Ogden Raptors take advantage of Helena Brewers' errors in 7-2 win

OGDEN — For the second consecutive game, the Ogden Raptors prevailed over the Helena Brewers.

This time by score of 7-2 Sunday afternoon at Lindquist Field.

The Raptors (14-13), wearing their Sunday Hawaiian-themed jerseys, scored four runs in a bizarre sequence of events in the second inning.

Two of the runs scored came on back-to-back throwing errors by the Brewers (12-15), who committed four errors total — three in the second inning — in their fourth consecutive loss. The lone hit of the inning was a shallow pop-up double by Starling Heredia that Helena second-baseman Franly Mallen lost in the blistering sun. 

Helena wasn’t the only team on the field who struggled fielding the ball. Ogden committed two errors of its own in the win.

Former University of Utah slugger Dallas Carroll, who was named a 2017 NCAA Division I All-American, started at third base and in the lead-off position for the Brewers. He went 2 for 5 at the plate with a double and an RBI. He also committed a pair of errors in the field. 

Crisis Ramirez got the start for Ogden and threw 2 2/3 innings of work to give Ogden started on the right foot defensively. He allowed both Helena runs in the second, though only one was earned, while also giving up three hits and striking out five batters. His replacement, James Carter, also sat down five Brewers in 2 1/3 innings of work and was credited with the win. Jeff Paschke picked up the save for the Raptors.

Harold Chirino had the misfortune of being on the mound for the Brewers during their second inning fielding struggles. Though the Raptors scored four runs on Chirino, just one was earned against him but that was enough to label him as the losing pitcher in the contest.

Tyler Adkison and Moises Perez were the lone Raptors with multiple hits as each finished with two hits, including a double by Adkison.

Both teams will meet again for the third game of a four-game home series Monday at 7 p.m. at Lindquist Field.
