Freese, Phelps' homers not enough for Redbirds


Home runs by Josh Phelps and David Freese were not quite enough help for the Triple-A affiliate Memphis Redbirds to overcome the Sacramento River Cats yesterday.

Phelps went 3-for-4 in the game. Freese went 2-for-4, also hitting a double.

Tyler Greene went 3-for-5 with a double, collecting two RBIs.

The Redbirds actually outhit the River Cats 11-10, but the 7-6 final was the "bottom line" in the contest.
