OGDEN -- Ogden Skipper Damon Berryhill and crew were looking for redemption Sunday afternoon after blowing a two-run ninth-inning lead against Helena on Saturday night.
Helena right-hander Taylor Williams had other plans, shutting down Ogden's offense with a one-hitter through five innings, while the Brewer bats worked Raptor pitchers for 13 hits and an 8-6 win at Lindquist Field.
"We just couldn't get anything going offensively today," Berryhill said. "We were overly aggressive and had a lot of outs on first pitches. We tried to do a little too much instead of sticking with the game plan."
Ogden's bullpen woes also carried over from Saturday as the Raptors went through four pitchers on the afternoon, starting with key prospect Zachary Bird who struck out six over five innings while giving up a pair of runs on five hits.
Leftie Jake Fisher replaced Bird to start the sixth and gave up four runs on three hits and a pair of walks through just 1/3 innings before Jose Diaz took over.
Diaz fared slightly better with a pair of runs on three hits, giving the Brewers an 8-2 edge by the eighth inning.
"You're having trouble getting outs and you go to another guy and it seems to just carry over," Berryhill said. "That's the one tough thing about the bull pen, if someone in front of you struggles, it's your job to come in and throw strikes and get him out of that situation."
The highlight of Ogden's offense on Sunday was a first-pitch solo homerun in the second inning from first baseman Jesus Valdez. The dinger was Valdez' second of the year and gave the Raptors an early 1-0 lead.
Ogden added another in the bottom of the third on a wild pitch from Williams that brought in Jesmuel Valentin, but the Brewers countered in the top of the fourth with a pair of runs that tied things at two.
Helena took the lead for good in the top of the fourth, scoring four runs that started with a double from Michael Ratterree, followed by a pair of singles from Dustin Houle and Angel Ortega.
With bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the eighth, Ogden rallied as Helena pitcher Barrett Astin walked in a run followed by a base hit from Justin Chigbogu that scored a pair of RBIs.
In the bottom of the ninth, Ogden bats made a final push with two outs as the Raptors placed a pair of runners and Valentin drove one home before Helena ended the night.
Helena (18-12) leads the series 2-0, with Ogden (15-15) hosting game three of the four-game set at 7 p.m. tonight starting at 7 p.m. at Lindquist Field.
