Inland Empire dropped a 9-8 decision to High Desert in 12 innings and Great Lakes used a two-run single in the ninth to beat Fort Wayne 7-6. Ogden won their seventh in a row 6-5 behind Jon Dutton, the DSL Dodgers smacked the Yankees 13-3 and the GSL Dodgers were not scheduled

. River Cats walk away With Win
The 51s saw their pennant hopes take a hit in a 10-inning, 8-7 loss to first-place Sacramento. Las Vegas pitchers issued a staggering 10 free passes in the game.

Benefiting from the 10 walks and 22 total baserunners, Sacramento extended its lead in the Pacific Coast Lead to 6 1/2 games and with only two games remaining with the RiverCats, Las Vegas can hope for only a split in the four game series.

Despite all the charity, the 51s were still in the game, leading 7-6 in the ninth inning before reliever Tanyon Sturtze allowed the tying run.

In the 10th, reliever Francisco Felix (0-1) issued a leadoff walk, a flyout to deep center that allowed the runner to advance to second and an RBI single.

Vegas had one last chance in the bottom of the 10th when Luis Maza lived on an error but a double play ended the threat, the game and, perhaps, Las Vegas' chance for a playoff berth.

Starter Miguel Pinango allowed eight hits and walked five in five innings, leaving with two men on base and no outs in the top of the sixth inning.

Dwayne Pollok and Greg Miller followed Sturtze and each allowed a run.

Designated hitter John Lindsey had another big day, joining Mitch Jones in back-to-back home runs, giving him four homers in three games and 24 for the season.

Maza knocked in three runs and René Rivera had a pair of RBIs.

Sacramento will send Vincent Mazzaroto the mound to face Heath Totten today.

66ers Muff Chances to Win Inland Empire led 6-4 into the eighth and High Desert tied the game. The 66ers then took a 7-6 lead in the 10th and again High Desert tied it up. A run in the 12th didn't hold up either and this time the Mavericks scored two to win 9-8.

In fact, the 66ers also led 1-0, 3-2, and 6-4 at one point in the game.

Bridger Hunt doubled and scored in the first inning on Drew Locke's sac fly for an early 1-0 lead. Tommy Giles walked and Matt Berezay singled before Austin Gallagher smacked his 32nd double in the fourth and Jaime Pedroza's sac fly made it 3-2. In the sixth Gallagher walked with two out and Pedroza's homer made it 5-4, then Hunt's first homer of the year boosted the lead to 6-4.

Giles 18th homer put Inland Empire up 7-6 and in the 10th, Berezay doubled and scored on Scott Van Slyke's sac fly in the 12th. None of the leads lasted.

Four 66er errors didn't make it easy for the pitchers during the game. Luis Vasquez started and allowed three runs in four. Brandon Tuten gave up a run in the fifth and Dave Pfeiffer allowed two in the eighth. Javy Guerra blew a save in the 10th and Matt Sartor allowed the winning run in the 12th and slipped to 0-3.

Pedrozia knocked in three runs with a single and a homer. Hunt singled, doubled and homered, while Berezay and Chris Laura had a pair of hits each.

Inland Empire slipped in to third place, 3 1/2 games behind league-leading Lancaster.

Loons Edge Fort Wayne 7-6
In a game that began Friday evening and did not end until early morning Saturday, the Loons came from behind twice and narrowly hung on in a wild ninth inning for a 7-6 victory over Fort Wayne.

The game was played in 3:33 and was preceded by an 1:28 minute rain delay in front of a crowd of 5,677 at Memorial Stadium.  

The Loons trailed by a run in the top of the ninth inning against the league saves leader Jackson Quezada. With one out, Erik Kanaby drew a walk and advanced on a wild pitch. Jovanny Rosario singled to right. Following an intentional walk to Andrew Lambo a balk allowed the tying run to score. Eduardo Perez followed with a two-run single to give the Loons a 7-5 lead.  

In the bottom half of the inning reliever Miguel Ramirez walked the first two batters he faced before a tailor-made double play ball was booted by Parker Dalton. With the bases loaded and none out, a fielder's choice brought in the first run. A walk re-loaded the bases but Ramirez finally closed it out with a strikeout and a fly ball to left.  

Garrett White started and allowed a pair of runs in five innings, leaving with a 4-2 lead. Luis Ferreras gave the lead back in the seventh and before the three-run ninth Blake Brannon (1-0) worked 1.2 hitless innings to earn his first decision. Ramriez survived for his 17th save.

Kanaby led the Loons with three hits. Rosario and Lambo added two runs each.  

The Loons continue their four-game series in Fort Wayne today. Right-hander Josh Lindblom (0-0, 1.93 ERA) will start for the Loons against lefty Cory Luebke (2-2, 3.47).

Raptors Win Seventh Straight
The Ogden team bus should have one of those warnings signs on the side of it that reads "Caution: Radioactive Material."

The Raptors rolled up their seventh straight win, dumping Missoula 6-5 to hang on to the South Division lead with a 9-3 record.

On an evening designated "Grateful Dead Night" it was the Raptor fans who were filled with gratitude as Ogden banged out 10 hits, jumping into a 6-0 lead on the strength of two runs in the first inning and four more in the fourth.

Ogden also got a strong performance from starter Jon Dutton (6-2), who was perfect through the first three innings. He went five, allowing just one run on four hits. He walked two and struck out three.

Javier Solano and Steve Smith held the lead and Luis Garcia picked up his sixth save of the year in eight opportunities with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Leadoff hitter Dee Gordon started thing with an infield single. With two out, Nick Buss knocked Gordon in with a single to left and later scored on a bases loaded walk to Kyle Orr.

In the fourth inning Gordon slugged a two-run triple off the wall in center field and Tony Delmonico's two-run homer (#5) gave the Raptors a 6-0 advantage.

Missoula scored five runs, including a two-run home run, but it wasn't enough to keep them from being swept.

The windy night made anything hit in the air an adventure.

In the fifth inning Missoula's Alberto Diaz tried to score from second base after a single but was cut down at the plate on a great throw by left fielder Elian Herrera.

One inning later, right fielder Kyle Russell got into the act as well, throwing out a runner at the plate to end a two-run rally by the Osprey against Ogden reliever Javier Solano.

Gordon had three hits, including a double and a triple, to lead the Raptors. Delmonico and Buss added a pair each.
