HELENA, Mont. -- On a night when the big leaguers staged their home run derby, several Pioneer League teams did a little slugging of their own.
Helena and Ogden certainly supplied plenty of offense on Monday night. The teams combined for 16 runs and 25 hits in a wild game that included four lead changes in the first four innings. But in the end it was the Helena bullpen that shut the door for the Brewers.
Chris Razo picked up his fifth win in six appearances out of the bullpen after facing just one batter in the game, Taylor Williams was impressive in four innings, and Sean Albury pitched a perfect ninth as Helena held on for a 9-7 victory in action at Kindrick Legion Field.
The win gave the Brewers their third series win and finished off the homestand with a record of 4-3.
The Raptors now head home at 13-12, and prepare for a seven-game homestand.
The Brewers jumped on Ogden starter Zachary Bird early. Omar Garcia and Charlie Markson hit back-to-back singles to start the game and Michael Ratterree followed hitting a liner in to the gap in left-center. Garcia and Markson would score on Ratterree's 10th double of the season.
The Helena lead wouldn't last long as the Raptors got back-to-back singles off Barrett Astin in the top of the third and then Jacob Scavuzzo pulled a three-run homer to left to make it 3-2.
After Astin got two outs, Brandon Trinkwon slapped a double to left and Hank Yates followed with a single up the box to give Ogden a 4-2 lead.
But as quickly as the Brewers had given up the lead, they got it right back. With the bases loaded and two-outs, Adam Giacalone hit a bullet into the right-center gap that cleared the bases. Just like that Helena was up 5-4.
After a scoreless frame in the third, the Raptors got right back to the scoring in the top of the fourth. Scavuzzo led off the inning with a double over the head of Garcia in center. Astin walked Jesmuel Valentin and Trinkwon would pull a single into right to tie the game.
Valentin would then give Ogden the lead when the Brewers couldn't covert a double play on a ground ball.
After Turay saved a run in the top of the inning, Helena struck back in the bottom of the frame. Nathan Orf led off the inning with a walk and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Garcia then doubled to left and Orf beat the throw as it got by the catcher.
Giacalone would finish the game 2 for 2 with four RBIs.
The hit parade would continue as Turay pulled a double down the line to put two in scoring position and Giacalone would later score Helena's ninth run on a groundout.
Not only did that give the Brewers the lead, it put Razo in line for his fifth win of the season and he would get it when Williams and Albury pitched the remaining five innings of the game.
