The Tri-City ValleyCats were sloppy in the field Saturday against the Connecticut Tigers.

The ’Cats committed seven errors, leading to five unearned runs in a 9-3 New York-Penn League loss at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium.

It was an error that snapped a 2-2 tie in the fourth inning. After a one-out triple by Steven Fuentes, Jacob Kapstein hit a grounder to third baseman J.D. Davis, who threw the ball away. Fuentes scored, and Kapstein went to third. Ismael Salgado drove home Kapstein with a single.

Davis committed two errors in the game, as did catcher Alfred Gonzalez. Also making errors were shortstop Mott Hyde, reliever Kirshwan Holley and second baseman Nick Tanielu.

The Tigers collected 14 hits.

The two teams close out the three-game series today at 5 p.m.
