The Fort Worth Cats fell to 1-2 on the young season, losing 4-3 to the Rio Grande Valley WhiteWings in a United League Baseball game Thursday night at LaGrave Field.

Julio Franco, the 55-year-old former Texas Rangers standout, had his first extra base hit of the season, a double in the sixth inning. Franco came out of retirement to be a player-coach for the Cats through their opening nine-game homestand.

Adam Kam drove in two runs for the Cats, who wasted a late bases-loaded opportunity.

The Cats close their season-opening four-game series with the WhiteWings with a game tonight.
