Farmhand Of The Game:

Designated Hitter Kila Ka’aihue

(2 Doubles / 2 RBIs)



Worth Noting: Designated hitter Kila Ka’aihue was the big hitting star for Sacramento in Game #5 on Sunday, doubling twice and driving in a pair of runs for the River Cats. Top pitching prospect Sonny Gray got the Game #5 start and held Reno scoreless over the first 4 innings. Sacramento held a 3-0 lead heading into the bottom of the 5th inning, when Gray surrendered 3 runs to allow Reno to tie the game. The former 1st-round draft pick exited after allowing 3 runs on 8 hits and striking out 5 in 6 innings of work. He was followed by right-hander Merkin Valdez, who allowed 4 runs in the 7th inning, which proved to be enough for Reno to clinch the series and end Sacramento’s season on Sunday. The River Cats finished the 2012 regular season with a PCL-best record of 86-58.
