SACRAMENTO — For the second straight night, Sacramento scored six runs over the first two innings, as the River Cats cruised to a 10-1 win over the Salt Lake Bees on Friday night.
The Bees took a 1-0 lead in the first on an RBI single by Luis Rodriguez, but Sacramento answered with two runs in the bottom of the first on three walks, a fielder's choice and a throwing error by shortstop Tommy Field.
Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes, who is with Sacramento on an injury rehab assignment, added a three run homer in the fourth, as the Bees have now lost three consecutive games and have dropped seven of their last nine.
Bill Buckner (3-1) struggled with his control, as he walked a season high eight batters in just 3 2/3 innings. Buckner allowed nine runs, eight earned, on four hits. Offensively, the Bees managed just five hits. Luis Rodriguez led the way with two singles and one run batted in. Tommy Field, Bill Hall and Roberto Lopez each added one hit.
