las Vegas 51s RHP Rafael Montero (5-3, 3.68), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
