SACRAMENTO (AP) — Jim Adduci hit a run-scoring single in the second inning, leading the Iowa Cubs to a 7-4 win over the Sacramento River Cats on Tuesday.

The single by Adduci started the scoring in a four-run inning and gave the Cubs a 2-1 lead. Later in the inning, Colin Rea hit an RBI double and then scored on an error.

Following the big inning, the River Cats tied the game in the bottom of the inning when Mike Gerber hit a two-run home run and Henry Ramos scored on a wild pitch.

The Cubs took the lead for good in the fifth when Phillip Evans hit a solo home run.

Evans homered and singled twice, scoring two runs for Iowa.

Iowa right-hander Rea (8-1) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing four runs on eight hits over six innings. Opposing starter Yoanys Quiala (3-3) took the loss in the Pacific Coast League game after giving up five runs and five hits over five innings.
