Lindsey, Raglani Homers boost 51s, Suns

John Lindsey knocked in four as Vegas beat Fresno 10-4. Ryan Raglani had a pair of homers as Jacksonville snuffed Mobile 8-2. Blake DeWitt had five hits as Inland Empire topped High Desert 7-6. Great Lakes outlasted Lansing 7-6. Ogden was buried under three, three-run homers and lost 9-3 and the Gulf Coast Dodgers drew rain again.

Vegas Dumps Fresno-- First baseman John Lindsey homered and drove in four runs as Las Vegas beat Fresno 10-4. Lindsey put the lid on a three-run first inning with a sacrifice fly and belted a two-run homer, his fifth, in the sixth. The 30-year-old first baseman is batting .338 (25-for-74) since being promoted to Triple-A on June 11.

Outfielder Delwyn Young went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and an RBI, falling a homer short of the cycle, while lifting his batting average to .332. He tripled in his first at-bat to extend his hitting streak to a dozen games and lined his Pacific Coast-leading 32nd double ahead of Lindsey's homer in the sixth.

Catcher Ben Davis went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and third baseman Andy LaRoche continued his renaissance with a homer leading off the fourth for 51s.

Starter William Juarez (4-3) gave up three runs on five hits with five strikeouts in five innings. Chris Fussell and Wesley Wright added a pair of innings each to close out the win.

"Young's bat's going to get him to the big leagues, and he's going to have to hit to stay in the big leagues," Las Vegas manager Lorenzo Bundy told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "He doesn't steal bases, and he's not a great defender. His bat's his ticket, there's no doubt about it."

Raglani's Home Runs Boost Suns-- Anthony Raglani banged a solo home run in the third inning and hit a two-run shot in the eighth to power Jacksonville past Mobile, 6-2 and snap the Bear's eight-game winning streak.

Raglani, despite leading the Suns (11-4) with 12 homers, had homered only once in his previous 32 games. He has hit eight of his dozen homers at the Baseball Grounds in Jacksonville. "I don't know why I've hit more here. It could be I get a little more juiced up knowing the crowd is behind you, cheering you on," he said.

Kevin Howard smacked an RBI single and A.J. Ellis delivered a two-run base hit in Jacksonville's three-run first inning.

Starter Michael Megrew (5-5) gave up two runs on six hits while tying his season high with eight strikeouts over five innings. The bullpen took over at that point and Ramon Troncoso fanned five in three perfect innings before Jonathan Meloan pitched a scoreless ninth.

The Suns will send right-hander Joey Norrito (4-0, 2.62) against BayBears right-hander Brooks Brown (1-0, 1.64) in the finale of the four-game series.

Hits and Fists Fly in Win-- Inland Empire (8-4) won on points over High Desert (3-9) by a 6-4 count on the main card of the evening. Fans who attended the game were treated to a boxing exhibition at no extra cost.

After the Sixers scored four in the first inning, Michael Rivera was plunked by a pitch, pointed at pitcher Aaron Jensen and when he dropped his glove, it invited a pushing and shoving match that cleared the benches.

In the seventh, Jamie Hoffman slid into shortstop Jeff Dominguez at second base and Dominguez pushed Hoffmann off of the bag. Again the benches were emptied and this time multiple fights broke out all over the field. Three players were ejected.

Almost lost in the Golden Gloves atmosphere was the fact that Blake DeWitt had a magnificent game, collecting five hits, scoring twice and knocking in a run.

Despite allowing four runs in the third inning to tie the game, Marlon Arias (7-1) earned the win with relief help from Jesus Rodriguez who worked the final three, allowing only a single hit to save his second game.

Ryan Rogowski, Michael Rivera, DeWitt opened the game with singles and Russell Mitchell and Drew Locke each drove in one before Ivan De Jesus knocked in the final two.

The Mavericks scored four in the third but in the bottom of the inning, DeWitt singled and scored on Jamie Hoffmann's hit. De Jesus then drove in Hoffmann for a 6-2 lead.

Tonight the final game will feature a Fourth of July celebration with fireworks planned after the game not during it.

Loons Rally to Win-- Three times the Loons put on rallies, but the winner came quietly as outfielder Tommy Giles worked bases loaded walk to break a 6-6 tie, giving Great Lakes a 7-6 win and a split of the four game series with Lansing.

Great Lakes scored three in the bottom of the first to erase a 2-0 Lugnut lead; then scored three more in the sixth with catcher Juan Apodaca's single giving them a 6-5 lead. And after an error in the eighth tied the game yet again, Giles untied it without swinging his bat.

Starter Josh Wall went four innings and allowed seven hits, three runs and four walks before giving way to David Pfeiffer (2-0) who pitched four innings in relief allowing three runs --one earned-- and picked up the win. Miguel Ramirez earned his eighth save with a scoreless ninth.

Shortstop Adolpho Gonzalez and catcher Carlos Santana doubled and singled, while Perez had a pair of singles for the Loons.

Great Lakes improved to 3-8 and travel to Dayton to take on the Dragons for a first of a four-game series beginning tonight.

Three Homers, Nine Runs-- Three-run homers were the order of the night as Ogden pitching served up a trio to Idaho Falls, which went on to crush the Raptors 9-3 to pad their division lead.

Michael Gardner gave up a blast good for three in the second inning, then did the same in the third and Jon Haldis followed by repeating that in the sixth to give the Chukars all the runs they needed. The loss dropped the Raptors back to 7-7 and left them in a tie for second place with Orem, four games behind Idaho Falls.

Jaime Ortiz sent a solo shot out in the eight, his third of the season and added two singles to lead the Raptor offense. Both Jovanny Rosario and Jeremy Brown had two hits. --Bill Shelley.

Gulf Coast Dodgers-- There's something about playing in Holman Stadium that brings out the rain for the Dodgers. Rehabbing Chris Malone had retired the Marlins in 1-2-3 fashion in the top of the first when the rains came to halt proceedings and suspend the game. That was the second time in three tries that's it's happened to the Dodgers when they seek to get in a night game at the stadium. --Bill Shelley.
