FRESNO, Calif. – The Sacramento River Cats evened the series at one apiece with a 1-0 win in Fresno Wednesday night. Sacramento’s second shutout win of the season – their only other shutout was on Opening Day – was sparked by a phenomenal performance from starting pitcher Nik Turley and closed by Mike Broadway.

Turley was a major factor in the shutout, putting together his third quality start of the season. He finished his evening with no runs on 2 hits and 1 walk with 4 strikeouts in 6 innings. Turley retired 12 consecutive batters, spanning the second through sixth innings. With the win, Turley moves to 2-2 on the season with a 6.59 ERA.

The bullpen combined for three scoreless innings behind Turley, highlighted by the return of Mike Broadway to the Sacramento relief corp. In his first appearance back from San Francisco, the hard throwing right-hander tossed a scoreless ninth, retiring Grizzlies 1-2-3 as he picked up his sixth save of the season.

Broadway spent the last week with the San Francisco Giants, making his Major League debut on June 13th vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks. He threw a scoreless inning, including retiring All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.

River Cats pitchers allowed just two hits in the win, a new season low. Prior to tonight, the fewest hits allowed was three, also against Fresno.

Sacramento put leadoff hitters on base in six innings and collected ten hits from six players. The River Cats jumped out to a 1-0 lead after starting off the third inning with a double from Ryan Lollis, who was eventually sent home on a wild pitch from Fresno’s Jake Buchanan.

After five scoreless innings, the River Cats scored again, thanks to another Lollis double. The designated hitter led off the ninth with a double to right and later scored on Adam Duvall’s single, putting the River Cats up 2-0.

Matt Cain (0-2, 4.50) will make what is expected to be his final rehab start in tomorrow night’s series finale at Fresno. In his last outing, Cain threw 6.2 innings and gave up 5 hits, 2 earned runs, and no walks while striking out 6. Fresno will counter with Brady Rodgers (5-3, 4.55). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (PT).
