The Edinburg Roadrunners got to Fort Worth starter Cole Stephens for three runs in the first inning, backing an effective start from Justin Klipp and the Roadrunners survived another four-error night to beat the Cats 4-3 at Edinburg Stadium.

Stephens settled down to throw 5 1/3 innings and hold the Roadrunners to four runs, but the early damage was too much for the Cats to overcome.

Tomochika Tsuboi and Agustin Septimo started the game with consecutive singles off Stephens, and advanced on a groundout before Carlton Salters’ RBI single drove them home. The next batter, Eric Gonzalez, got aboard on a Cats’ fielding error, and was driven home on a single from Chris Christopolous.

Fort Worth scored its first run in the third on catcher Shelby Ford’s sacrifice fly, but the Roadrunners added a run in the fourth to take back the three-run lead.

Down 4-1 in the fifth, the Cats’ Kori Melo walked and after a fielding error, advanced to second, setting up consecutive RBI singles from Aljay Davis and Ford to bring the Cats within one.

But Klipp got Greg Bachman swinging to end the inning, and the Cats wouldn’t threaten again. Klipp threw 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs — one earned — and walked three in the win.

The Cats and Roadrunners will play Game 3 of the four-game series at 7 tonight at Edinburg Baseball Stadium.
