River Cats Sink Chihuahuas in 11 Innings 5-4

Travis Ishikawa’s bases loaded single in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Sacramento River Cats a 5-4 win over the El Paso Chihuahuas in the first game of a four-game series Friday at Raley Field. It was the first extra-inning loss for the Chihuahuas in five tries this season.

El Paso starter Daniel McCutchen pitched five perfect innings to begin the game and was ahead 4-0 because of an early RBI double by Casey McElroy and three-run home run by Hunter Renfroe.

Sacramento scored twice in the sixth and once in the seventh to get within one, then tied the game when Mac Williamson hit a solo home run to left-center field with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The Chihuahuas had three extra base hits Friday and now have slugged extra base hits in 60 consecutive games. McCutchen has allowed only four earned runs in his last 31 innings. Renfroe nearly had two home runs on Friday but Williamson leaped at the wall to pull back a ball hit by Renfroe that would have landed in the right field bullpen.

Chihuahuas Bag River Cats 8-3; Dickerson’s Hit Streak Now at 29 Games

The El Paso Chihuahuas defeated the Sacramento River Cats 8-3 Tuesday and have now won seven of their last nine games. Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs in six innings in his third win of the season.

The game was tied 2-2 when the Chihuahuas rallied for four runs in the sixth inning on Hunter Renfroe’s RBI double and Jose Pirela’s first Chihuahuas’ home run, a three-run shot off the center field batter’s eye.

For the second time in four games, Alex Dickerson waited until the eighth inning to continue his hitting streak.

Dickerson was hitless through his first three plate appearances Tuesday, despite driving two line drives to center field, both of which were caught. He tapped a ball on the grass in between home plate and the pitcher’s mound in the eighth and arrived at first base at the same time as pitcher Braulio Lara’s low and errant throw.

The official scorer ruled it an infield hit to extend Dickerson’s hitting streak to 29 games.

Ryan Schimpf went 1-for-3 with a long home run onto the street behind the right field fence, his third homer in the last two games. Manuel Margot had three hits atop El Paso’s order for the second consecutive game.
