Rivercats Still Not There

In what was a long game last night the Rivercats showed they still have not jelled as a team.   We started out well - 1 in the first, 2 in the second, 4 in the fourth and 1 in the sixth.   Mortensen had a pretty good start pitching 6.2 inning but getting into trouble and being relieved by Marcus McBeth, who gave up a trio of runs in addition to the three he inherited.  Bowers and Ramirez pitched well in relief.  In the end we lost 9-8.

Carter got a home run and charged with an error (Cardenas got charged with a second and costly error which should have been Carter's).  Brown, who has struggled in the first part of the season, finally hit a very convincing home run.  To say that the four batters that McBeth pitched to was a rocky outing is an understatement.

In several previous seasons the Cats have taken a month or two to get into synch.  There were some highlights last night - but the end result was not up to par.
