Adames homers, reaches base four times in 9-1 win
FRESNO, Calif. — The Sacramento River Cats (56-47) cruised to a 9-1 victory over the Fresno Grizzlies (52-51) on Wednesday night thanks to six late-inning runs.
The club won their season-high fifth straight game to extend their Pacific Northern Division lead to four games – the largest margin it has been all year. Third baseman Cristhian Adames reached base four times and was retired for the first time in the ballgame during the ninth inning. He launched his fourth home run of the season while also adding a double, a single, and a walk to raise his batting average to .316.
Right-hander Yoanys Quiala tossed five one-hit innings and a trio of left-handers came out of the bullpen to pitch four scoreless frames as the Sacramento pitching staff combined to allow a season-low two hits.
Right-hander Dereck Rodriguez (2-0, 5.40) is set to make the start Thursday night as the River Cats go for their second series sweep of this road trip. The Grizzlies will counter with fellow righty Wil Crowe (0-0, 3.38). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (PT).
