River Cats tie franchise record with 24 hits

BOX SCORES: SAC / RIC / SJ / AUG

The Sacramento River Cats had so many hits, that three players were one hit away from the cycle. Grant Green, Miguel Olivo, and Ramiro Peña tallied three hits each, but all fell short of the feat as the River Cats won 14-1 while tying a franchise record for hits (24). Green was the only player to get a crack at completing the cycle, striking out looking in the top of the ninth, while Olivo and Peña didn't come around in the order again before the game's conclusion. All nine players in the lineup recorded two or more hits.

In 2005, the River Cats, then affiliated with the Oakland A's, had 24 hits at Las Vegas, which is also where the organization set its single-game runs record (23) in 2004. 

Ty Blach pitched and had probably his best outing of 2016. He set a season-high in innings pitched (7.2), pitches thrown (98), and looking strikes (22) while walking a season-low one hitter. He gave up just one unearned run on six hits while striking out three.

OTHER NOTES

— C.J. Hinojosa hit his second home run of the year for the San Jose Giants, going 1-for-3 and "dropping" his average to .380. At the time, when Hinojosa homered in his first plate appearance of the game, he had registered a hit in seven of his previous eight at-bats. Jose Vizcaino, Jr. went 2-for-4 with a double while Johneshwy Fargas was caught stealing for the seventh time this year.

Jose Casilla was called up to the Sacramento River Cats from Richmond, who reinstated sinkerballer Tyler Mizenko from the 7-day disabled list. The 26-year-old Casilla was in his third straight stint with Richmond. He'll serve as a middle reliever with long-man Vin Mazzaro heading to Queens to join the big club.
