AAA: Las Vegas 4, Sacramento 3

It was a tough loss for the River Cats, as the bullpen blew things in the final inning.  Sacramento took the lead on an RBI double by Joey Bart in the first inning, that came very close to two runs if Jason Krizan hadn’t been thrown out at home.  Krizan would knock in a run in the third, and Jason Vosler followed with an RBI single to put Sacramento up 3-2.  That held until the 9th, when Trevor Gott gave up a 2-run home run with two out in the bottom of the 9th that gave Las Vegas the walk-off win.

  • Joey Bart picked a double as his only hit of the day, giving him nine on the season in Triple-A, with eight home runs.  Bart has a batting line of .344/.407/.595 in 34 games at Sacramento.
