Sacramento River Cats’ Casey Kelly Keeps Dorados Close But Game Slips Away Late

Sands, Gomez each collect two hits in 6-2 loss 

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA — Right-hander Casey Kelly allowed just one earned run in six and a third innings but the Sacramento River Cats (43-59) dropped game one of the series 6-2 to the Omaha Storm Chasers (45-56).

Kelly made it four consecutive games pitching at least six innings with his solid outing on Tuesday, and if it weren’t for the three runs that scored in the second inning, two of which were unearned, he had a shot at a third win in his last four outings.

The River Cats got within a run when first baseman Jerry Sands scored on shortstop Orlando Calixte’s groundout. But Sacramento failed to reach base in the final two frames while the bullpen surrendered a trio of additional runs.

Among the club’s seven baserunners on Tuesday were two hits from Sands, as well as two from second baseman Miguel Gomez.

Right-hander Shaun Anderson (0-0, 3.60) will be making his Raley Field debut on Wednesday after his Triple-A introduction last week in Fresno. The Storm Chasers will counter with righty Trevor Oaks (6-4, 2.12). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (PT).

Sacramento River Cats’ Kelby Tomlinson Collects Three Hits As Team Reaches All-Star Break

Rogers continues dominant stretch of relief work 

RENO, NV — The Sacramento River Cats (39-51) reached base 13 times but scored just two runs in an 8-2 loss to the Reno Aces (42-48) as the Pacific Coast League heads into their three-day All-Star break.

Shortstop Kelby Tomlinson recorded three of the team’s nine hits, while two other top-of-the-order guys — Gregor Blanco and Miguel Gomez — tallied two hits each. But despite all the baserunners, Aces lefty Alex Young was able to keep Sacramento off the board aside from one run during his six frames.

In his second outing as a River Cat, right-hander Jordan Johnson lasted 3.2 innings surrendering three runs on five hits and three walks. Submariner Tyler Rogers prevented the game from getting out of hand when Johnson loaded the bases with two outs in the fourth. He logged one of his three strikeouts as part of 1.1 perfect innings to lower his ERA to 1.59, and has now kept the opposition scoreless in 21 of his last 22 appearances.

The River Cats will return from the break to begin a four-game home series with the Salt Lake Bees starting on Thursday. Both starting pitchers have yet to be announced. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (PT). Catch all of the action live online at rivercats.com, on the MiLB First Pitch app, and on the air on Money 105.FM.

Down Eight, Sacramento River Cats Mount Comeback But Fall Short

Shaw homers for fourth time in last six games

 RENO, NV — Trailing 8-0 in the fourth inning, the Sacramento River Cats (38-49) fought their way back to eventually tie the game at nine apiece before losing in the bottom of the ninth to the Reno Aces (40-47).

Outfielder Chris Shaw continued his power surge by clubbing his fourth home run in his last six games — a solo shot in the sixth inning that brought the River Cats within one.

But the big rally came an inning earlier as Sacramento scraped together five runs on six hits, including a solo home run from third baseman Ryder Jones and a pair of two-run singles from catcher Trevor Brown and second baseman Miguel Gomez.

Unfortunately, after Jones tied it in the eighth inning on his fourth hit of the game, the Aces loaded the bases with no outs and walked off on a Yasmany Tomas sacrifice fly.

Right-hander Casey Kelly (7-6, 5.24) will be on the bump for the River Cats looking to help the club snap their current three-game losing streak. Reno will counter with righty Taylor Clarke (8-6, 4.26). First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. (PT).

ALBUQUERQUE, NM Chase d’Arnaud hit one out for the second consecutive night, helping the Sacramento River Cats (35-44) get back on track with a 4-3 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes (39-39).
