River Cats Game Report

It was a typical Pacific Coast League game as the Sacramento River Cats defeated the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 10-3 at Raley Field.
Charlie Culberson lead off the game with a homerun on the third pitch of the game. That was all the Sky Sox would score until the ninth as the River Cats hit Jeff Manship hard all night long. River Cats catcher Stephen Vogt hit a long homerun to open the scoring for the River Cats.
Then the River Cats bats feasted on Sky Sox pitching.
The 10 millionth fan walked through the gates tonight. He was interviewed on the Jumbo Tron. He acted very disinterested. If I was the 10 millionth fan I would have been delighted. He was a season ticket holder too.
A very touching moment happened at the ceremonial first pitch. A young boy, whose father is serving in Afghanistan, threw out the first pitch. The boy made a great pitch. He and his mom started walking off the mound. The PA announcer told the boy to go meet the catcher. It was his father, who just came home. Tears all around the mound. That moment made me proud to be an American.
