Pettyjohn allows one run in shortened game

Exeter native Adam Pettyjohn dominated Colorado Springs batters on Aug. 10 as he threw a complete game and allowed just six hits and struck out six as the Sacramento River Cats downed the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, 5-1, in Pacific Coast League action.

Pettyjohn improved his record with the River Cats to 2-0 on the season.

Sacramento's Mike Rouse supplied the bulk of the River Cats offense going 3- for-3 with two RBI. Mike Rivera went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Freddie Bynum, Mike Edwards and Graham Koonce had two hits apiece for Sacramento.

Colorado Springs scored their lone run on a Rene Reyes home run in the bottom of the seventh.

Starter Alex Herrera took the loss for the Sky Sox giving up three earned runs in five innings pitched. His record dropped to 4-3.

The River Cats currently lead the PCL's Southern Division by 6 1/2 games over Tucson. As of press time Colorado Springs was seven games behind in the PCL's Central Division.

Pettyjohn was scheduled to start on Monday against Hideo Nomo, who was pitching for the Las Vegas 51's in a rehab start for the Dodgers, but was bumped because Ahtletics reliever Arthur Rhodes was penciled in for a rehab assignment of his own.
