River Cats bested by Chihuahuas in pitching duel

August 12, 2018 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Sacramento River Cats News Release

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - Both team's starting pitchers were impressive in Sunday's matinee, but it was the El Paso Chihuahuas (67-51) who eventually got to the Sacramento River Cats (47-72) bullpen for a 4-1 victory.

Righty Shaun Anderson, making his fifth start as a member of the River Cats, struck out seven in 5.1 one-run innings while Cal Quantrill whiffed six in his six one-run innings for El Paso. But while knotted up at one apiece in the eighth, reliever Derek Law surrendered three runs to the Chihuahuas on four hits and a walk.

The River Cats will hop on a bus and head to Reno, Nev. for a three-game series with the Aces. Right-hander Tyler Herb (1-5, 5.31) will get the nod from manager Dave Brundage while fellow righty Taylor Clarke will face the River Cats for the fourth time this season.
