Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: Pomeranz, relievers handcuff Sky Sox

Highlight: Drew Pomeranz and three relievers combined to allow one run and Anthony Aliotti drove in the go-ahead run as the River Cats downed the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 4-1 on Friday at Raley Field.

Hits keep coming: Sacramento’s Nick Buss extended his hitting streak to 21 games with a single in the first inning.

Shortstop status: The A’s recalled Andy Parrino for the third time this season. To replace Parrino, infielder Wade Kirkland was transferred from Advanced-A Stockton.

All in the family: Sky Sox reliever Josh Roenicke is from Nevada Union High School. His father, Gary, played 12 seasons in the majors. His uncle, Ron, is a former major leaguer now managing the Milwaukee Brewers. His brothers, Jarett and Jason, played minor-league ball. His brother-in-law is Ian Desmond of the Washington Nationals.

Today: River Cats RHP Arnold Leon (10-6, 5.39 ERA) vs. Oklahoma City TBA, 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
