Outfielder Nick Buss singled and slugged his 2nd home run, while third baseman Alden Carrithers tripled in a pair of runs. Outfielder Shane Peterson collected 3 hits to raise his average to .310, drove in a run in the River Cats’ big 4-run 5th, and made an impressive diving catch in center field to prevent extra bases in the top of the 3rd and help Sacramento win its seventh straight on Tuesday.
