OGDEN -- The Ogden Raptors pounded 23 hits on Wednesday night.
Thursday, it took them six innings to collect their first hit.
Missoula right-hander Felipe Perez was masterful in tossing a two-hit gem as the Osprey retaliated for the previous night's 17-run loss by shutting down Ogden 10-1 at Lindquist Field.
Joe Munoz went 4 for 5 with four RBIs, two doubles and two runs scored while Daniel Palka went 3 for 4 and was a triple short of the cycle with one RBI and three runs scored to pace the Osprey.
Palka's solo homer in the first was almost all the run support Perez needed.
The Pioneer League leaderboard for complete game shutouts looked like this before the game: Perez, Felipe -- 1; 145 others tied at 0.
Perez nearly made it two on Thursday; aside from him, only Great Falls' Andrew Mitchell has thrown a complete game this year.
"Every day is different and they took it to us today," Ogden manager Damon Berryhill said. "(Perez) pitched a great game against us. We helped him out a lot, swung at bad pitches, but for the most part, he commanded the baseball in and out and mixed in a good changeup. He got us frustrated chasing a lot of balls, you've got to tip your hat to him."
Ogden's Joey Curletta, who had seven RBIs in the previous game, broke up Perez's no-hitter by lining a shot off the left field wall for a leadoff double in the sixth inning.
And that was it for the Raptors until the ninth inning, one day after setting single-game highs in nearly every hitting category.
"Offensively we should have done a better job being more selective," Berryhill said, "but different day, different results."
Perez struck out four, walked three before and only allowed one earned run when Jesmuel Valentin reached on an error in the bottom of the ninth and scored when Brandon Trinkwon lined a double inside the third base bag.
The Osprey had relievers up in the bullpen when Perez walked Jose Valdez with two outs, but he struck out Austin Cowen to pick up the complete game victory.
Perez's complete game shutout came on July 1 and he allowed only one run over eight innings on July 6. The Raptors got to him for six runs, four earned, over five innings on July 12 while handing him his first loss, but Wednesday, he was in complete command.
The right-hander from Anaheim, Calif., went undrafted out of high school in 2012 after telling everyone he was going to play college ball at UCLA, then signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Berryhill said he doesn't worry about draft status.
"All I know is that's the second time I've seen him pitch," he said. "The first time we got to him and that time, he did a great job commanding the baseball. He pitched like he should have been a high pick."
Missoula scored three runs in the second inning, then Palka missed his second home run by about eight inches in the third inning, leading off with a double that all but cleared the right field fence. He later scored on an RBI single from Munoz.
Ogden starter Francisco Villa (2-2) took the loss, allowing eight hits and six runs, five earned, over five innings while walking two and striking out three.
The Osprey added one run in the sixth, two in the seventh and one each in the eighth and ninth innings for a 10-0 lead before the Raptors finally snapped the shutout.
Prior to his RBI double in the ninth, Trinkwon had been hitting the ball hard all game but mostly right at Osprey defenders.
He crushed a long foul ball in the first, just missing leading off with a homer for the second straight game, then drilled a liner to center fielder Colin Bray. In the fourth, as Perez had faced the minimum (thanks to a double play after a first-inning walk), Trinkwon smashed another line drive but it was just a step away from first baseman Palka, who snowconed it in his glove.
Ogden (14-13) closes its series with Missoula (12-15) tonight before welcoming Helena to Lindquist Field for four games starting Saturday.
