Sacramento Photos: Champs Past & Present
The River Cats earned that 83rd win in impressive fashion on Saturday night in front of three key members of the '89 World Champion Oakland A's - Dave Stewart, Dave Henderson and Tony Phillips. After a pre-game celebration honoring the '89 champions, the River Cats pounced all over Giants prospect Kevin Pucetas and the Fresno Grizzlies, scoring nine runs in the first two innings to cruise to a 9-5 win.
"[Pucetas] has been one of their best pitchers all season, so it was nice to see our guys get some key hits against him," Sacramento manager Tony DeFrancesco said after the game.
Pucetas would last only 1.2 innings, allowing nine runs on eight hits, two walks and two hit-by-pitches. Clayton Mortensen got the start for Sacramento and worked through some early rough innings to earn his ninth win of the season. He threw seven innings, allowing three earned runs on 11 hits with three strike-outs and a walk.
