Coming into tonight, Sacramento was 0-21 when trailing at home after eight innings. Tonight however, the River Cats rallied to score the game's final four runs from the seventh inning on in their third-longest game this season.
Sacramento first mounted their comeback in the ninth thanks Ryan Lollis' RBI-single, which scored Ali Castillo to tie the game at six. Lollis once again was the catalyst in the 12th, leading off the inning with a double before scoring on Brown's walk-off single. With the win, the River Cats improved their record to 5-4 in extra innings and 3-1 at home.
