Cats glance: Sky Sox tee off on Cats, Straily in 14-6 romp - Sacramento Bee

• Turning point: Colorado Springs, which already had scored six runs in the third inning, scored six more in the seventh to answer a three-run River Cats rally as the Sky Sox went on to a 14-6 win Tuesday night. Wilkin Castillo hit a three-run triple as part of the seventh-inning rally that saw the Sky Sox send 12 men to the plate.

• Who's hot: Former El Camino High School and Sacramento State standout Tim Wheeler went 4 for 5 with two doubles and two RBIs for Colorado Springs.

• Who's not: River Cats starter Dan Straily suffered the loss, giving up eight hits and six earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. Straily entered the game with a 5-2 record and a 1.40 ERA.

• What's up: With six games left, the River Cats lead Las Vegas by 5 1/2 games in the Pacific South Division. A Cats win or Las Vegas loss would give them the division title.

• Today: RHP Bruce Billings (7-6, 4.03 ERA) vs. Colorado Springs RHP Rob Scahill (9-11, 5.98), 5:05 p.m., Colorado Springs, Colo.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
