Ogden Drops 2010 Opener at Casper

Casper' Ghosts were definitely unfriendly hosts, scoring five times in the last of the seventh inning to break a 1-1 tie and hand Ogden a 6-4 opening day loss.

Ogden starter Greg Wilborn worked five strong innings, allowing one run on five hits, striking out six and walking two. Delson Rivas, making his professional debut after signing in the off-season as a free agent, pitched a scoreless sixth but was tagged with four runs in the seventh. Nick Gaudi surrendered the fifth run of the inning.

An error by catcher Michael Pericht and wild pitches by Rivas and Gaudi helped the Ghosts in the big inning.

Shortstop Jake Lemmerman, the Dodgers #4 selection in the 2010 draft, walked in the first inning and scored on Praicht's double to give the Raptors a 1-0 lead. Ogden scored in the fifth to tie the game before the game-winning fifth inning rally.

Third baseman Jesse Bosnick, #13 pick in the 2010 draft, singled in the second and outfielder Austin King singled in the third but the Raptors were then held hitless until Pericht slugged a home run to lead off the seventh.

Trailing 6-2 in the ninth inning, first baseman Chris Henderson led off with a double and scored one out later on Pericht's RBI single. Outfielder Jonathan Garcia drove in the final run with a ground ball after an Ogden error.

Pericht had three of Ogden's six hits and collected three RBI.

The third 2010 draftees in the opening lineup, outfielder Steve Domecus (#9), was hitless in three trips.

Ogden's Carlos Frias will go against Casper's Alvin Mejias in the second game of the series tonight.
