First Baseman Nate Freiman

(Grand Slam)

First baseman Nate Freiman had a big night in Sacramento’s home opener on Friday. With the River Cats down by 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning and the bases loaded, Freiman slugged a grand slam to lead Sacramento to victory in front of the hometown fans. Designated hitter Jake Goebbert and outfielder Shane Peterson each had a pair of hits and drove in a run for the River Cats. RHP Matt Buschmann was a little shaky in his second start for Sacramento, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits over just 3 1/3 innings, while RHP Jose Flores struck out 5 in 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief. And despite giving up 2 runs in the top of the 8th, LHP Joe Savery ended up walking away with the win after Freiman’s big blow, while RHP Fernando Nieve picked up the save after tossing a scoreless 9th for the Cats.

Second Baseman Chad Pinder

(Home Run / 2 Doubles / 2 RBIs)

It was a big night for Stockton second baseman Chad Pinder, who played a key role in the Ports’ 18-inning win on Thursday night. Last year’s 3rd overall draft pick for the A’s hit a 2-run homer in the 5th inning to tie the game, and doubled to lead off the bottom of the 18th and ultimately scored the winning run when outfielder Billy McKinney singled to bring him home from second and finally bring an end to the 5 hour and 27 minute home opener for Stockton on Thursday. McKinney had previously struck out 3 times in the game, as did designated hitter Ryon Healy, who went 0 for 8. Catcher Bruce Maxwell collected 3 hits, while first baseman Matt Olson singled, doubled and walked twice, third baseman Renato Nunez hit his second homer in as many games to put the Ports on the board in the 1st, and outfielder Bobby Crocker homered in the 9th to send the contest to extra innings. RHP Manny Correa started the game and allowed 4 runs in 6 innings of work, while RHP Nolan Sanburn surrendered 1 run in 2 innings of relief, RHPs Tucker Healy and Kris Hall each tossed 2 scoreless innings, converted outfielder Jeremy Barfield struck out 5 in 3 scoreless innings in his third pitching appearance for the Ports. Infielder Wade Kirkland came in to toss a scoreless 16th and 17th and outfielder Dusty Robinson, who’d doubled twice and driven in a run, pitched a scoreless 18th inning to earn the win.
