Boise walks off Ogden Raptors in 3-2 decision Friday night
The Ogden Raptors finally got a much-needed run in the top of the ninth Friday night in Boise, only for the Hawks to return the favor in the bottom half.
Alan Alonso scored from second on a double-play attempt and Boise claimed a 3-2, walk-off victory over Ogden.
In the top of the ninth, Logan Williams led off with a single and scored with two outs when Rafael Narea tallied an infield hit, tying the game 2-2.
Mitchell Stone took the mound for Ogden (6-4) in the bottom of the ninth and surrendered a single to Trevor Minder to lead off the frame for Boise (7-3). Alonso pinch-ran for Minder, moved to second on a hit-by-pitch and scored on a grounder from Kole Kaler to end the game.
Ogden’s other run came in the fifth when Cameron Phelts, who hit 3 for 5 to break out of a mini-slump on the road trip, singled in Landen Barns.
Ronny Orta threw 5 1/3 innings in a start for the Raptors, allowing seven hits and striking out five. The Hawks only got to him in the third; Kaler led off with a double, scored on a sacrifice fly, and two singles that followed pushed another run across for a 2-0 lead.
Foster Pace replaced Orta in the sixth and threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing just one baserunner.
Along with Phelts, Tim Bouchard (2 for 4) and Narea (2 for 3) were Ogden’s other multi-hit batters. The Raptors outhit the Hawks 11-9.
The two teams finish the series at 7:05 p.m. Saturday and 1:05 p.m. Sunday.
