Repeat the feat: Ogden Raptors score twice in 9th to win Saturday at Missoula

By Brett Hein, Standard-Examiner - | Jun 26, 2021

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.
