SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Sacramento River Cats rallied from a three-run deficit to edge the Salt Lake Bees 4-3 in 11 innings on Saturday night.
The Bees led 3-0 in the seventh when Sacramento scored two runs without the benefit of a hit thanks to four walks and a sacrifice fly.
In the ninth, pinch-hitter Nick Buss opened the inning by reaching on an error by shortstop Shawn O'Malley. He advanced to second on a sacrifice and eventually scored the tying run on another sacrifice fly.
After the Bees loaded the bases in the top of the 11th and didn't score, the River Cats' Alden Carrithers singled, stole second and after Andy Parrino walked, he scored the winning run on Shane Peterson's bunt single and a throwing error by pitcher Jeremy Berg (1-2).
The Bees had taken a 3-0 lead on a run-scoring fielder's choice by Taylor Lindsey in the fifth inning, an RBI single by Drew Heid in the sixth and a solo homer by Brennan Boesch in the seventh.
Salt Lake starting pitcher Wade LeBlanc pitched five scoreless innings with three strikeouts and three walks.
Drew Heid led the Bees with three hits and one RBI, as Salt Lake suffered its seventh straight loss.
