Pro baseball

Bees 10, River Cats 9

The Sacramento River Cats (23-31) fell for the third time in four games, losing to the Salt Lake Bees (27-27) on center fielder Jo Adell’s walk-off single in Thursday’s series opener. 

After dropping the final three games of their last series in Las Vegas, two on walk-offs, the River Cats had the chance at a fresh start, taking a 9-7 lead into the final frame. With two outs, no one on and a two-run lead, right-hander Trevor Gott  could not find the last out. Third baseman Preston Palmeiro’s home run, followed by a walk, double and an intentional walk, set up Adell’s game-winner. 

The ninth inning put a damper on an otherwise strong showing for Sacramento, which included three-run home runs from designated hitter Joe McCarthy and third baseman Arismendy Alcántara. 

One game after McCarthy set a new career high, the lefty reached the 10-home run peak for the first time in his professional career with a first-inning shot to break the scoreless tie.
