Chavez, 51s top River Cats

Angel Chavez’s RBI single in the seventh inning snapped a 4-4 tie Monday night as the 51s beat the Sacramento River Cats 5-4 in a Pacific Coast League game in Sacramento, Calif.

A.J. Ellis walked to lead off the seventh against Sacramento reliever Jeff Gray, and Chin-Lung Hu’s sacrifice bunt moved Ellis to second. One out later, Chavez singled to center field to bring in Ellis.

Las Vegas relievers Dwayne Pollok and Mike Koplove then allowed just one baserunner over three scoreless innings to close out the victory for the 51s (53-50).

Sacramento jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning on a Casey Rogowski RBI ground-rule double and a Cliff Pennington two-run single off Las Vegas starter Heath Totten (3-2).

But the 51s answered with two runs in the third inning and two more in the fourth. In the third, Xavier Paul had an RBI ground-rule double, and Chavez’s sacrifice fly scored Hu.

John Lindsey led off the fourth with a home run for the 51s, and Ellis had a two-out RBI double to make it 4-3.

Sacramento tied it on Travis Buck’s RBI single in the fifth.
