Arizona, Dominican Dodgers Rally to Win

Ogden's Austin Yount knocked in four runs but Orem collected a 7-5 win. The Arizona Dodgers rallied for five runs in the final two innings, helped by six errors, to trip the Rangers 7-5. The Dominican Dodgers never led in the game until a wild pitch allowed Bladimir Franco to score the 14th, and winning run, in the last of the ninth.

Yount Drives in Four But Ogden Loses
Third baseman Austin Yount knocked in four runs but it wasn't enough and Oren collected a 7-5 win in Ogden. A five-run fifth inning put the Raptors at a big disadvantage and they could never overcome it.

The win was Orem's fourth in five games with Ogden in 2009, and spoiled the Raptors bid to reach the .500 mark for the first time this season.

Matt Magill (0-1), making his second start, allowed six runs, five earned,and took the loss. Luis Ferreras, Fredy Quintero and Jordan Roberts finished the game.

Trailing 7-1 the Raptors scored four times. Mario Songco and Chris Jacobs led off with singles and Pedro Guerrero reached on an error to load the bases. Lenell McGee singled in the first run of the inning and Yount ripped a two-out, bases-clearing double off the left field wall off to make it 7-5.

The Owlz added two insurance runs in the top of the eighth and the Raptors put three men on base in the eighth and ninth but couldn't drive any of them across the plate.

Young, who also had a run-scoring ground ball in the third inning, had only a single hit to go with his four RBI. Jacobs, Guerrero and McGee each had a pair of hits.

The Raptors will complete their five-game home stand tonight against the Owlz, before embarking on a four-game road-trip that begins Thursday in Orem.

AZ Dodgers Back on Winning Track
The Arizona Dodgers rallied for five runs in the final two innings to trip the Rangers 7-5. The Dodgers were 0-for-13 with runners in scoring position but a four-run eighth inning, helped greatly by four Ranger errors and a balk, turned the game around.

Hong-Chih Kuo started and pitched a perfect inning in his first action since being placed on the disabled list April 30. Rubby De La Rosa was tapped for four runs, three earned, over he next three innings.

Kevin Childs (#37, 2009) and Justin Dignelli (#32) added a scoreless inning each before Roberto Feliciano (1-0) pitched the final three innings and earned his first win of the season,

Johan Garcia (#8) was hit by a pitch, Nick Akins (#20) doubled and a ground ball by Clay Calfee drove in the first run of the game for the Dodgers. Garcia lived on an error in the third and scored later in the inning on a throwing error as he attempted to steal third base.

Trailing 4-2 in the eighth, Travis Vetters walked and moved to second on a balk. Brian Ruggiano struck out for the second out of the inning and was given the rest of the contest off when he apparently offered to help the poor, blind umpire to his car after the game.

Ramon Jean lived on a fielding error, Jan Vazquez singled and Stetson Banks #23) reached on another error as Jean and Vasquez scored. On the fourth error of the inning, Garcia was thrown out at second base. Chris Henderson's (#22) sac fly in the ninth allowed Akins to cross the plate with the final run.

Akins was the only Dodgers with more than a single hit.

Dodgers top Pirates by an Extra Point
The Dominican Dodgers Campo Las Palmas ballpark was a lively place with 32 hits flying around the park and 27 runs crossing the plate. The Dodgers never led in the game until a wild pitch allowed Bladimir Franco to score the winning run in the last of the ninth.

The Pirates ripped Florinceo Bustillos for nine hits and seven runs, five earned, during his three-inning start. Daniel Tamarez allowed the next three runs before Joady Nuñez and Jose Garcia (1-0) stopped the bleeding with Garcia earning the win on the final Dodgers rally.

Six different Dodgers had multiple hits, with Charlie Mirabel and Enily Morales collecting three each and Freudys Perez, Jose Lugo, Marlon Sucre and Jose Capellan each adding two. Mirabel and Lugo knocked in three runs each. Perez and Sucre collected two.

The Dodgers trailed 12-5 before scoring two in the seventh on Lugo's two run doubled. Mirabal's two-run single in the eighth tied the game at 12-each and after the Pirates added their last run in the top of the ninth, the young Dodgers launched their winning rally.

Pittsburgh never got an out in the inning. Morales lined this third hit, a double, to open things and Bladimir Franco and Mercedes drew successive walks to load the bases. Sucre walked to force in the tying run and a wild pitch ended the four and one-half hour game.
