Sacramento River Cats

River Cats glance: One-run victory puts River Cats a win away from PCL Division crown

• Highlight: Alden Carrithers’ bases-loaded groundout in the eighth inning scored the go-ahead run, and closer Jeremy McBryde got the final three outs as the River Cats edged the Reno Aces 5-4 on Saturday night at Raley Field. The River Cats are one win away from the Pacific Northern Division title.

• He delivers: Daric Barton brought the Cats back from a 3-1 deficit with a bases-loaded double in the third.

• Did it again: For the third straight night, the River Cats were behind before they got to the plate. The Aces scored three runs in their first at-bat Thursday, two Friday and three unearned Saturday.

• Aces situation: Reno must win the final two games to win the division.

• Today: River Cats RHP Matt Buschmann (9-6, 4.24) vs. Reno Aces RHP Mike Bolsinger (8-3, 3.93), 5:05 p.m., Raley Field.
