Davis Stays Hot But Sacramento River Cats Fall To Express

Newcomer from Twins has racked up five extra-base hits in three games

ROUND ROCK, Texas — The Sacramento River Cats (61-52) had the game slip away from them in the sixth inning as they dropped their second consecutive game to the Round Rock Express (67-45), this time by a final score of 7-3.

New outfielder Jaylin Davis, acquired from the Minnesota Twins in the Sam Dyson deal, continued his scorching-hot start to his River Cats tenure with a home run, a double, and a walk in four plate appearances. His third-inning groundout plated a run and tied the game at three, but that would be all for the River Cats offense on Sunday.

The River Cats had a chance to strike back in the sixth after the Express took a four-run lead, but failed to capitalize on a bases-loaded, no-out situation as a strikeout and a double play ended the threat.

Looking to salvage the series on Monday night for the River Cats will be right-hander Casey Meisner (2-0, 4.09). He’ll be squaring off with Express lefty LHP Framber Valdez (2-2, 2.22). First pitch is set for 5:05 p.m. (PT). Listen to all of the action live online at rivercats.com, on the MiLB First Pitch app, and on Money 105.5 FM (PT) beginning at 6:00 p.m. (PT).
