WEST SACRAMENTO - It was a good day for pitching at Raley Field on Sunday, as Sacramento starter Travis Banwart dueled with Omaha hurler Anthony Lerew. Neither starter allowed a run, but the River Cats' bullpen faltered in a 2-1 loss. The loss dropped Sacramento to two games back in the division race. We have photos from the game inside...

On a perfect day for baseball at Raley Field on Sunday, Sacramento right-hander Travis Banwart dueled with Omaha righty Anthony Lerew. Both pitchers would come out of the game with successful starts, but Lerew would be the winner in a 2-1 battle. Banwart tossed six scoreless frames, striking out four and walking two (one intentionally), but it wasn't enough, as Lerew threw eight scoreless innings, striking out seven. Sacramento would get a solo homerun from Dallas McPherson (15) in the bottom of the ninth, but Omaha held on for a 2-1 win.

We have photos from the game.
