Watt a Great Start for Michael

Michael Watt pitched Ogden to a complete-game 4-3 win but it took a late, three run rally in the eighth inning to carry it off. The Gulf Coast Dodgers lost twice to the Mets and dropped into second place in their division and the Dominican Summer League Dodgers dropped a 4-3 decision to the Red Sox.

Watt Works Complete Game
Michael Watt (7-4), the Dodgers second round pick in the 2007 draft, became the first pitcher in the Pioneer League to throw a complete game and only the second pitcher in the Dodgers' minor league system to go nine innings. Bryan Morris, since traded to Cleveland, is the only other with a CG behind his name in the record books.

But Watt needed a three-run rally in the last of the eighth inning to collect a win. Ogden trailed Idaho Falls 3-1 when Kyle Russell led off with a double and Travis Vetters drew a walk. Both runners moved up on Nick Buss' long fly to center.

Pedro Baez whacked a double to score both Russell and Vetters to tie the game and with two out, Matt Wallach added the third double of the inning, a shot to right field to score Baez and give the Raptors their first lead of the series.

Watt, who threw 95 pitches during the evening, used the last 10 to retire the Chukars in order in the ninth.

Ogden had runners on base in every inning but could only manage a single run over the first seven. In the fourth Buss walked and scored on Clay Calfee's double to put the Raptors on the board.

The win snapped the Chukars' four-game winning streak and Ogden improved to 16-9 in the second half and 35-28 overall.

Watt allowed eight hits, three earned runs, seven strikeouts and no walks. He has won three of his last four and seven of his last nine outings. His seventh win ties him with teammate Jon Dutton and two Orem pitchers for the most in the league.

The left-hander had previously thrown 102 pitches in a game against Helena on Aug. 12. The most by a Raptors pitcher this season is 116 by Dutton on Aug. 19.

Devaris Gordon went 3-for-4 and Baez was 2-for-4 with two RBIs for the Raptors who rapped out six doubles in the win.

The Raptors and the Chukars meet again this afternoon before Ogden travels to Idaho Falls for a pair of games.

Late Rally Dumps DSL Dodgers
The Dominican Dodgers came within one out of a win, allowing four runs in the last two innings to erase their 3-0 margin and carry the Red Sox to a 4-3 victory.

The Dodgers took a 3-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh and reliever Jose Dominguez loaded the bases with none out on three walks and a hit batter to force in a run.

Rogelito Chery took over and got a 1-2-3 double play before a single to center gave the Sox the tying runs. In the last of the eighth, Cherry fanned the first two batters, then hit one with a pitch. An attempted pickoff throw went wild and a single drove in the game winner.

The Dodgers scored once in the sixth on Marlon Sucre's sac fly and made it 3-0 in the seventh when a pair of errors allowed one run and Wilner Charles doubled in another.

Antonio Castillo started and worked five scoreless innings, allowing two hits. Chery (3-3) took the loss.

Charles finished with three hits and an RBI. Rafael Aybar added two singles.
