Fort Worth Cats lose, but Franco gets first extra base hit

Julio Franco, at age 55, continues to hit in his third game out of retirement.

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.
