Repeat the feat: Ogden Raptors score twice in 9th to win Saturday at Missoula
The two teams scored twice as many runs Saturday as they did in Friday’s thriller, but the end was the same:
The Ogden Raptors scored two runs in the top of the ninth to outlast Missoula 12-11 in a second-straight rollercoaster win to take back control of the Pioneer League’s best record.
Ogden (22-9) built a 10-6 lead when Pavin Parks tripled to score Josh Broughton in the seventh inning.
But Nick Gatewood hit a two-run homer for Missoula (21-10) in the bottom half of the seventh, and consecutive doubles in the eighth pushed across three runs to see the Paddleheads take an 11-10 lead.
Raptors outfielder Jakob Goldfarb was again at the center of his team’s final-inning takeover Saturday after hitting a two-run homer for the win Friday. Goldfarb tripled to score Andy Armstrong, then scored himself on a Broughton single for the 12-11 advantage.
Dylan Pearce, who pitched the final 2 1/3 innings for the win Friday, took the mound in the ninth Saturday and took four batters to earn the save.
Each team’s starter — Reza Aleaziz for Ogden, Domingo Pena for Missoula — gave up five runs in five innings.
Raul Shah was a third Raptor to triple Saturday and finished 3 for 6 with a double and three RBIs. Parks also had three hits with a triple and a double, and Broughton finished 4 for 6. Goldfarb scored three runs.
Jose Reyes led Missoula by hitting 4 for 5.
The two teams conclude their six-game series at 5:05 p.m. Sunday and 7:05 p.m. Monday.
