The Sacramento River Cats are gearing up for their home opener Friday night at Raley Field.  

The AAA minor league affiliate of the Oakland A's is hosting Salt Lake City, first pitch set for 7:05 p.m.

Last season, Sacramento finished with a record of 79-and-65, good for second place in the Pacific Coast League's Southern Division.  

So far this year, the team is off to a three-and-five start after an eight-game road trip through Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.
